    Yep, Carlton at their most outrageous, had the designer been breathing paint fumes?

    I love it I think it will really go well with a pair of 70s spankly hot pants

    How on earth did you manage to get the colours I least like, and (worse) the impossible colour combinations (purple and pink, purple and gold, gold paint and silvery chrome) ....... on one single bike! And have me drooling. Quite an astonishing machine.

    But what you are you going to do with the pump and the water bottle?

    The frame came in the wonderful flam purple, its been used and has the odd chip but was too good to respray, the former owner obviously used and enjoyed the machine. The pump is OK as I bought is specially for this build, as for the water bottle, mmm you've got me thinking!
