    So here she is, the capricious bint that threw me off a few weeks back (breaking my wrist in the process).

    The rattle-can sprayjob and home made decals look pretty dodgy close up, but overall I'm not unhappy. Apart from the arm, that is.

    And this is what she looked like when I bought her for nz$15.

  2. I quite like that actually. I think I have the same bike - in original livery + rusty bits etc...
    Get some nice close up outside pictures please so we can see your detailed decals
    Not a bike for the limp cyclwrist - hope it was 'armless...:laugh:

    Feckless, I think I can see why you fell off, your right pedal seems to be made out of a box and in contact with the ground, not good for cornering.:blush:

    I only did the downtube logos and the stripes, the headbadge came from eBay.

    If you look closely at the pic below you can see the hand-cut outline and the dismally rough paint finish.

    And here's a completely gratuitous pic taken this afternoon.

    It's getting worse, that block has turned into a whole tree. I'll never get around corners now.

  7. Neat. And the tyre graphics nearly match up with the valves...oh yes. :biggrin::biggrin:
    Is that Brooks leather bar tape btw?
    And is the saddle tilted up - or a trick of the photo?

    Brooks bar tape, yes. And the saddle does point up a little, but the angle definitely looks worse in these pics.

    As for the tyres, well I tried but being pissed when I put them on probably didn't help much.

  9. All it needs now are some Christophe toe clips and some Alfredo Binda straps. Very nice BTW.
