really cool bike to add to a collection. I bet its a bouncy ride though.


You are right. I rode it off road once before I sent it for custom spraying. It was a handful in tricky terrains due to its high centre of gravity. I even had my nuts crushed by the TT. Wasn't a fun experience... :cry:

I think a really great job was done on the rock shox fork. It looks so much better than factory paint.

The electric storm thing is not my style, but it is very well done. I would love to see step by step pics of the masking and painting. It looks so complex!

Pretty.

The original RS paint job was matt finished and they were all stickers instead of spraying on. I felt that it didn't compliment the bike at all. Plus, the artist offered to spray the fork together with the frame so I left it with him.

I'm sorry I do not have the step by step pictures as they were not released to me. But from someone else, the job is relatively easy but it requires a lot of patience and skills to make it stand out.

Maybe I should dig up a photograph of the bike before it underwent 'surgery'. I assure you it was fugly as hell...

Wow man that is really a piece of art you've got there :!: :!:When I see this my heart beats a bit faster haha! And the weight is very good for this bike. Don't think that you take this bike out in the mud ;-)
