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:

Thank you very much, Shamus. Most importantly, for the help with the badge. :oops:

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...
