Here is my purple monster, it looks much better under natural light, I will get some pics tomorrow. Turned out better than I had hoped, the anodisers surpassed themselves. After all my recent subdued efforts I thought it was time that Pastey showed his true colours.

Looks awesome, could I possibly get the details of the place that did the anodizing as I have a few bits I want doing.
Cheers

It might just be the pics but that looks rather pink to me... It looked better before tbh, but considering its you who's built it why am I surprised :P

That's pink. It just is. I always had doubts about you pal and now it's been confirmed. Good for you mate!

You'll have to rotate your bars forwards so you get your limp wrist action working to match the colour!

Suits you sir! :wink:

Thought it looked sweet in black/gold! Will be good to see a natural light photo though, the anodising looks quality work though!

I wanted to slate it for being pink, but saw it in the flesh and it looks the nuts to be honest.

Hi Mike, I had to jump through hoops to get this frame done, I tried lots and lots of different companies but I found only one who would touch a bike frame. I will contact them to see if they are happy for me to pass on their details.

The frame looks ace, but why, for the love of God, did you have the cranks done???

Believe it or not I asked for the cranks to be done black, but the message never got passed on so I now have a purple Hammerschmidt.

Many thanks, I don't want a full frame doing, just a few bits and pieces.

My partner is of the female persuasion and as such she likes pink things, she has an Orange P7 that is going to get a girly make over. You think my bike looks gay, wait till you see hers :shock:

I was a bit disappointed in the first pics you put up... but you soon shut me up with the following pics... looks great!

I bet your "partners" bike is actually your commuter :P

Commuting into work on a bike would be foolish and nigh on impossible, only a flight of stairs separate my home and my workplace and riding a bike down the steps would result in some sort of head/neck injury. I will post pics of the P7 when finished, its gonna look like a lesbians bedroom !!!!!!! :o
