thats a very good looking bike, i really like the tube profiles on those and the smaller size always make them look better, shame im too tall for the smaller ones.

i go through fazes, i only rode the fury about 5 times, stripped it down and built a 456 then sold that last year, missus has already given me an ultimatum if the boardman is on ebay by the end of summer......................................i have found a lovely 1 bedroom flat :lol:

i stole your idea 8) why would you have red decals when there is nothing to match? have you clear coated yours by the way or just left them? still waitng to get my wheels back of merlin,

Ah well I accept your gratitude then :lol: I'm positive others have copied my bike name idea too, its good to be a pioneer.

I havent clear coated them, they were similar to the decals that came to put my name on it which have been on almost t2 years, cleaned after every ride (without scrubbing ofcourse) and look good as new. So figured I wouldnt bother. Obviously forks get battered a bit more but short of a huge off they should be fine for a long time. Would be interested to hear if you do clear coat them though.
