    How did you get green forks, I didn't think Magura did them in green ?

    Cheers everyone!

    Simonhi... you are right, Magura dont offer the Durin SL with green decals, you can get the Durin SL in green but its the stanchions that are green.

    I had the Magura, and ZTR Alpine decals, custom made - can put you in contact with the person that did them for me if you wish? If you give her original decals she can change them to any almost any colour under the sun.

    That's good attaention to detail ...I'm in the process of getting a few bits together for a Lynskey Pro 26 with Carbon Lefty (110m) from the Flash Team bike but I'm happy to stay witht he green accent colour of the fork and use that for other parts of the bikes. I did think about getting the green on the fork changed to gold but I'm gonna stick with green.

    Cheers anyway, I thought that is what you did. Just goes to show it's the small things that make the difference.

    Si.

    That is a freaking beauty of a bike. Very nice.

    I've got a passing interest in getting some black/kawasaki green Fox 36 lower legs, could your contact sort something like that out too?

    If you have the original decals to send her then yeah... dont see why not - have PM'd you with the contact details

    nice one, cheers. It's not something I'm going to do immediately, but maybe when the forks look a bit tatty, and i have a bit more spare cash lying around. :lol:

    Can you pass on the contact info to get some custom decals made please ?

    I'm also wanting to get some decals done for some ZTR Arch rims from red to green.

    Cheers,

    Simon.
