    All the inner frames are decals of ebay..I ordered the wording then ordered some plain yellow sheets to cut out shapes..All water proof vinyl which sticks rock solid...

    Ref post got the original Ritchey post then using insulation tape (not masking) taped one strip up the front and one strip up the back.Sanded down the rest of the post then a couple of thin coats of primer followed by two top coats,added the Ritchey decals once again ordered of ebay and a couple of coats of clear lacquer... Remember thins coats though too much paint and the post might become too wide..

    Bike is looking good man. White seat post, saddle, bar tape & stem make a big difference!

    Will you please provide a link to the yellow water proof vinyl sheets you ordered on ebay?

    Nice looking bike. Did you add the rainbow stripes yourself as well? Only I wasn't aware of Boardman bikes having World Champion heritage i.e. being ridden to a world championship?

    a better alternativge to clear tape, it will help keep to stone chips off the inner sides.
