Nice. So did you buy it in 1995 with hand painted graphics?

No, was originally 1995 purple and belonged to a cycling chum of mine (originally built for him). I got the frame, seat pin, bars and stem back in 2009 then took it to Pacconi for the repaint. Mark got an old mate to do the calligraphy and I put the groupo in including my old Spinergys from 2000.
She came up great and I still ride her today albeit with some Mavic Open Pro’s laced into DuraAce 10sp hubs. Remarkably sweet and great handling bike.


Cool - who’s Mark? I thought Paconi was Kevin Wigham? I wonder if his old mate was Ken Dickie, a bit of a local legend when it comes to hand painted graphics. I’d love to see some closer shots of his handiwork.

Mark Windsor was the painter in there. Hrs done 4 bikes for me in the past, that was the last one.
Thinking back, I do recollect the name Ken Dickie. Mark did the base and clear coats.


Looks amazing - great stuff!
