    You bet, it's the only one I've got. As crazy as it sounds, none of the six other bikes in my garage belong to me.

    Looks great. How did you go about two colours for the powder coating?

    The creme is lacquer based auto paint over the top, didn't go on as well as the powder guys led me to believe but I'm still pleased with how it turned out. Just enough of a detail to keep it interesting.

    Thanks. I've just got my Turner RFX back from the powder coaters. Because its a linkage bike I can get multiple colours easily. However I've got a Monocog and a GT frame that I also want to refinish. My powdercoater had indicated that multiple colours on the one frame is very difficult. I've been considering air brushing over the top, so its good to see that it can be done. I really like what you've done!
