It's a cyfac. It used to look like this originally:
Glad you guys like it. My friend with the Orange/pink duell offered to give the frame a wild paintjob. Current plan is to replicate decals and then paint it either in klein/talbot sunset fades or in a blue/green/yellow fade (pic of the fork is just to show the colours).
I would go for the original paintjob
What's wrong with the downtube on the picture with the fork?
Downtube hernia. Could require extensive surgery.
(it's the handlebar)
In my defence, I've not been up long.
Nah, I got plenty of original bikes and since this one doesn't have the og paint anymore I see it as an opportunity to get creative. I'm also not a big fan of the original paintjob, especially the tribal patterns on the seattube...
It'll be a long-term project so I got some more time to thoroughly think this through :)

You have photo of the duell? Sitting on one of those frames i'm considering repainting.
Gave my Stinner a much needed clean and swapped out the bartape for some camo and a Orange CK headset.
Sure, I love that paint job it's so bright that it's almost distracting when we ride together. The decals are actually just black outlines, the fill in is the white base layer which is neccessary for the fluoro colours. Nevermind the bar angle, I made it abundantly clear what I think about it but he likes it.
Nice! Stinners just look so clean, good job. And those fairweather tires are great!
Yeah agree. That is well nice
picked this up from @Rob-B-Mac, here's how its looking with a different stem, bars, saddle and tyres. Really happy with the feeling of it
sorry for the double post, kept getting a server error
:) is nice. Any plans to change the fork? at least colour?
the miss-matched fork is because the previous owner cut the original too short, I quite like it like this but may strip it all down and join the sikfadez bandwagon or make use of the lasercutter at uni to make some stencils for a respray?
I like the mismatched fork. Reminds me of a parallax I've seen with similar idea (white frame black fork)

^this, also like the fork.
