I'm also going to re pain the forks and triple clamp. The red has faded to almost a pink.


We don't have that problem here... More worried about the salt attacking the paint :)

It is the long one. Anyone got a close up pic of the one found near the top of the fork ? It is something like this.


Try Classic Transfers for the sticker, I got mine from there.

Hello Ross,

If you are an originality fetishist then be aware that the colour of the suspension components didn't match the frame from new, though doubtless it has faded further since. The Marzocchi bits are more orange than the red on the frame. I painted my Marzocchi bits with RAL2002, though I don't know that its 100% correct.

isaydingdong.co.uk may also have the Marzocchi stickers you're looking for.

Have fun.

Hi Sheikh,
Im not sure I am in need of it to be totally original. When I do the forks, it will probably be same red as rest of bike. To be honest, I am struggling with weather to re new all fixings in nickel plate or keep original. The original screws/bolts are looking just a bit tired.
Just not sure. Love the look of newish fixings, but then it somehow loses its oldness !
1st world problems !
