Planning on sending my Race to Argos to get a new paint job and gain disc tabs.

Many years ago i saw a white team issue Bonty being used in the UK, it was white and carried the silver on white decals i think. I liked the paint job then but it would be nice to have a look before getting it done.

I could instead of using stock race stickers get the decals custom made more like a road lite.

Any pictures, opinions?

I always kinda liked the neon gray Bontrager used to paint the team bikes back in the eighties.

I'm with you. I really like the gray with wither yellow or blue edged decals, or the orange.

Here's a pic of one of my favorites. (this is not my bike, I stole the image off of one of the older threads).

if white's your thing

...there was a very cool white one from the UK which had been updated with disk tabs posted on here not too long ago...definitely worth a search.

or check the "post your bontragers" thread for a great range of colours.

i ended up going with a basic black with silver decals with yellow rings, am stoked with the way it looks.

forgot all about this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can't figure out how i could forget what i own!!!!!!!!

this is what i ride my race...



the race is what i intend to respray and add disc brakes to.



this is what was in a bag under the stairs my spare privateer frame kit, the stickers, aren't stuck on just to give an idea if the colours work. even found a pair of Judys i forgot about.

Any opinions on this? i am thinking that the colour scheme has to be black and silver on the white frame, agree?

I'm a fan of the gray with blue/white panels and the orange. At first I wasn't so sure about the road lite decals on a mountain frame, but now I really like them.

Here are mine.
