It's a matter of taste. Personally, I think that vintage splatter paint jobs are still splatter paint jobs. It looks better without it, I'd say.

It wasn't fugly. That was a nice era in vintage bike colors. Who didn't love Tomac in neon?

What is Rubio's? Is that the fish tacos place?

Shouldn't have been splatter unless it was custom...

The bike should look like this:

Dude this was done back in 94' or 93'..... Wasn't done yesterday.

Rubios fish tacos....we were young and liked the place...a lot. So we all had stickers, we liked to think we were sponsored by them...:)

It's called eBay, it's like this amazing on-line marketplace where you can buy and sell most anything.

M2s aren't particularly rare, though you'll be lucky to find one like the beautiful example shown above ( I don't mean yours). Of course if you want to strip that "ugly" paint off you won't care about the condition.

Interesting choice of cranks and pedals - were you trying to put together the most warranty-issue prone drivetrain possible.

EDIT: Loving the VW Fox in the background - wish I still had mine, cheap on gas and handling like a go-kart.

Once again for the short bus people like yourself ...this bike was done damn near twenty years ago....you think I new anything about drivetrain issues(it worked just fine after yrs and yrs of abuse) or keeping original paint. This was my FIRST bike...we didn't have the Internet to ask experts like yourself.....good lord dude.

Damn you are a smart fella...thanks for the ebay tip. I didn't even think of that over the past 2 yrs.

Having you around is such a blessing...thanks for the response
