I'm considering it, especially with the British flag as well. Mind you, I make no claims to sartorial sophistication and as an ex-pat in the US the flag would be the most important element for me Wink

Cool Smile though it may raise an eyebrow or three at my LBS especially as they also have a racing team Big Grin

In times gone by we all had our names on our bikes, ideally hand painted by the chap who built the thing.

Hmm having Fish_n_Chips on my bike might be ironic...

I like my bike but it needs a hidden 25cc motor Smile
