Ahoy folks!

I'm in the process of modifying a scooter i've bought and have had the wheels powdercoated gold. I was going to spray the bike a nice grey but my folks brought up the subject of my old valver yesterday so i've had the idea to paint in williams colours for a bit of fun! :D

I actually wanted to do it in sports blue (449) like my old one but it seems Halfords don't do premixed tins of this anymore which is a bit of a pain. :(

Can someone tell me what was the name of the other blue renault used as i can't remember thesedays?

I'll also be wanting some stickers to go with it...seen some on ebay but no "hybrid" stickers that i remember from a few years back? Does anyone on here do these?

Thanks in advance.

theres a place on ebay that can mix up 449 for you, or as we all know the 432 monaco blue is still available

Ok for anyone interested...here you all go

100 quid non runner...bought it a few years ago;

Looks gay doesn't it so then it got stripped;

The frame powdercoated;

Then 70cc'd;

New forks grafted on so i get a disc;

Then a repaint;

Then i sold it but bought it back at the tail end of last year. Now for some tuning - 22mm carb up from 13mm and a pipercross open cone (no worries about heatsoak ;) ;) ) and a sport exhaust;

Stripped the front end again;

Then grafted some beefier Aerox forks on with a nice bar conversion;

Look how much fatter they are compared to the old ones;

Then powdercoated some aerox wheels for 13" goodness;

Added 285mm big brake conversion;

Aerox mudguard;

So you can see the plan...paint it 432, add some stickers and i'll have a williams (ish) ;) ...well as close as i'll ever get now considering there never any for sale up here. :(

Next year i'll make it liquid cooled;
