Reminds me of the bikes from the mid '80s, with that black and pink colour combo. Looks great, though. Makes a nice change from just another chrome Laserlite!

My Father once spoke to me and said "The way you look at your bike is the way I see My children, I look past the imperfections and rough surfaces to the beauty of the finished product."

Sorry, for getting the colour combo wrong, but the sunlight in those photos you posted made the parts look brighter. Don't get so much sunlight in the UK, by comparison! Well, that's my excuse...
