thanks all ...all these paint jobs are known to me

@Karl
the painting of JonRock is indeed very nice
There was still an amazing paint job by Rody (Groovy)


(couldn't find the image source)


I could imagine a Yo eddy in this painting very well

Nader, the one by Rody is incredible, I hadn't seen that pic in quite a while- Thanks.
And yes the Serotta is sweet too ! Good luck on deciding
