Agree. When it comes to bling on a Superlite, Munga is very tough competition.

in my price range that I could ride straight away so I took the dive even tho it has pink decals and pink cables.
Looking on the internet and here, I havn't been able to see many of the victory for sale in this colour, which is leading me to consider that it might be rare or just no one likes pink cables So I need to decide if I should change anything on the bike or replace worn parts with the correct items. Going through all the parts on the bike everything seems to be correct except for a new rear tyre that is a mismatch to the front. I have riden a few mid range peugeots before and the victory certainly feels stronger and was great fun to ride ( at night when no one can see the pink cables and factory pink repco stickers on it.
I don't have a camera on me to take good quality pictures so I will link to an identical frame colour combo that I have.
The item link below- I do not know and have not contacted that person, hope I am not breaking any forum post rules- I am just trying to show what frame I have.

If anyone can give me any information about the rarity of the bike in this frame colour and what I should do with the bike (restore to original or put on updated bits) I would really appreciate it.
Been fun looking through 80 odd pages of Repco Appreciation posts, Repco seems far more popular here than the other brands Appreciation posts.
