Hello all, complete newbie here, a member of another forum suggested I posted on here
I have a bike as per the title, which is a little the worse for wear - does anyone remember them?
Dark grey frame, with NEON yellow forks/stem/handlebars.
Double butted chromoly frame, with a 300LX groupset on it.
The frame has started going rusty, so it may be that I need to get a donor frame to replace it - is it generalyl curtains if these have started going rusty?
They were alegedly coated with a plastic substance that would mean they would never rust
so I fear water has got inside the frame and it has rusted through.
If the frame is rescuable, I intend to get it stripped, and painted in the same colours, but then my next challenge will be the period stickers/decals.
I have a couple of contacts who might be able to help me out, and I'm planning, (when I get the bike back at the end of the month, fingers crossed if the house purchase all goes through) to take some pictures, and measure the decals, and send them off to a few 'sticker makers'
Any tips or advice on how I should proceed?
