Love the bike £15 stroke of luck
The brakes? I think you'd be OK either way
Properly setup cantis which contact the rim square on with the brakes applied are fine
BITD we rode aggressively with cantis and most of us didn't die even before vee brakes?
However, I have to concede cantis aren't as powerful as vee brakes! You can always fit your Vees and keep that cantis in the ole' parts bin...
If you upgrade the brakes... What's next? Sounds like a rolling build coming on???
As for paint? Looks good
I'd keep the original paint
I love how happy you look! The genuine joy only a RetroBiking bargain can bring!
