cheers mate :) the colour (luckily!) is a stock RAL colour code. (I'll be able to find it again with some hunting for anyone who needs it) After stripping the paint off I got it re powdercoated @ a motorbike powdercoaters. cost? £30.

cranks & rear mech were both hand polished (previously rough as hell!)
Its a long process starting from scratch, but altogether more rewarding in the end :)

Looks like scant's FRO has nosed in front with 12 hours left.

I wonder if our newest memeber 'scantette' cast the deciding vote :lol:

Decided to revert the contest back to monthly, so it looks like Scant's FRO has taken the prize for October. A deserved winner. As well as the glory you also win a 1 1/4" flexstem ! Just in time for Christmas too.
