I recently paid £45 to have a frame/forks blasted and powder coated in a single gloss white.

Painting does tend to cost more around the £100 figure from experience.

£35 for blasting, single colour powder coat and lacquer by a local firm in Southampton, although that was frame only without forks and it was left for me to sort the decals out myself.

Fritz -

First thing: Nooooooo! You could have bought my Bob Jackson's-restored Bridgestone RB-1!

I was just about to urge you to go to Velocals for your decals but I've just checked and they don't have anything for the RB-2. Finding the correct decals for my RB-1 makes me want to get it restored all over again.

I've only just read the full thread (I'm at work :oops: )
Don't do a cheap powdercoat job on an RB-2, its too nice for that (unless the bike has problems and its going to be a winter hack).
Bridgestones are rare outside of America and really highly regarded, do it justice!

i know what you mean... it deserves a prober paint job, and the right decals..
but the finanses might force me to give it a black powder job, and white decals..from velocal.(with the RB but without the 1)

it has serious rust problems, that has to be solved now, or it will be to late..one cable guide already going, the bb is attacked, plus 7.8 other places

was going to use it for daily commuting..but..

what size was yours, and is there a pic somewhere

I think its a 53. The seatpost was out too far when that photo was taken, but the bike is/was a shade small for me.
