The prices bJ, mercian, yates all charge all seem to be about the same.

anyone a bit more reasonable? £25 for applying decals seems a bit rich if your having a repaint done etc

Find your local powder coaters ( MUCH tougher finish ) and there's someone on this website ( forgot who! :oops: ) who runs off decals of all kinds.

Yup,

I could paint my Holdsworth Professional orange...then it would match my Chas Roberts painted Specialised Stumpjumper mountainbike!!!

Might just go for another retro (1970s) colour - something from the Porsche or VW palette!

My Pro is metallic black with gold lug lining - very John Player Special.

Like your Holdsworth though - how long ya had it?

Roadking.

Not mine I'm afraid, just a pic of a frame I've lust after for about 30+ years.

Maybe someday I'll find one.


Good luck with your restoration. JPS colour scheme does sound cool.


Here's another pic of a full build in orange
