Hello, i'm new to this forum.I am new to pedal bikes as i usually restore motorbikes but its getting too expensive.
I needed a slightly cheaper hobby so decided i would look at a pedal bike.
Now i have just bought a 1970's Raleigh medale off ebay for £35.
This is the bike i had when i was about 13 yrs old and would like to restore it best i can.
I will be asking a lot of questions i imagine over the coming year.
My first question being can i get original decals and who can repaint frames to original colours and at what cost?
Will post picture when i take delivery of the bike in the next few days.

Thanks in advance of any advice. Dave H.

Welcome!

You think Motorbikes can be expensive :lol: :wink: Well you did say slightly cheaper...

Decals may be available from a forum member Gil_m, he may have them on file, he may not. Top quality work they are too

Paintjobs, Argos Racing Cycles, frame & forks from £125 for a top notch job.

Also Bob Jackson http://www.bobjacksoncycles.co.uk/resprays_pl.php

The above companies may also be able to supply decals (I'm not 100% sure on that though)
