Sorry to bump an old thread, Forgot to update you all...
Its been on its maiden voyage, Awesome ride!
Covered it's 11miles up and down hills perfectly.
Also used it to pop into town/cycle path/where-ever on sunny days off
Also have bought some toe clips for it, take a bit of getting used to but I much prefer riding with them.
Im going to be getting it repainted over the summer, But nowhere local that Ive found is willing to paint it for me properly in a booth....(well, none for sensible money... I had one offer of £125...
Last time I painted a bike with rattle cans the tiniest spec of grit I rode through was chipping straight into the paint so am put off going through all that effort again fro a rubbish paint job full of chips...
Brings me onto my main question:::
What do people think the bike is worth currently? (based on the pics) and what would it be worth after a new paint job?
Just wondering if its worth me paying the *gulp* £125 to have it looking great and then paying my mate to cut me replica vinyls for the decals....
Or if the bike as it is is worth hardly anything, I may just rub it down to get rid of the tiny surface specs of rust and paint it with something that will not chip as easy (Krylon/rustoleum or something) The downside is it will look like cr@p
... but the plus side is the rust specs wont get worse.
So people. What is it worth? And what would you do?
