OK, for that sort of money, then get a proper paint job done, not powdercoat (one person's idea of cheap is another person's idea of expensive).

Dave Yates charges £130 for a flat colour, £140 for a metallic. This includes shotblasting of frame first. He does do a fantastic job, as can be seen here:

very nice...


of course, i'd be happy to save money where i can, i just had in mind that the spray job was always going to be the expensive part, and had expected £150ish all along


lug lining costs quite a bit, so tempted to try some of the cheaper guys, on this basis.

Please do not put tyres like that on the Holdsworth! No offense tiermat :D

That is a lovely frame. Fingers crossed you do a good job.

Is it completely stripped yet? I forsee some grief coming up. Before you remove the crank I'd soak it with penentrating oil and use a hairdryer to warm it up prior to removing with the correct extractor as mentioned by someone else.

If you get bored with the project may I have first dibs :wink:

There is plenty of choice though: Ellis Briggs,


I don't think EB have done any spraying for quite a long time. I heard they use Bob Jackson now.
