Any ideas who can do this? I've asked Bob Jackson and Atlantic Boulevard but unfortunately no luck. Ideally looking to repsray my old Merckx frame in the late nineties Domo Farm Frites livery but as suspected neither of the two mentioned above have correct transfers or access to the masking system.

Is the factory in Meise still there? Perhaps they could help? But I'm sure I'd read on RBR the Merckx brand was to be sold on?

Incidentally, I already had this colour scheme in mind before the chap in the classifieds section posted his old MXL in the same Domo Farm Frites livery :)

In Belgium there is Frank Hoste cycles, run by the former TDF green jersey winner.

Maybe they can help you? I'd imagine they would at least have some interest in this project.

Their site is in Dutch but you could send them an email - they probably have someone there who speaks perfect English and they were quite quick at getting back to me.

Thanks. I've had a quick scan of the site. It could be just the outfit I"m looking for.

Argos Cycles in Bristol, don't think there is much they can't do!

Might be worth a call to C & G Finishes in Liverpool, 0151 734 3088. They used to do Harry Quinn's frames and many others so they know the trade inside out.

Or try Jason Rourke at Rourke Cycles, http://www.rourke.biz/renovations_restorations.shtml
I would think he could do it or will definitely know a man who can :)

It won't be cheap.
