Who would people recomend for respraying a bike? I want a good job rather than cheap. It's for this '87 SBDU to be painted in the Panasonic scheme. Needs the fork bridge filled where a previous custodian took a drill to it...

Argos without a doubt
Bob Jackson’s the other option
Then Mercian or Brian Rourke

Bob Jackson's attention to detail wasn't the best on my Vigorelli and Donald is a bell end so I'll give them a miss. When I rang Argos this morning it seemed like they had done the paint scheme before as he just rolled off the process and what parts are decaled and what is painted. The only thing that took me back a bit was the price at £355.

Decisions.

The lady finishing frames for universal cycles seems to be getting a good rep.

I’ve used Argos lots of times for both simple and complex refurbs (inc a Pinarello Montello that needed chrome) and I can recommend them. But they are not cheap.
