I personally would not be happy with a £30 powder coat by some garden gate powder coat bob a job specialist,A bike like this needs to be sent to proper bike restorer/paint sprayers and the frame(just the frame the rest is easy stuff)lovingly repainted,as in my opinion the frame does need it,looking at the close up pictures,I personally would not be happy with a quick Tcut an polish no matter wether the bike cost £5 or £5000,unfortunately I carnt spray frames to the standard of Mercian,Argos,Jonrock so I would much prefer to pay them good money to know its a propa job that will last the next 30years.
Pm sent with a real offer.
PMSL..........Who said anything about a garden gate powdercoater....
I was talking about a Specialist powdercoater, and yes it would be flawless and last 30 years, if you get stuck i can send you examples of work on collectable bicycle frames if you wish.
And to be frank there is NOTHING in those pictures that would give any cause for concern at all. Take it from someone who knows.
As for a single colour paintjob as you have mentioned above, the figure i quoted in my previous post was Argos et al. And yes again i can forward examples.
You sure you arent simply trying to justify a Cheeky offer, Because thats sadly how it seems to me.
