:lol:
I think the colour scheme might be the only comparison!
Funnily enough I do already have a matching one. The road version, but that is another project (to follow).

Who will be doing the respray for you?


Chris Marshall in Keighley has refurbed my Dave Russell. I should be collecting it on Friday. He does a lot of work for classic collectors in 'The North'. PM me if you need any more info.

I've got a few frames needing some refinishing work, you couldn't pass on his details could you?

That about somes up the job I had done at Bob Jacksons. Lovely looking paint job but first drop and it is off in lumps. Scraped real easy. My expectations are maybe too high.

A finishing forum would be good

Nice idea regarding the finishing thread (forum maybe an overkill). Have set one up here > http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=105277 for people to post their experiences and results on. Hopefully become a useful resource...

I have just got back onto this project. I have restored both hubs, lockring etc, cranks (slight surface pitting but original so they stay), BB (superb condition), I spent a couple of hours on the headset tonight which to be honest looked in a bad way, lots of surface rust but bearing surfaces in great condition. Quite pleased so far Left unrestored/Right nearly there:

Next up is the wheel rebuild and then the frame probably next month. I've decided to have two forks painted, one being the track and the other a spare Raleigh fork from the same era, so if needed I can use a front brake. I am not drilling the original fork! btw I invested in a small Dremmel-like tool from CPS and it has been a life-saver for this already and a bloody bargain.

Hi There,

Sorry I meant CPC not CPS! cpc.farnell.co.uk
I have this:
DURATOOL - D00012 - 18V MINI DRILL KIT, MINI DRILL, KIT
£17.94
and I also bought this:
DURATOOL - D00152 - 150 PIECE ROTARY ACCESSORY KIT
£11.69.
Seems to work really well on small components and the extra kit contains everything you will need. I have been using some Autosol polish together with some of the polishing heads, works a treat!
(I am in no way connected with CPC!) :D
