I will second that.Please please do not repaint.Keep as is.I only respray if a frame is beyond bring back,or it was repainted with a yard brush.


Sorry fella's it needs the respray badly the paint on the forks was peeling off in huge flakes and there was some pitting in the tubes and rust snakes iv'e just ordered a complete set of original decals from H Lloyds its getting a re-spray in the other colour claud butler offered which was a light blue im also going to hightlight the lugs in gold and siler metalic enamel and the headtube will be infill painted in gloss ivory white im going to repaint the faded paint on the head badge too she's going to look like a brand new bike when im finished :wink:
