The Head Badge on this Raleigh is wafer thin. It came up great with some metal polish. These are the brakes that came on the bike Dura Ace 7400. I took them off soon after and replaced them with more modern duel pivot Shimano 105.

That looks superb.

I am looking to get a Panasonic respray. If you don't mind me asking, how much was it and were decals included? I realise the price will only be a guide as you had pump peg and bottle bosses, but I can take that into account.

Cheers
Matt

Thanks for all the comments.

It cost £200 incl VAT for respray
Around £75 for the removal of the bits and pieces plus the braze ons

I supplied the decals, Argos told me they can have them printed if you want them to do that.

Regards,

Pat

Sorry, another question. Where did you get the bar tape?

I think £200 for the respray from Argos is worth every penny. Looks great.

That is indeed a good price, Mercian quoted £370 to do the same work :roll:
