Wow, for e10 you can't complain, eh?
Maybe build it up as a single speed before you respray it to see if you like the ride.
If you're thinking of selling it on later, I would leave the paint as it is. tweedehands.be (the Belgian equivalent
of ebay) is full of abandoned and semi-abandoned fixed gear projects that nobody wants to buy because they've been resprayed.
Most people seem to prefer to buy an old frame with original paint.
I think you could be right John. I will certainly consider to leave the old paint as it is. Unfortunatly however it is a little bit fozzy, because some has been spraying something else in the neighbourhood of the bike in the past. It is covered with a slight little bit of grey underlayment paint.
I will build up the bike, and it will be sold afterwards. The pleasure of building is much more fun than riding it.
So I think I will be make it as it was, inxluding light etc.
Thanks for your response.
