So onwards towards the completed bike...I took Midlife's info on 'flam' paints and after a tip-off regarding a local shop who mix paints for aerosol use I decided on Amaranth - purple that looks blue(ish) in the sunshine. 2 coats, decals applied and 2 coats of lacquer - easy. Well, not really - the lacquer is a bit uneven in places and all those tiny dints & dings show up much more than when it was bare metal. But all in all for a first attempt it's a very solid attempt and the colour is superb.

The brakes are pretty difficult to set up as the braze on bolts hold the tension spring and therefore alignment is limited - to this end the calipers aren't quite sitting correctly and pressure isn't applied quite equally via both brakepads. All in all though, I'm pretty happy with how this turned out even though it wasn't what I had planned when I originally bought the bike. However, I'm delighted to add a Quinn to the stable and I've learnt a lot and thoroughly enjoyed this project.
Hope you like the final result
