Lovely lovely bike!!!
Yes, great care and thought is needed in this restoration, can easily go pear shaped.

That's a lovely frame,looks like the Russian team pursuit bikes from the eighties. Best of luck with the build,it's going to be interesting. I'd avoid powder coat and try to get it resprayed by a good frame builder like Mercian who can supply the decals.

Very good point, the Mavic decals I used recently on my Vitus came with a warning that they wouldn't stick well to powder coated finishes

Very special just read the whole thread. Take care with this, at least there aren't as many parts to source for a track bike, it would be great to see the spec you are aiming for so we can keep an eye out for you. those Campag holed front discs are something else. I have a Pair of Mavic 3 G's that I use for road and track but those Campag ones are something else! I use a rear like the one above, very noisy! Keep up the good work

I'd use Bob Jackson or Argos with regards to paint spraying, Mercian paint is very fragile & chips easily.

Hello all,

I've been pretty quiet on the build front lately with a trip to Cornwall. However I have a package waiting for me when I get back home though. I have sourced original and correct 3ttt Moscow bars like the ones seen in many photos of the Rossin!

I will take lots of photos when I open the package and post them on here asap! Very excited!!!

I have been advised by many people about gettin the bike painted by Mercian. They say they do the same pearlescent finish as the original paintwork so I'm very interested in that. I didn't know that they provided decals though. I will have to ask as I don't think they're keen to use other peoples decals with their process.

Many thanks for everyone's advice so far. Stay tuned for handlebar photos!

Cheers,
Matt

Re decals - if Mercian don't have suitable ones - contact Geoff Softly in Australia - http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Cyclomondo?_rdc=1

he will get you sorted very easily. Don't forget to consider getting the autograph made up!!!

Pics, pics, WE WANT PICS!!!
