I have spent way too much restoring certain frames, if it were mine I would find someone, like Argos, who could reproduce if not the original paint, then enough of it to pay tribute.

Bob Jackson can respray with hand done double box lining to original red very reasonably. I can get the decals H Lloyds but have to get them individually as it has the Gothic downtube and head tube but then the Mondrian style on the downtube. They also now stock the right size world championship bands which I am told were previously really hard to find.
What I may do is build it with all the nice stuff and then ride it for the summer and then relook at painting it. I can't see it getting much worse in that time.

Glad to see it out and about. For me when a frame gets that bad I'd paint it as the man said "If it needs painting...". Its still going to be a Taylor and it's not uncommon for frames of that age to be repainted.
