Got this Orange E3 frame hanging around, um'd and Ah'd weather to paint it, polish it or leave it as is ?

Would look great polished but my last one was polished, would also look great done orange/white to match my Clockwork 8)

Or would look pretty cool battleship grey whith some anodised trinkets thrown at it.

Thing is the original decals are still pretty good and apparently these are rare to find with the original decals intact, though overall the frame is presentable but generally pretty tired looking.

Could you do a polish paint fade combo?

It's no for sale anyway :lol: , still have my last one but frame has been converted to single speed (no stops or hanger), also has a tiny crack on the rear of the headtube :cry: , rode with it with the crack for a year though and it never got worse.

Very nice frames though, very light.
