Might be worth giving Shand a call? Don't know if they paint in house or farm it out.

There's always the bike box / Argos approach too.

Shand farms it out I think to a chappy in Falkirk :D

For paint most folks seem to take a chance on local sprayers or send frames south to Argos or Bob Jackson, Dave Yates etc. The Flying Scot site (mainly scots members) has numerous restorations detailed, but haven't seen any Scottish paint jobs. :cry:

Powder coat options a plenty though.......relatively cheap too.

I know this is dredging up an old post but I thought it might interest some of you to know that we now have a full in-house frame finishing system in place. We now do all our painting in our new facility in Livingston.

If you're looking for any repainting work get in touch.

As well as painting our own bikes, you can see the other sort of things we've been doing on the gallery section of our website.

Seems to be a favourite of the forum spanners - two posts deleted in two days...
