Ah yes, must admit I didn't look that closely, would have had a much better look at those larger pics if I was intending to dip my hand in my pocket. But seeing as said pocket is now empty I moved quickly on!
How much will the respray cost at Argos if you don't mind me asking? I have a 653 Raleigh which is showing it's age, and like you am thinking of Casto-ing it up!
Would love the one in the thread, but not paying that much to shell out the same again getting it right!
My respray is costing £238 which includes a few extras, namely -
Add braze on hanger for front derailleur
Tidy up bottle bosses (they are rivet in types not brazed on and they spin in the holes
Fit new Campy headset (supplied by me)
Remove and refit head badge
Remove and refit BB cable guide
Apply decals (supplied by me)
I am having the decals lacquered over after fitting, I got them from Greg at Cyclomondo http://www.cyclomondo.net/page20.htm
including the foil Dynatech sticker. I would say that having bought from Greg and a set from Ebay that the Ebay ones are close but nowhere near as good as Greg's. My Dyna Tech gets painted on March 16th and I can't wait to get it home so I can bolt on the Deltas and all the C Record bling that I have bought over the last 3 months...
