Have a butcher’s at how lovely my Aunty looks in her new coat! 8)

She’s so tidy she gets to ride up front!

Here’s Mark from Powder & Paint, top lad, real attention to detail and knows exactly how to treat rare/much loved bike frames.
Aunty couldn’t have been in better hands, first a dip in a chemical stripper, then a fine glass and water vapour blast, then she was baked dry in the oven overnight to dispel all moisture. First a coat of white, then the fluorescent red and finally a clear coat to make it shiny!

2.2kg on the bathroom digital scales, not sure if that’s good or not?

I did try it on a some digital scales I have that measure to the gram, but they top out at 2kg....

Cheers, I tried photographing Aunty under luminous/UV lamps with mixed results, it didn’t matter what I did, the photos just can’t capture how awesome the finish is.
Might bring a lamp to Mountain Mayhem to show off the bright bikes at night... 8)
