Nope, no powder coating but I am still thinking of it
She's fine now, I have some photo's I'll post, She's used as my get to and from work bike nice 30miles round trip, although I'll still chunky bugger.
There's a couple of perople I need to thank in getting her road worthy, they are RAFBIKES / JUSTBACKDATED and especially CHARLIEBOY28 whom without his infinate patience and liberal access to bits in his shed it wouldn't have been possible.
As for the bike, the frame is ok still needs a professional to have a go as after 2 months of hand wirebrushing polishing I'd had enough
Most of the bits that were on it when received still are but new/added bits include 739 brakeset/gearset, new middleburn chainrings and a couple of better nick mavic wheels and some conti hybrid tyres.
Still got the orginal forks but I have put some PACE RC36 on her for day to day.
I think since she became roadworthy she has had around 2.5-3000 miles done on her and apart from punctures and a collapsed rear wheel (don't ask) haven't had to do much.
I think I really want the frame professional polishing and laquering with DEC's but unfortunately money is to tight for that at the moment. OI would also love another Richey seat(still got the original that came with her in 95) as for some reason I can't handle new seats or I just haven't found a good/comfy one yet.
One of the pluses doing her up is I now know more about fixing,maintaing a bike than I ever did when I was younger. If anyone has any questions about th eprocess please feel free to ask.
Here's a quick photo will post more in the future.
