Looks like Dave Yates did a great job Gio, and the decals came out great - not long till you have her back eh?



How did they remove the dents in the tubes? Replace tubes? Fill or pull out? Just I have a rare frame with a couple of minor dings, that need sorting.

Thanks :)

Because of the size of them, once the frame was blasted, he was able to fill the dents with brass and then file and smooth off. Luckily they weren't large enough to need new tubes. That would have been expensive!

Send Dave a quick email with some pics and he'll be able to give you a quote. The work is exceptional and very quick.

A very belated update the Centaur :oops:

I managed to find the original Reynolds handlebar so had it repainted and redrew the decals and had them printed. I also managed to find (not sure how) a NOS set of Supercross Baja tyres, so popped them on.

I also took some pictures of both the Centaur and Classic together. Enjoy :D

Thank you.

One of them was :) I have stored it for about two years waiting to find another. Eventually one turned up :)
