This was one of the bikes I always wanted when I was at uni. So when this one came up cheaply on ebay I couldn't resist.
I didn't like the red with silver fleck paint so decided polished was the look I'd like to go for.
I forgot to take photos before I started stripping it!
Heres the paint removal
Everyone needs a Ruth to help out!
And polished a little bit of it to give me an idea of how it will look
I think I can see my taste in bike frame shape goes through the years!
I must say I'm enjoying collecting bits for it!
