I was overwhelmed to have recieved this particular bike as a gift for christmas, the problem for me started when i assembled it after opening the box.
The trouble with it, was the colour, it was the exact model i had searched for, for a very long time, and this was the exact model used by Overburys in there advertising, when trying to compete with Far east imports.
For this Reason alone, i wanted to keep the original colours, "but" it just looked tatty and well.... a little "EL CHEAPO" to be honest.
After searching for other examples, i did think seriously about a colour change, and to be fair this pondering on my part slowed up the refinish-rebuild process for me.
But as i say, after a lot of thought and consideration, and some gentle persuasion by Miss Money Penny and Kurtis and Charlotte, i did decide to keep the paint Original colours, and after all the heartache over this decision i think
i have made the right choice.
The Fresh paint has really brightened it up, and although typically a late 80"s colour scheme, i feel its come up pretty well.
