I might do it myself. The fluro paints aren't used much now so It's hard to get it done in a shop.
Can someone tell me what size bb I need for this frame? Ta.

No. I couldn't get it out. I took it to Bob Jacksons and they got some heat on it and it came out in one piece. The heat took the paint off the seat tube so I'm now getting the rest it off ready for a new paint job.

Should keep me busy for a couple of weeks.

LX BB's are fine; though I usually try and get an old UN72 if I can...

Got stuck in on removing the paint this weekend and the frame is done. A couple of small dings to fill and then it will be ready for a final rub down and paint prep'.

The steel tubes look good, no rot, so worth the effort to get it looking good. I'll get the forks done next week and then wait for the weather to warm up a bit before painting.
