acquired a Corratec Team Bow frame and pair of Judys.
Paint was mess on the frame so decision made to build "Frankenbike II" to go with the Cindercone.
For info: was quited all sorts of money for stripping the frame and looked into everything from nut-shell blasting to acid dipping, then painting to stove enamelling - experts ranged on all sides as to which was best and which would wreck the frame's integrity.
Invoked the law of tight fisted Yorkshireman and went for the budget route.
Used POR15 Stripper - absolutely incredible - 2 coats and a gentle scrape with an old credit card, rinse with cold water and job jobbed. (£15 per can and you get a nifty little sprayer to apply it into all those hard to reach places - eyes, open cuts etc)
Pics below of frame before and frame after.
I have contacted Corratec for some tech info but nothing forthcoming re seat tube dia, bottom bracket size, etc so I can start gathering parts - anyone on here got any info?
Will keep the post updated as I beg, steal or borrow bits to build it into a budget super lightweight hill chomper (and yes it will be singlespeed - I am addicted)
Roger is verb not a noun!
Living in the Peak District - anyone live locally and fancy meeting up for rides?
