Thats great news, so its the se colour scheme as shown in the mag review but with columbus max tube for the main triangle..? I have the same one you are goina love it.
Was it Brian you spoke too?
And did they say if the original buyer chose the green and white? i only ask, as i wondered if the paint as you bought it, is original.
Also have you decided to replace the top tube, or fill and paint?
Not quite sure who I spoke to, but we had a good chat and he was slightly taken aback when I said the frame had found it's way to a car boot sale in Surrey.
Yes the green white is as originally supplied.
Not sure about the repair. It's not in a load bearing position, but from my car / motorbike experience, rot is rot. The guy at Roberts said they could patch it with no ill effects, but my natural inclination is to replace the whole tube.
What do you guys think?
Also, where do I get decals from? As if it goes to Argos (dead convenient, as they are 30 minutes drive away), then I suspect I'll need to supply the decals.
Most complicated route would be to get Roberts to do the repair, and supply me with a set of decals in black, then get Argos to ' do their thang' with the orange and black stove enamel.
