I think I would agree with Carl.

I hope to get Chas to make the matching stem and respray the frame if I can. Makes complete sense for him to do it seeing he made the original frame.


Roberts no longer spray in house, they told me they now send it out.

You're all right about time though, I'd not thought about that. XX weeks for the repair and the same again for the paint.

Nice to know these guys have a full order book though. That says something about the work they are producing.

Spectrum have done there paint for a very long time.

Argos took 6-7 months and in the past Roberts the same.

The trouble is good quality craftmanship is still in high demand.

Cheers mate, seemed appropriate at this moment in time seeing I was saving it till I finished the Centaur!

Unfortunately the twins haven't been on top form since I finished it so I haven't had a chance to get out there and get it muddy, hopefully it won't be long! Just keeping my fingers crossed it feels like it did the first time round! :wink:
