You want one of these
...the LX kit is nice too, have some for my new Wot
; I'd forgotten just how
nice it was
Good suggestion that! I bought one and it turned up this morning - will have a bash at fitting it later. LX kit is lovely - especially in NOS condition, seems a shame to start using it really.......
As with my other Marins I drew up some artworks earlier in the week and got my mate to lasercut a couple of sets (for no charge bless 'im). The loose plan is to put one set on for the time being and then eventually as funds allow, I'll start tackling the rust spots and dents on the frame, probably on a tube-by-tube basis - I really don't want to strip the whole frame and lose the harder-to-replicate marin and tange decals on the downtube.
One of the memories I have of owning my BV back in '94 was trying to make replacement decals out of trim tape using a stanley knife. Artwork package and laser cutting was sooo much easier....!
