It cost £280 which is alot of money really and their was a gap of about a couple of months from getting the bike to then getting in a car to Argos just to save some dosh.I know you could go to a local powder coat company but wanted a proper job done and decals really.
I must admit i spent some time on deciding either to send it back to Chas Roberts or do a 45 minute drive to Argos and considering some of the negative feedback Argos has had on here i was abit unsure.
What i really wanted to do was take it in by hand and acually speek to someone rather than put it in a box and ship it to London (i didnt fancy the drive).Roberts wanted the same money but the shipping there and back was another £50 or so.
I couldnt keep my smile off my face when i saw the frame painted like new and now i feel the price was well worth the money and the guys at Argos are top notch.
As an alternative in future, Bob Jacksons at Leeds would be around half that price, for as good if not better job of Enamelling it, in any colour/combo you want. They did all the recent Orange Clockwork re issues and do some stunning two tone flip flop enamels for not much more.
They don't blast the frame either, but strip by hand with scrapers and paint solvents.
They can also repair/modify/attach braze ons at the same time for little money.
turnaround is a fair bit quicker too, depnding upon the time of year.
Live the dream-Ride on!
