Cheers guys :D

Bit more progress on both frames......the Eldridge is very naked now - all the paint is stripped off frame and forks (pics to follow). I've decided paint stripping a complete bike frame is a PITA. Even with nice clean paint stripping methods.....

Pine M has a few new bits - Black Araya RM17s/DeoreDx hubs (cheers Simon!), an HG70 cassette, a short cage Deore DX rear mech and a pair of Deore DX crank arms (ready for refurb). Few more bits are on their way so hopefully this should be hitting the trails soon........

.......but will be replacing the knackered perished Rockstars before then though. They are a little flaky. ;)

Naked Eldridge.....

Just need to work out the best way to replicate the Zolatone now (might paint the forks first as that's relatively easy) ;)

Have you painted this yet? If so what did you use for the zolatone replacement? I've just got an Eldridge and am starting the build thread soon.

Just had my 91 Eldridge powder coated at Yorvick Engineering near York and I must say they've done a pretty damn fine job! A satin grey colour match to the original zolatone colour with a textured finish and I'm really pleased with how it came out. It looks a lot closer to zolatone than any of the sprays that I've come across. If I could upload some photos I would.

....then you definately have to put their details in the Official recommended or not paint-shop thread.... especially given the Zolatone context

If you can't do it send them to me via email and I'll post them up.
