Why the surprise at powder coating? It may look in good shape from the pictures but the original finish was chipped and scratched and needed redoing. Not a big fan of the original silver colour and in homage to my Raleigh Mirage (which is gone but not forgotten) I decided to go with gloss white. I've got the bike part built and I think it looks pretty good. Will get some more pictures posted this weekend.

Cheers,

Col

Aye the paint was kinda scuzzy up close with a few rusty spots and damage to the lacquer. Plus it was only 60 notes for the powder coating :D .

I had my Orange 02 done in White Powdercoat.
Did the £60 include shot/bead blasting?

Aye, blasting and powder coat all for £60. :D Just needed a bit of sanding at the seat tube, headtube and bottom bracket once I got it back.

Nice one :D
I'd love a C16, but realistically I can't warrent one!
I have a '98 orange 02 & a '97 P7 (which I've just finished.) PLUS a '94 Kona Lavadome frame already stripped & ready to build... AND a '84 Dawes Galaxy Tourer, which I won off ebay for £70 complete :D OH yeah, I almost forgot.. I have a GT Timberline Frame/Fork combo also turning up sometime next week :D Damn this Retrobike stuff... I love it!

ps love the White that you've had the bike painted in.. Will look forward to the progress :lol:

Haha, this retrobike stuff does tend to get out of hand somewhat. That's quite a collection you've got there. I'll add some further updates tomorrow now that I've got the bike part assembled.
