After building up a lot of Klein's, a Mantis Flying V, McMahon, Merlin, Cannondale SM700 it is now time to show you something else. A steel bike. Steel is real! ;-)

When I got it the frame was in medium condition. Lot of scratches and little rust and 1 dent.
I decided to ship the frame to Gerrit. He told me he could save the original paint and only paint the scratches after got rid of the rust. So we did. He got is and after a couple of mounths he told me he could not match the silver and purple color. It was too difficult. So the only thing he did was getting rid of the rust and sealed the scratcht area's. Conserved!

Question 1: Who nows more about the 2 colors. Is it matchable?
Question 2: Is it possible to get out the dent?

Nice one! I have to get a Chance one day, allthough that will be an early '80's.
What are the plans with it?

silver is a very difficult colour to repair,...but nice lot you got there. will be a nice bike once the build up is done.
the silver purple anniversary is hard to find matching parts. but Syncros is a save way for a nice bike.
