Is the green paint underneath the original? It would be so sweet to clean off the black.

Frame repair(s) needed?

Go Roy Go!!!

Yes, the frame has some issues.
That is the original green under the black.
Original paint is in rough shape as well.
Nothing nice about this one other than what it is.
I might try and take some of the black off.
But by the time all the repairs are done
it will be needing a repaint. Considering going with
original colour. No decisions yet.

No update on frame repairs yet.
But no news is good news in this case. :D

I think it is an 18.5" frame. Not too big. Prefect for me.
Repair update as of today. Bottom bracket is out.
