I'm going to be boring and do it just like the one in the Freewheel catalogue all those years ago :roll: Tempted to leave it in its shot blasted raw form though- no paint chips when it gets used!

Thecredit must go to Andy for them- a brilliant job, probably better than new. In fact if he ever fancies a career change as a Classic Car Restorer...... :wink:

Been really looking forward to this build.

Let me know when you've had it painted and I'll pop up. Are you still going with the Porsche Dupont paint?

Hope you going to weigh the amount grease in the bb like Pace used to do :wink:

You doing it the same as this Freewheel advert?

Hi Toons, yes I'm going for the original look if not spec- it has to be a rider occasionally . Does anyone know what shade of Porker paint it is? Looks like Zermatt Silver to me. Also need a supplier of flouro paint for the stem and cranks (which will get a clear powder finish over the top for wear resistance)

anyway, how's the FUNK coming along? you been slacking? The RB Pinksters need a fix!
