i am very lucky for getting such a great restoration of my frame. Thank you so much to the lord StarTrek. The explosif project is intended to be close to the original one in the catalogue, and i promise to show pics in retobike. The project will be dedicated to StarTrek.

Thanks mate.
Graciñas meu

That is a lovely job, well done! Looking forward to seeing it built up now.

:oops: I have to say, all the bikes in the background make me very jealous, sorry.

Because its far more fun and rewarding then getting someone to dunk it in a vat of acid and then coat it in plastic! I love what this guy is doing! If the pound wasn't so crap at the moment i'd send one of my frames over to Spain for some StarTrek loving! Ein?

True, but I reset handmade, not industrially.
In this case the man is ahead of industrial processes, and a classic frame deserves a good treatment in his body. :D
Thanks OrangeRetro. :oops:

Darn Tootin'. Never, and I Mean NEVER, second guess StarTREK. He may be nuts, but the end always seems to justify the means! 8) :D

i have received the frame today, it's amazing, an incredible finished, great paint work and a beautiful shine. The colour is exactly as the original one.

I prefer the handmade work, it is made with more illusion, and seeing the results, i choose this method.

Now begins the assembly project: rs mag 21, classic xt front mech, sugino, top mount, nos xt cantilevers, flite titanium, o-beam seatpost, velocity stem, bontrager titec ti handlebar,....
