It was never going to be scrapped, at worst I was going to have a go at refinishing it myself (to teah me how to do a good job) then sticker and display.
I am going to send her up to Argos in the next few weeks, budget £250 including paint and see what happens. At very worst they strip all the old paint off for me, at best she is good to go for another 10 years!
I must admit after selling my Pace I had no clue what to buy, but the Explosif was love at 1st sight. I would only consider another high end Canadian frame in its place.
Will keep you all posted.
