Hopefully you’ll find a opinion from another pace owner helpful but …..You may get that sort of figure if you split and list via eBay but as a whole bike you will struggle to break £1k on here.
Usually for that sort of spec you’d get around 700-1000. Up at £1500 it would need to be dripping in...
Had a bit of time on it today. It’s not perfect as some scratches are a little too deep to remove but it’s 90% I’d say. Once decals are fitted and components on it would hide most imperfections.
Currently on P800 grade so needs to go higher before polishing can commence
Rivnuts removed with a little advice from Dan Chambers (cheers)
Started the long process of trying to remove all scrapes with wet/dry. Had to go slightly rougher than I’d hoped but it should clean up mostly. It’ll be a few sessions working through the grades before it can be polished.
So the spinning one is now out. Simple job actually carefully using a hacksaw whilst pulling away from frame
So now the issue of the other 3. Downtube will be easy but yes the bottom one on the seattube is going to be awkward
Doesn’t seem enough room for a hacksaw down the back unfortunately.
My main issue is I can’t see how you can get a straight line at the bottom seat tube rivnut with the drill.
I’ve messaged Dan Chambers to see if he will take the job on to remove them.
Yes that’s a similair method to the online ones.
Question is how do you remove a spinning rivnut with bolt still in place? Hacksaw?
The others I assume simply drill them out ? If a drill fits in the space
Bumping this back up as I ended up keeping the 97 LE as Ball burnished but I’ve just got another 97 which seems to be crack/dent/deep scratch free.
Plan is to clean it up and decide if it’s good enough to anodise green.
Has anyone removed bottle bosses before ? And put some back in?
