    Rattle can recommendation

    Another vote for Montana Gold. Just finished a frame and the finish came out very well. I did three coats of acid etch primer [Upol no. 8], three coats of Montana Primer, three coats of Montana colour, three coats of Montana varnish.

    One of my best friends is turning 50 shortly (in fact we all are) so thought I would get him the bike he always wanted from his early teens but never got... a Raleigh Banana.
