It's been a while but I think this is pretty much finished.

I'm quite pleased with how it's turned out, despite some initial misgivings about the powder coat colour.

The only things I may change are to switch the bars for some silver ones and perhaps some tan wall tyres.

Oh and I also need some crank caps and some form of chainstay protector.

Re:

That looks great, I'm inspired to look at alternatives for my 1991 Pine, my frame needs repainting but I'm not convinced on trying to recreate zolatone. I think you should leave as is, it has obviously been restored with the paint finish so tan wall tyes in my mind don't add. I would leave the bars as well as they add to black elements elsewhere, seatpost, cables etc.

Just ride it...........

I agree with Daugs. The black tyres and components really make the orange and off-white frame and forks stand out. Nice one!
