    To paint of not to paint....

    So should I paint, or leave it as is for that rat bike look?



    What I find after peeling off a black sticker... dang rust. Dang uncle for just hanging it outside.

    Keep the rat rot look, throw on some flatbars and make it look like an old racer.

    Tuff decision.......
    I say go for uniformity, whatever that might be.
    Strip the paint and let the whole frame get a nice rust patina
    or flat black / Rustoleum it.

    If the paint is original don't paint it. If it's not, go for it.
