    Repaint - It's done!

    And now I must wait patiently while it hangs in my laundry room, for the paint to cure. There's a bit of bleed-under on the head tube masking which I'm going to hide by outlining the headlugs, probably in blue (always have a backup plan!).

    Slick! The colors do justice to its japanese heritage. It's amazing what new paint does for a bike. What's the plan for the headtube?

    Nice rattle can job, I just finished painting my old peugeot frame orange and brown. I probably should have used that kind of stripper, powerful stuff! Mine wasn't quite as effective but I did get off most of the paint, I'll have pics of my paint job up soon.
