i have an old Raleigh mountain bike frame that i have converted into a single speed with 700c tires and drop down handlebars. the frame and fork are in good condition and none of the paint has fallen off. I really want to repaint it with a candy apple red glossy finish with white handlebar tape and some white pinstripes. i can handle paint very well so my real question is do i have to sand down the paint job and repaint it with primer or can i go ahead and paint the bike with primer and then a white coat and then a red coat?
thanks for any help. im new to this. just had a sweet idea!
