Also how many bike specific tools do you think I'll need to complete a project like this?
Thanks for your help.
I have zinn's book but haven't used it much, and I have heard that Park Tools big blue book is good.
There park tools and Sheldon Brown's web site that might help.
Tools. To strip the frame
Metric Allen wrenches
Bottom bracket tools
