I just received a 1953 Raleigh Sports with a full chaincase and it's in beautiful condition.
The only problem with it is that it has a 3' - 4' long, 1' wide gaping scratch on the full chaincase.
The rest of the bike is in its original black, which contrasts horribly with the silver underlayer.
I would like to touch this scratch up and make the bike as black as it was when first purchased; can somebody please give me advice on how to do this? I've never touched up a bike before.
Maybe recommend a brand or type of paint? I know it's taboo to mess with the original paint color, but I'm fine with it - it's not a collector's piece to me, I want to use it, not admire it from a distance.
