okay race fans
today i bought a 52 year old bike that only had one owner
1956 Raleigh Robin Hood , that i named "Marian"
perfectly preserved all the way down to all the marvelous decorations
and she has a LOT.
I am terrified that when i go to wash it and in the future the decals will flake off...
and we KNOW that the do.
one person told me to protect them with clear nail polish.
What is the general consensus? i'd rather have them protected than damaged because i didn't do anything.
i am not planning on selling this bike.
