Hell, I am new to this form, but not new to riding. I have a very nice Bottecchia (hence my user name) circa 1989-90. (I will post a picture later, she really is a sweet ride).
While searching the net I came across the site for a classic bike restoration/paint shop in the San Diego area (maybe La Jolla?). I did not bookmark the site and now I can't find it again.
The shop in question will restore and/or re-paint your frame. They shop will also sell frames that the shop owner has restored. The shop has a nice website with pictures of past projects as well as pictures of frames for sale.
would anyone know the name of the shop or have a web address?
Also, if anyone can recommend a good (and not overly expensive) paint/restoration shop in the L.A. area (I am up in the Sta. Barbara area) that would also be helpful.
