Picked this up today.
Columbus Tenax tubed Super Sport. Shimano 600 except for the brake levers. Cinelli stem, nice long 26.6 seatpost was a surprise (usually its the short ones)
Had to have it since I know its a good riding frame and it happened to be my size 55x55.
I plan on a resto-flip but I love it when a flip is my size since a non-seller can always just be ridden!
She's rough. Not rusty/dented rough but paint is rough.
The red is not half bad in most areas and the decals are all intact. There are areas on the red and white fade in that are ruined though.
The white is rough, lots of areas where it is rubbed off and then many areas were covered in brushed gloppy white nail polish.
Any ideas on salvaging this one?
Respray and fade in just the white?
Get new decals and respray the frame?
Leave it as is, do restoration, clean and see who wants it?
Is there a preferred way to deal with fixing the fade?
