Hi all, I am in the process of fixing up an old 1980 raleigh sun solo from gazelle. They guy I both it off gave it a horribly messy paint job and it looks rather nasty. I plan on stripping down the entire frame, bringing it back to bare metal and going from there.
I have a nice set of wheels coming in the post hopefully Tuesday ! Can't wait
Anyways I was thinking of doin it the nice red colour the 76 Raleigh team pro came in I think it was red, well that old kind of racing red colour. I wasn't sure what the code was if anyone woul it would be great. Also if anyone has any nice colour sceam ideas that they think would be nice I'd really appropriate it. I want to try and make it look like a vintage track bike simple yet interesting to look at. The bike is already single speed also just to put that in there. I am also planning on putting a nice set of what look to be columbus oval tapered chrome forks (the seller dosnt know the type). They look super nice tho.
So if anyone has any ideas that they think would be nice it would really help, I plan on posting pics o the build as I go through it.
also feel free to post any pictures for your own spray jobs or any you think are nice, any inspiration is very welcomed thanks again !
