Took delivery today on a 1973 coffee brown Raleigh Twenty frame and fork, seatpost (sans saddle clamp), and stem. I'm gathering parts, but I'm probably going to powder-coat it first. I have some questions about that and would appreciate any advice.
1. I've got a Brooks B17 in "British Racing Green" to put on it. I'm not very good at color-matching or design. What color would you choose for the frame given this choice of saddle?* Links to examples would be much appreciated.
2. What would you use to grind extraneous metal off the frame? I'm thinking of the chainguard hanger, and then, there's quite a bit of weld material here and there that doesn't seem to be serving any purpose. And I'm not talking the welds joining the tubes, I'm talking about weld material splattered here and there on the tubes.
Anyway, thanks for any advice.
