I just got this used Keirin frame and after a looking it over with really well I have concluded that it needs to be repainted. The seller covered up some of the rust with touch up but it looks like the fork will have to go because of a horizontal crack below the crown on both legs (FUC*K) I can get another fork but the head tube and the bb has rust coming out from the lug points enough to make me suspicious and enough for the seller to paint it over. It seems like water ran down an uncovered head tube and settled in the bb and fork legs. Hopefully its not that bad but I really like this frame and want it perfect . So heres a few questions I need help with and yes I did a search and was not able to locate any specifics to my answers.
a. I found a thread about reproducing decals but the link that was given is dead (velo something)
-Who can reproduce the REMINTON decals for me or are the REMI's painted on?
-can a painter repaint the decals for me?
b. If the rust is bad on the inside of the frame, what are my options to stop and repair that rust.
c. To ensure that I sop further rust, should I powder of paint the bike.
*don't have pics but here is the auction page for it.
