    My new (old) Randonee

    I picked up a 2004 Randonee off craigslist. I paid 200$ for everything minus the wheels, cranks and derailleurs. I have enough spare parts to build it into a nice touring rig. I am taking the frame to get powder coated this week. Attached is a picture with the paint removed. I will post pictures when I'm finished.

    Sounds like a fun project. I'm looking forward to the pictures - especially after powder coating. That's something I'd like to try on an old bike someday.

    I am aiming to have it painted with a dark red, or dark green. The powder coating company said if they had the paint, they would do it for $10-30. If I had them order the paint however, it would cost $200+. Since this will be my third bike, I am trying to keep cost down as much as possible, we'll see what happens.

    Choose whatever color to your liking Its a touring bike, hehe, not a show dog
    30$ is nothing. really nothing. I wish I was able to find here in Ireland a deal like this.

    Looking forward to see the project progressing.

    Cheers,

    How about bare metal with clearcoat? Simulated brushed aluminum? Clearcoat on top of comic book pages?
