Man, I love that color. That will look stunning built up. Who did the paint?

There is a late fifties Super Corsa with a Brian Baylis paintjob in that color that I have seen in pictures. It is a beautiful bike.

So you replaced the bar end shifters. Was it this one that had very poor wrapping when it was sent to you?
Plans for it?
It's 58.5 c-t. The stem is some later 3ttt job with an allen key.It is that same bike ,that picture was taken while i was still tearing it down, the bar end was on my bench. It will go back on.

As far as my plans go, I am going to give it a sympathetic refurbishment, i.e. no paint and keep as many parts as I think are original. Then I'll keep it till my plans change. I am in the middle of a house renovation right now so nothing is happening quickly.
