The paint is flaking/peeling, and quite easily at that. So I have to treat the bike very carefully, more-so than I'd like to. Also the seat tube head lug has some deeper looking bubbling in the paint. I'd really like a sand-blast and then some proper paint to protect the frame for many more years of riding.
As an FYI, there are currently no options for repro decals for late model Zunows. I.e. the graphics where the "O" in Zunow is an explosion. All of the available repros are for the older graphics where there's a spade in the "O". So if you blast and repaint your Zunow, you won't be able to restore it completely.
