Rossin frame

Just panicked and bought this off of the bay. Does it look normal to everyone,, besides the repaint.

I don't think so, I noticed that too. But it does have the other markings that look legit.

Double bottle mounts and brazed on FD mount does not seem to go with the brazed on cable guides on top of the BB.
Looks like the frame got some brazed on updates when it was re-painted.....
The smooth sloped crowned fork kinda confuses me though, could it be an update/replacement??

+1 Based the likely new show chrome and guality of the repaint it is fairly likely some of the brazons where done also.

What'd you pay for it? Because that's what it's worth.

The paint and chrome actually look pretty good why would you want to repaint?

Get cutesy with colors. Black with gold hubs and such. Or who knows. Something to play with in the future. A bike that should ride nice that I don't have to worry about ruining continuity.

I think the blue with just stock bruished silver naked alloy component wise and white excerories bar wrap seat with red cables would look great on the blue frame. Chessy red,white, blue and chrome an American classic.
