Going to paint it, haven't decided the color yet but I'll probably pinstripe the lugset.

I would have put it a little differently, but I agree.
There are enough crap frames out there to be painted and that isn't one of them.
The paint looks good as is....why mess with it?

I appreciate that. The original paint was laid on very thin & there are a lot of chips & exposed metal so I have to paint it.

right now it looks like a classic bike that gets ridden and has a real story behind it. painting it will make it look like an iro.

Still need to get some canti breaks on there. A black b17 eventually. Also need to get the steerer cut down.

I want to get drops or bullhorns, but currently it is setup very comfortably.

Tell ya what, I'll trade you my old Motobecane and Novara for that bike.
They're both lugged and both need paint jobs.

Everyone loves a two for one sale.
