This number is definitely ready for the streets and give quite a face lift to the rest of the motorcycle roaster. In direct sunlight – it presents itself with a slight shimmer that is integrated into the base-coats, and creates a deep galaxy effect within the clear coats.

With this half restore we’ll take it down to metal and build her back up to a fresh satin blue coating. Decals and detail treatments will be done off site
From the decal applications to the metallic gold pin striping – this frameset looks better than the original (from what I’ve seen in the images). The amount of research and attention to detail paid off in the end. Hopefully I’ll be getting some images of this frameset at built up.
The first pass of pin-stripping is showing great potential. These decals were the original set from 1970, so difficulty of placing them were quite high. There is a lot more prep work to go but you can get an idea what the finalized frameset will look like.
The decals along with the detail treatments in yellow over the candy red look amazing! A few coats of clear to protect all this awesomeness – we’ll be in business to build her up.
This bike was repaired from an intense crash – bending the top and down tube along with the fork. Now we have a fully repaired frameset (not exactly ike the original) but close enough to get the point across
images of the actual frameset coming soonish…
This number is just about done with its final effect package and clear sealers; now it’s time for the the detail treatments and decal placements
The matte coatings on the Colnago World Cup creates a classic feeling – removing the existing branding is always a great choice. Nothing can match the art of minimalistic decal placements.
With this frameset, we’ll be toning this frameset down and giving more of classic/simplistic look. Changing the color to deep olive green with a satin finish.
This Benotto classic restoration came out beautiful; the correct way to restore a frameset like this one
After multiple stages of achieving the ‘Lexus White’ – we are now finalizing the stages. I’ll be sure to get some sun images (once the sun comes out).
This Rb-1 is looking glossier and blacker than ever. This successful restoration is near spot on to the original, with the exception of removing some additional accent decals
