Rehabs & Repairs

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

OK, so I’m happy to say this Waterford went out the door looking a bit better than when it came in:


Bob brought it in for a repaint, but upon inspection we found some… issues…

Bob decided the frame was worth saving, so I cut out the old stays and brazed in some new ones.

With that taken care of, I could proceed with paint:

I also did a frame repair on local legend Jack Madden’s Atlantis. He had an altercation with car that left the top tube bent and the head tube tweaked. Time for more surgery!

And then with paint:

I also repainted a Zancanato:

Next: Mark’s aero-tubed, 5-speed Sturmey Archer commuter! Did I mention the disc brakes and belt drive? I KNOW!
