A couple of rolls of brown and cream electricians tape, an exacto knife and a lot of spare time and the Pista could be looking pretty sporty too.Arby said:...I wish I was Mrs.MB1. In a very un-gay way.
Beautious paint job on that bike!
I plan on taking a week off. When I do go back to work, I'll have to get a ride from coworkers, fiance's, or rely on public transportation.MB1 said:BTW how the heck are you going to get around town while you heal????
...but she is not about to use any other saddle.fastfullback said:My question is, do you try to find a Brooks that will match? Or do you punt and go with the black saddle and tape?
i've heard of people sanding down the brooks saddle and refinishing it with a custom die... don't know where i heard that or how, but i'm sure a leather expert could work something for you.fastfullback said:My question is, do you try to find a Brooks that will match?

It is the Rivendell she has had for 40,000+ miles repainted. It was way past time to restore the beauty.bigrider said:Is this a replacement for one of her bikes or an addition to the stable?
I like the color, you don't see it on a bunch of bikes.
You can get a bike frame repainted by the Color Factory for less than $150. This was a whole lot more expensive than that even at wholesale that I paid (I work part time in a shop just for that reason).Sven said:If you don't mind me asking, approximately how much does a paint job like that cost? ...or even a basic repainting? It will obviously vary by location and condition of the bike, but generally speaking...?
