Got to Duane’s a little early on Sunday, but he was waiting and had the frame ready to go. It looks just great with a fresh coat of clear over everything. The candy blue was tricky to match, but Duane did a great job and the touchups are very difficult to find. I’ll have to do a good job with the build to match the frameset.
Got the frameset home today, but I won’t get to it right away. I’m in the middle of overhauling the Cannondale ST600, so I really need to finish that one up first. it’s still in pieces, and I got the freewheel removal tool I needed and removed the freewheel. I’m sending it off to the freewheel spa for a service, and while it’s away I’ll get the wheel bearings and hubs cleaned and regreased. Then I can true the wheels and install the new tubes and tires. Once the freewheel is back that will be the wheels complete.
Sounds like progress, slow but relentless (emphasis on slow).
