Newbies guide to restoration

Permalink  
 

Hi guys!, i am a newbies in these area, am holding a 80s nishiki sport frame at home. It had a nice road geometry and 4130 cromoloy steel. At first i thought of just go for powder coating to revive and reused this frame, but i felt is quite a waste it had some nice lux joint and detail and i would like to return it old glory. I would like to know where can i go to refurbish the steel frame nicely? Thanks alot!

Nice frame you have. It does not seem that bad perhaps you send some close up photos. Try respray instead of powder coating.

Thanks, Sko! Attached is some close up. The scratches is beyond my personla ability to patch up so i was thinking just remove the old pain and refresh it, but i am not sure am i destroying the history of this frame.

One quick way is to get a colour corrector pen from auto shop. Cheap n fast.

Hi Crenature,

I will try to convince Mr Poon to conduct a "Restoration Workshop" for all of you out there
There are many people like you do not know where to go when you need such help
You will be taught to restore your bicycle with guidance from a train professional
Hope this helps!
