I've stripped them down
And I've started stripping the old paint off.
The guy who had it originally painted it red, but underneath, where he didn't strip it back properly is a gorgeous gold colour which I think I'll try to replicate. Got most of the paint off the main tubes now, just need to do the seat and chain stays and the little bits I've missed. The frame seems pretty solid. There is some surface rust but it seems to be coming off with wet and dry.
I need an old fashioned bottom bracket fixed cup remover to get this off
I've entered the Eroica now, so I do need to get one of them finished.
