i dont know if any of you remember the blue to grey to blue fade, but thats the bike. i had it repainted by a guy in walton. the frame was in bad shape, rusted, etc. he stripped it down and did alot of work on it. i got ahold of some croll stickers from one of the boys from croll. when she built up, i will take more pics.

Looks super duper good. I like the unpainted crown on the fork.

i agree htop, that frame sure looks damb good. Someone in walton painted it up ...eh ? You should send a shout out, because from here it sure seems like the person did an excellent job.


Question .... are the red ribbon inside of the panel decals or were they masked off during the paint...damb pretty if you ask me.


I've been kicking around the notion of painting my old mountain bike up, but the darn frame has so many dings in it i think it may be a worthless cause. Dings from brakelever..from crashes...and dings from stackin' em' on top of each other.


Anyway ... just wanted to let you know i was impressed. Can't wait to see pics man.

The paint looks super sweet Craig. I think that you should build it up with parts from the era. Maybe skip the tamer post though...

I am Tony of Walton who painted Craig's bike. The stripes were masked off, no vinyl tape on this one. I don't get too many bikes to paint with the decals. I was even able to locate the Reynolds tubing decal. This was not an easy job, but I love a challenge. I am always interested in painting bikes, so contact me with any questions. Tony
