Can anybody recommend a local frame re-sprayer / alteration outfit?
I’ve got a circa 1985, Reynolds 653 frame I’d like to re-build with some of the old kit I’ve accumulated over the years.
All suggestions appreciated.

I’ve heard of a company in Bury called Atlantic Boulevard that will do what you want. I’ve had no personal experience of the company however.JedParticipant14 October 2013 at 14:38Post count: 191

I had a frame repair on my winter bike earlier this year at Atlantic Boulevard. Neil, the proprietor, was very helpful and carried out a satisfactory job, at a reasonable cost. If I can be of any help, please give me a telephone call 07950027958, the premises are only about 4 miles from my home address. Kind regards.Martin WParticipant17 October 2013 at 16:29Post count: 1

I travel to Cheshire on a regular basis from home and if you chose Atlantic Boulevard, I would be more than happy to act as courier for your frame, at zero cost to yourself. I have a large area in my car that would accommodate and safely transport your frame to and from the said destination. Kind regards. VinceAlan KempParticipant21 October 2013 at 16:17Post count: 91
£260 for a lick of paint and transfers ? You could have a week half board at the Pollensa Park in Puerto Pollensa , Majorca for about £20 more ! ( Some of us are going in March 2014 !)
Or for about just double the cost of respray etc you could get a brand new alloy race frame . ( including paint )
Personally I would find somewhere cheaper or strip the frame down, hook it onto your clothes line and respray it yourself with a can in the colours of your choice ! If you want hoops on the down tube then use insulation tape for masking . In previous times a paint brush would have been used .
I never had the same paint job for more than a few weeks during my earlier cash strapped youth .
Hope this information has been of some help .Do not hesitate to contact me for more info .
