    Evenin all,

    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.

    Cheers, Chris

    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.

    Hi Jed,

    Apologies for not acknowledging your suggestion… I sent them an enquiry and I was intending to post with their response.

    I’ll post it, when / if I get a reply!

    Hello Chris

    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.

    Hello Chris

    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. Vince

    £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 .

    Alan
