Zunow repaint

Just got my Zunow back from being repainted. Really want to build it up now, but going for a ride instead. I'll probably have it together tomorrow or Monday.

Was that its original paint that you duplicated?

Because as soon as I saw the title "Zunow repaint", I was thinking that most of their paint work was crazy and/or neon and it was going to be a challenge to repaint that...

No idea what the original looked like. It had already been repainted once before and was not an original color (and very tired).

They did offer some in solid red and some grey and red. I always liked the frame styling more than the paint, so finding a clean frame needing paint was just what I wanted.

Franklin frames in Newark, Ohio.

Jack did a great job. Looks much better than the photo's show. Also had him do the chrome... wasn't cheap, but reasonable for what was done. 1 decal out of place, but I actually like where it is.

Nice. I’ve never been a huge fan of the original paint on these either, but really like the frame design.

Jack does excellent work, pictures really don't do it justice. He did my Guerciotti and when he handed it to back me I thought "I haven't paid this guy enough".

Well, shut down due to lack of red brake housing. Thought I had enough... had plenty of time to order too. Oh well. Very least of my worries and silly to even bring it up.

Thought we had a what are you building/working on thread... couldn't find it.
This and the Casati need to be moved if we do.

Ohhhh

I like this one. i've always been a sucker for rear monostays.

so this is a bike you have ridden previously and just got re-done? does that skinny monostay rear make the ride a little softer in the rear?

solid, classy refresh.

i hope some box section tubies are on the menu!

Thank you. I like the monostays/wishbones as well. Also have a Bontager Road Lite.

Been looking for one of these for years. Bought it and dropped it off for repaint straight away. I'm hoping it rides well, but I'm really not too worried. I think they're just beautiful frames. Many original paint schemes aside.

Been done with tubies for ~30 years. Going to keep the Ambrosio clinchers as shown. Full DA, mostly 7410 build.

Found my red cable housing. It was in the ceiling right above my head the whole time.

Bar tape might be a little too much. Other than that, we're done. Still need to take it out for a shake down. Hopefully sometime this week.

Thanks.

Tape is a little more red than expected and thick rubber. Can always change it if it doesn't work out.
