If you read the comments on the original post about this bike, you know that David decided to take the conversion a bit further. It got gloss black powder coat, v-brakes and levers.
The pictures don't do the finish justice. The surfaces of the tubes actually look wet. I think it has a strong vintage "Pashley GUV'NOR" vibe to it (for a small fraction of the cost of a Pashley!)
You may notice that the True Temper Tubing decal is still there. I very carefully peeled it from the tube before taking the frame to the powdercoater, and then reapplied it with contact cement. I really just thought it was too cool to lose.
