    Hi,
    My forum name is Miyata Bob and I'm looking for a frame painter that restores frames to original colors w/decals. I have E-mailed two but neither bothered to respond to my queries .
    Cyclart and Joes Bicycle painting who I was told do good work but they must be toooooo busy to respond.
    Does anyone here have any recommendations?

    Thanks,
    Bob
    BTW My bikes are a Miyata 1000 Tourer, A Waterford 1700 Singlespeed,
    a Tanaka (Innerlight) Race and a "92"Bridgestone XO-1 (which I'm thinking of getting repainted).
    Actually the Innerlight bike is my favorite ride but I thought it would sound sanctimonious
    calling myself Inner-light Bob...:^)

    Try Airglow. I'm going to send mine to them. Every time I've emailed them I've got a response from Patti in a matter of hours. Seemed really helpful, knowledgeable too.

    why dont you get a cool airbrush job or something?
    it would probably cost less.

    i saw a bright pink Santa Cruz V-10 once, maybe you could do that :D :p ;) !

    I'll second that, Patti has been more than helpfull and always answers promptly, they're going to do my (almost new) Cannondale Road Bike in a British Theme....Red/white and blue, union Jacks etc...

    If the Chopper Blokes can do it, why can't we?

    They said they're going to take pics and put it up on their site...airglow.com
