Picked this bike and training device up a couple of months ago , I thought anything that has a Charter Lea crank can’t be all that bad
Well when I first saw it in the flesh I was a bit disappointed as I hadn’t noticed the awful Hammerited paintfinish that exdended to the wheel spokes as well !!
I made it rideable and did a 3 mile test ride on it and it rode quite nicely in all fairness , so I took the decision to get the frame stripped and re finished once I could find a local company that could do it for me .
Well I picked it up yesterday from the bead blasters who look to have done a great job of removing all the various coats of paint that this Dayton Roadmaster has had applied over its Amalgam tubes .
Next journey is to drop it off at local coating firm and see what colour they are offering to do it in for me .
