A really nice early 90's Rourke frame respray. The badges and text are decals which have been clear coated over.
All other details have been painted.
Juliun knew exactly how he wanted his frame to look and sent me this design through to work from.
The original design was a little dated and the paint had been damaged due to a corroded seat post.
A couple of images from the Field Cycles
stand at Bespoked Bristol.
The latest Field cycles
frame is a disc brake equipped cyclocross frame.
Even the Enve logo has received the all paint treatment.
Harry from Field Cycles
built me a road frame, it is the first time that I have had a bespoke build and it feels great to ride.
It has been constructed with Reynolds 853 tubing except for the Columbus chain stays, making it very comfortable but still really lively.
All details were painted.
Even the Reynolds 853 logo was painted.
It is nice not needing to have a separate seat post as it can be a problem area for steel frames with all the dirt and water flying off the back wheel and down the seat tube.
The investment cast bronze head badge sets off the front end a treat.
Painting the bars and stem really adds to that bespoke feel.
Graham chose fluorescent paint to liven up his much loved Claude Butler.
It was in a bit of a sorry state so it needed fully stripped back, primed with acid-etch, a white sealer coat, many layers of the fluorescent hot red and then 2 separate clear coats sanded and polished.

All paint once again.
The linear flow from the seat tube and along the top tube made this a challenging project.
Harry from Field got the inspiration for this palette from a pair of ski's he saw in an 80's James Bond film.
Painted the rear hub too as it was previously too dull for this build.
The camera can't quite capture just how bright this is.

Some early pictures of a camouflage cyclo-cross frame.
It was an enjoyable project this, building up the layers of colour.
The beauty of a custom paint finish is that the frame, forks, seat post and stem can all be done in the same way.
A frame and fork respray of a 20 year old Peugeot Columbus Thron.
No stickers were used, it is all paint.
The client wanted to keep a reference to the chequered band of Peugeot but didn't want the Peugeot decals or name.
I tried to keep the colours retro to reflect the age of the frame and to set off the fine old group set.
