I recently got hold of an Olmo. A 50th anniversary, Columbus tubed, full Chorus Olmo to be exact.
After years of riding bikes that are too small for me I have at last found something that I believe to be perfect for me, but it needs painting. No, really, it does. Despite what is written here I am going to do it as the frame is 1. In a relatively bad way and 2. It’s disgusting, I don’t do 2-tone black and grey with rust spots!
So, I am not sure what colour to go for at this point but here is some great inspiration I found at bulgier.
Next is the tussle between powder, acrylic and enamel. Powder is very cheap, easy but can look a bit ‘flabby’ but then where near to me will do stove enamel? Let the tussle begin.
