Hi all-

Well, hopefully by next week I'll have the Holdsworth (path racer) up and cycling. Nicely parted it up with Campy 151 BCD pista cranks and steel track pedals. NR seatpost and headset and record calipers. Comprimised on the wheels since I didn't have track hubs avail to me and I wanted flip/flops so I had a pair built with Mavic MA3/Suzue - forgive me:) Would like to get some vintage flip/flops when I have some $$$ gain!

I want to wrap the bars with some orange Tressostar & I have heard that shellac helps preserve the color.

I have never used shellac on tape before, I just wrap and watch the cotton fray!

Anybody got some pointers on what and how to do this?

Or even if I should!!!
