I have not weighed in on the Restoration and Repaint thread but I have only repainted bikes which have come to me repainted already(and always not so well). Some of my bikes show real Patina (Severe Patina?) On repainting my Legnano I had a chance to see it totally bare at the paint shop. When questioning about some of the lug edges which looked 1970 production, I was told ''I am not going to make it something it isnt'' ,maybe words to live by. I am sure the lug lining is much better than new though.
