Esteemed list members, I am just wrapping up on a Motobecane Grand record refinish. I realize that this can open a can of worms, but I am willing to take my chances (and lumps if need be). This is my interpretation of what this bike could have looked like had it not been a (French) production bike. This is a "sentimental" refinish, and I want my customer to love it more than he ever has. I could never in good conscience make this bike look the way it did new. I am actually surprised at how well the new lug lining went on. So, this isn't just about me showing off, but more about my position of interpreting how this was supposed to look to the designers that came up with the concept. Same goes for any Peugeuot as well. Because this isn't about $$value I want to know what you members think about this concept. If this was your bike, how would you want it to look?
