^ Bromptons are very thickly painted, and they also offer a "raw lacquer" finish, which is still painted but just uses a powder coat with no pigment

Wow I was a fan of the clear/varnish approach but after seeing that paint... definitely paint is better.

Wow; nice. Was about to post, riding in the clearcoat bandwagon, but I just saw the paint pic. It came out very nice!

Good stuff; can't wait to see it built up.

Thanks for the compliment guys.

Just gotten the frame, fork and stem earlier, will be posting additional pictures hopefully soon.
Unfortunately the complete build will be delayed indefinitely as I will be leaving Japan within the next two weeks.

Cheers

Always loved the look of steel with wavy seatstays. Is the fork going to stay black?
