Shouldn't have been splatter unless it was custom...uphiller said:It's a matter of taste. Personally, I think that vintage splatter paint jobs are still splatter paint jobs. It looks better without it, I'd say.
It's called eBay, it's like this amazing on-line marketplace where you can buy and sell most anything.larlev said:I can only wish I could find one to buy again....if anyone has a lead, please let me know
Once again for the short bus people like yourself ...this bike was done damn near twenty years ago....you think I new anything about drivetrain issues(it worked just fine after yrs and yrs of abuse) or keeping original paint. This was my FIRST bike...we didn't have the Internet to ask experts like yourself.....good lord dude.mechagouki said:It's called eBay, it's like this amazing on-line marketplace where you can buy and sell most anything.
M2s aren't particularly rare, though you'll be lucky to find one like the beautiful example shown above ( I don't mean yours). Of course if you want to strip that "ugly" paint off you won't care about the condition.
Interesting choice of cranks and pedals - were you trying to put together the most warranty-issue prone drivetrain possible.
EDIT: Loving the VW Fox in the background - wish I still had mine, cheap on gas and handling like a go-kart.
