np. he's not a powder coater btw. does resprays the traditional way, like Bob Jackson et al. He has a particular interest and expertise in vintage restorations but also does repairs and resprays on modern bikes.

In this circumstance, it's a small brazing job and nice colour matched enamel would be wanted. Cheers.

I've just had a motorcycle frame and myriad other parts done by Triple S in Bingley. Worth ringing and asking if they'll do a bicycle frame as they are absolutely first class - won't find a better company to entrust rare and expensive parts too.

+1. Chris has resprayed all my classics (stove enamelled) and he does work for many of the well known restorers. He will also do repairs, braze-ons, re-tapping, new forks etc. and his prices are reasonable. I believe that Ellis-Briggs don't actually do their own resprays any more (possibly sent to Jacksons like Woodrups) but I would be happy to be told otherwise. Like said above, only really contactable by 'phone.
I don't know where I'm going but I'll always tell you where I am.

I've had both Ellis Briggs and Jacksons replies to email with disclaimers about colour matching, so maybe I should call Mr Marshall soon and perhaps pop by with the forks to see what he thinks.
