|Would appreciate any advice on where to send my Eddy Merckx to have it repainted. The chrome chainstays are rusting badly and I want to salvage this frame before the problems get too far along.

|I recently got my $90 cruiser repainted for $360. Such a bargain! |
I used internationally known CyclArt, of Vista, CA, to get a powdercoat, decal restoration (and some custom decals), and clearcoat.
If I'd just wanted powdercoat and no decals, I could probably have gotten by for half the price.
CyclArt can restore rusted junkers to like new, removing pitting, rechroming, custom art, etc, for a price. They paint or powdercoat, depending on your needs. cyclart.com, if you're interested.

|I'm getting my frame back from spectrum cycles and they've been real friendly to deal with and easy to get ahold of. Cycle art didn't do a satisfactory job on the lower end bike I sent them, but the are probably the most knowledgable when it comes to older bike. Pheiffer phrames has done a really nice job. Your best bet might be to contact the merckx rep and ask where they send warrenty frames to be refinished. TTFN|

|Spectrum stripped and repainted my Bianchi (frame only, no fork) for a total of $175, shipped back to me. I didn't have anything fancy done, but they can do it, and since it's powdercoat, it's going to last.
Oh, and Spectrum does powdercoating that looks like wet paint...good stuff!

|I had an 80's steel Colnago with chrome fork re-done by Hot Tubes in Worcester, MA. Great job, including the decals.|| |
