Hi Steve,
I hope I am doing this correctly ! Just to say thanks for your help today and it does fit my bike so I now have a fallback . Loved your work on the A10 - very tempting to change mine from beige to black !!
All the best for your party ,
Cheers,
Ray

Hi Steve,
I forgot to ask ,in my last message, for the details of your chrome workers and sprayers ( both of whom have done a stunning job ) 
.  I was wondering how much the spray work cost as I feel I want to take my A10 to that level if I can and want to start budgeting for a winter stripdown/repaint .
I appreciate any help you can give ,
Ray

For powder coating the hubs I worked with the wheel builder who managed that as a part of the build process. I used Brickwoods who advertise in the comics and are excellent. They are close to you near Salisbury.

I heartily recommend them all, but please be aware they are not the cheapest! The cost depends heavily on the starting point - if there is much preparatory work to be done on the parts it multiplies the work, and they can only tell you after they have seen the bits.

You may want to work with someone local to you - inevitably questions arise and I found it necessary to go and see them several times while the jobs were in progress. Coming from Salisbury every time could be a pain. However I'm sure you would be pleased with the results, as I am.

good luck
Steve

Hi Steve,
Many thanks for all the leads. Mine offers a different set of issues in that it is polychrome beige ( as are the hubs and frame ) making powder coating a non starter ..... unless of course I opt for a colour change to black .  The bike looks very good anyway so I hope to be up and running for the summer and make some decisions for next winter .
Cheers,
Ray
