Vintage 531 Claud Butler track frame. 1949. Stunning. (eBay item 270710953738 end time 03-Mar-11 06:21:54 AEDST) : Sporting Goods

Oh man, I was really hoping that Claud Butler wasn’t my size. It is, though.

That is some seriously thick paint on the hetchins

Was thinking the same, it’s a detractment.

It’s really thick on both of them. Shame.

put a 120 stem on the hetchins and its my size…

dooooooooooo iiitttttttttttt!!!

Nah I don’t think its been powdercoated, just heeeaaavily painted - as prev. said by ben and spirito. Maybe covering up some rust damage that couldn’t be sanded out? Pity. The lugs, stay details and decals are really great.

looks like they’ve had a big hit of clear over decals and the pin striping - usually pin striping isn’t cleared over.

that’s why it looks pretty thick
