    And they saved the headbadge! Thanks Chris Who knows how old the parts are but they look new, as the re-build moves along they are all being cleaned.

    Steve, Chris's wrench says it'll be a shame to ride this in the rain. I know Knott keeps her bikes spotless.

    That's backwards. You get the car to match the bike!

    I dunno about that the only pain we're into is quads after a climb.

    At the risk of getting this thread locked I think this bike's the same red as the sheets at the end of this video:

    And Trace, how's about helping with the kids and groceries? That's hot. Chicks dig help with housework.

    I'm noticing the saddle - it looks really comfy. What style is that called? I ask because I've just restarted my own longish rides after being off-saddle since November, and everything feels great except my nether regions. D*H picked this seat out for me (oh, he of the scoffing-at-kickstands persuasion), but I think I need something broader and more cushioned...do they make marshmallow bike seats? Something with goosedown, maybe?

    And yeah, that red is something else. It's a beautiful bike. It's just so classic looking!

    I want a brass bell now.

    Ah, bike envy. So this is what it feels like.

    It's a Brooks saddle, lots of folks like them (including me), but they are anything but marshmallow like... the leather is quite hard, you can knock on it like wood.
    The most horrendously painful saddle I ever rode on was a big soft puffy marshmallow saddle.

    How much $ to paint a frame?

    That red is gorgeous. Now I want to paint my bike red too. My burnt orange aluminum frame just isn't doing it for me.

    So how much does it cost to make that happen?

    This is the 2nd bike I've had painted. The first was my commutermobile. Check the powdercoat thread:

    http://forums.teamestrogen.com/showthread.php?t=8295

    Another TE'er with fantastic paint job done by the same LBS

    http://forums.teamestrogen.com/showthread.php?t=13209

    I think Ms. Jobob had one of her Riv's repainted here, I can't find the thread.

    Your price varies. Are you having it painted or powdercoated? Paint's more expensive.

    Reproducing decals, custom decals or leaving it plain? Ours have all been plain.

    Making upgrades or hope to find the plastic baggie with the orriginal parts and where they go?

    Your price varies.

    So you could check with your local shop or PM me and I'll point you to my guy.

    This is one of KnottedYet's bikes. She has very wide sits bones and one leg that's slightly longer than the other. This Brooks model is the saddle that fits her, and with springs the leg length difference is a non-issue.

    I have a Sella Italia butt, she's got a Brooks butt

    Brooks makes various widths, sizes both with springs and without. I'm sure there's a thread here somewhere with Everything You Need to Know About Brooks.

    Some people love 'em, some hate 'em, some like the look, some think it's is a fad, some feel Brooks on a road bike is an abomination, some feel anything ELSE on a "country bike" is a crime against nature.

    If the Brooks fits, ride it I must say if your saddle is not comfy the answer is usually NOT to get wider and/or more padded. You just gotta match your bones so you are not riding on any of the soft tissue. Ask around here, try different saddles.

    Which is funny since my truck is a Dodge and they call it "Inferno Red" and they are likely the same red or is yours the more flat red. This is the metallic darker red which seems to be the only red dodge truck I see in Texas.

    My Dodge Caliber is black with "Inferno Red" inserts (meaning plastic dash and red seat panels). I laugh because my little compact car isn't tough or fast with her racey seat inserts.

    Where I'm from, we'd call that Candy Apple Red! Absolutely gorgeous! It inspires me to get cracking on getting my 1988 pink Bridgestone up and running properly!
