  • Got my 15 year old Airborne frame + Straggler forks sprayed by Aurum just before Xmas. RAL 5011 with a gloss clearcoat. Really pleased with the result and turnaround was about a week.

    from this:

    to this:

  • Looked good before, looks great now. Is it a 26er? Any pics of it built?

  • It's a 700c frame but I had it running 650b last year (https://www.lfgss.com/comments/15314612/­)

    Commuter build coming soon... 650b tan walls, silver guards and finishing kit.

  • Anyone posted/couriered direct to Aurum and had returned. Clever Mike is my closest LBS with a link but its still a 2hr round trip on the tube to get to them - I'd like to go through them as they could chase the BB threads and fit a headset in the process but I guess they are busy and I havn't heard back.

  • Did you email them? They are very responsive over email in my experience.

  • Cheers - clever mike came back and Steve is doing a pickup from there wednesday.

  • Whats the go to touch up paint? Humbrol, Revell or what else should I be looking for?

    Also, anywhere in London that sells them?

  • Humbrol enamel for old frames last time I researched . Used to ba a model shop on Holloway rd (365 ?) and one in Holborn too “model zone” I thinks - you’ll get it all online tho these days obvs

  • Has anyone had success contacting Steve at Aurum recently?

    I've tried emailing and phoning but no luck so far.

  • Not directly, but I went through Clever Mike in Hornsey. 2 wk turn around ;-)

  • Thanks, it's for a non bike related job so I don't think I'll be able to go through a bike shop, really need to talk to him directly.

  • Stoked with this :-)

  • Nice colour, what process?

  • Clever Mike > Steve@Aurum. RAL 3032 Pearl Ruby Red+Gloss. Powdercoat a very impressive finish.

  • sweet, powder coat is so beyond what it used to be

  • Oh thats yours? I was admiring it in the shop other day, looks lovely

  • In my experience hes kind of hard to get hold on, I just keep ringing and he'll answer eventually

  • Yep - stoked with it - waiting on a few bits before I build it up.

  • Anyone got a price from Steve to sandblast a frame and fork?

  • I'm going to Clever Mike tomorrow and I want to know the same thing, so I'll ask. Will let you know. If they know, that is.

  • They dont, I need to get a frame done so I will ask steve to confirm the price for you.

  • Ah, thanks. I forgot to ask anyway, of course.

  • What is the best way to get the raw finish look ala Mash Work and Brompton Raw? I've got an old Genesis Day One I'd like to refinish.

  • I think a wet paint (clear lacquer) "raw" finish would achieve that sort of look but it's not particularly hard wearing. I have a raw pompino and there are hairline rust marks all over the frame now.

    Raw powdercoat would be much more resistant but I don't think it would look the same as mash works etc.

  • The guys from stayer said they will ask them today for you, but they think F&F is £35
