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.
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
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
