My Serotta needs a new coat of paint.

I cleaned my bike last Sunday.  I decided to take some pictures of the rust spots on the frame.  Even as I consider my options for getting a newer lighter bike I want to preserve the Serotta for bike commuting.

I really love this bike and it pains me to see the rust encroaching on the frame.  Hopefully when I do get a new bike I can then take this bike apart and have it restored.  I may consider getting it powder coated.

    You know, Lonnie, you can always have the frame media blasted and powdercoated. Might cost you a couple hundred bucks, but it's cheaper than a new CroMo frame.
