I plan to send my frame back to it's Québec birthplace to be re-painted by
I rode today and enjoyed it. I even bumped into Hans and it's always good to chat with him as I returned from Burnaby mountain. The roads were wet & slippery, in fact, my front tire gave way on a slick storm drain. No matter, I'm ok as I managed to catch the bike as I lost control.
My days with my bike are numbered. I have Sunday & Monday as my only two days left for a final ride before my Marinoni goes back home to Terrebonne, Quebec. It's official, I have made arrangements to have my 1987 Marinoni to be re-painted and then restored. Tuesday morning I'll deliver it to the bike shop to start the process. When I heard that Cycles Marinoni offers a service of repainting it's old frames, I'm very happy and eager to have it done. Years of use has nibble away portions of the paint to metal. A new paint job is sorely needed... it is 23 years old.
