Jan 75 Kingpin
Making the most of the weather.. 2nd coat of lacquer after some minor rust treatment and touch up paint... Added some red to the 'i' to liven up the dark green a bit..

Hi Cador , thanks for your comment.
Yes, I'll be keeping this 'fairly' standard except for some vintage chrome rat traps to replace the rubber pedals and a more comfortable saddle. The mudguards have also been sprayed Anthracite grey to give it a muted two- tone look. Chrome mudguards are a nice contrast with some colours but I thought I'd experiment with this green and see how it turns out... :)

Now that is the nicest early Kingpin frame I've ever seen!. And those red highlights add a touch of individuality. Are you keeping the build original?
