Underneath this awful photo looks to be something very interesting. Another find for Sydney forumites to save!

While definately not a Malvern Star, not sure what lurks underneath this pretty worn road bike:

Out of interest, how did you pick it for powdercoating? As usual the photographs flatter the paintwork but to me it it could be two-pack or enamel. Admittedly the faults that are mentioned in the description do sound like what you get with poor powdercoating.

If it is powdercoated they have got buckleys of getting what he's asking. Lucky to get half that.

Not to mention a Paconi track frame, which is not just straight, but "very straight".

The giveaway is the photo of the rear dropouts, dripping/streaking from stays, applied way too thick and with that ultra-high gloss that powdercoating has.

What silly muppet thought it was a good idea to powder-coat a Hetchins ?

I didn't think it was too bad - all braze-ons are still there and the parts look to be of reasonable quality, albeit not period correct.

The only thing letting it down for me was the fork doesn't look original...and it's not my size.

Fork definitely not original, and I think may be one of those 'photograph better than it really is' scenarios.

Phew! For a minute I thought you meant some sad person had paid$1500 for the Hetchins!
Still reckon that is going to be hard to shift....

But it now has 1 bid at $1,000. Call me skeptical but I am doubtful as to the legitimacy of that bid
