Hi wurtulla wabbit,
I must comment on your comment about my bike and its paint job. At no time did I ask for your opinion re the paint job. In fact, this thread, started by old al, was asking for other forum members' personal experience painting lugs. I have that experience as I have painted quite a few bikes and I was giving him a quick rundown about my method of painting lugs. I was not putting my bike up as a prime example of frame painting technique. I also read how you have never painted a bike and could add little to old al's question.
I think you have missed the point of this particular forum. This forum attracts people interested in retro biking and is a very supportive and encouraging environment - always has been - always will be.
You are entitled to your own personal opinions about other forum members bikes and their interests and experiences but personal values are rarely written down unless they are asked for by the person initiating the thread.
I think you need to ask yourself if this type of supportive environment is for you or would your more negative responses be at home in other forums.
I love retro bikes mate, I own a 30yr old fully restored Harold master, perfect condition and whilst I admire your "having a go" (at my comment and your frame lug painting) I would suggest you develop a sense of humour (really sensitive) as I was just yanking your chain.
Edit. It's a public forum and as far as I have experienced in numerous other public forums, if you don't want opinions , don't post photos as they'll be subjective and not always the expected pat on the back.
Iif you think its good, you also need your eyes tested,it is rough but hey, go for your life !
