UK Frame Painters

I've got a Colnago E1 frame (from eBay) which I love and have been riding it for about 6 months. When I bought it I was going to get it repainted but thought I'd build it up and ride it for a while first to see if I liked it. Well I do...

So I'm looking for personal recommendations for where to get it repainted in the UK. I've got a list from Google but really want first hand experience so I make the right choice. I'm not artistic so will need somewhere that can offer advice on what schemes might work.

Thanks for any help.

  • Try Larry at Illusion Race Paint in Stoke Bruerne, Northamptonshire.

    He painted motorcycle fairings for me, including applying and lacquering stickers over a new base colour. He did a great job. He's got an Orbea on his Facebook page, along with motorcycles, helmets and other stuff he's painted. I believe he's a cyclist himself.

    I used Neil @ Atlantic Boulevard to paint my Colnago and he did a fab job.

    Cromaworks in Sheffield, part of Field Cycles. Did my Colnago C40 and was excellent.

    Another interesting suggestion, thanks.

    Looks like there will be a few to choose from.

    Sent some forks to Fat Creations once - he couldn't be bothered to go to the Post Office to collect - I have to drive to Chichester to get them back - what a ball-ache! I've had a couple of frames done by Atlantic Boulevard - top class.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    Thanks - but got a message back from them saying they are no longer doing re-sprays.... Shame it looks like some great work.
