Speak to Mick Perry at Hampshire electroplaters.
They do all Wasps work, and have done for years and years.
I just had Ethel redone, and the frame looks brand new.
I will post some pictures tomorrow.
Not cheap, but brilliant job.

I'm no expert on frame building Doogle, but i'm sure the forks go the other way round!!!!

That's why I stand on the side, and you sit on the bike Shaun...

I'm reminded of that famous quotation " you can't polish a turd"

but, as Adam told me

"you can roll it in glitter"

You can't polish bananaman yellow powder coat either.... Laughing
And lets face it, with my track record there will be more polishing than racing.

grit blasting

Post  Peter Logan on Wed Feb 01, 2012 8:25 pm

Apart from being an ace passenger from the past looking for a ride, as old as your dad but without the zimmer frame, I can also offer you all my services to blast clean your wasp frames to remove old nickel plating and crap from the past, I can also remove bird shit welds and weld again properly before you replate. Logans the name, 07973 655880 Guildford area call me any time.

Very useful to know Peter -I'll be in touch when mine needs doing. Can you also do vapour blasting ?

vapour blasting

Post  Peter Logan on Thu Feb 02, 2012 1:38 pm

Sorry only abrasive blast cleaning, using fine crushed glass. I can also weld frames and apply epoxy coatings. My friends up in Ash Vale near Alsershot do fine blasting of engine parts, casings and the like, they use vapour blasting, they are called Elgamec, speak to Nigel or Paula.
