My first muslauf project: Part 1

In july, after quite a lot of researching and thinking, I finally decided to convert my Rog maraton to fixed gear along with complete rebuild/repaint/refresh.
I disassembled the bicycle and started stripping the paint with lavacol.

Few days later all paint was stripped.

At this point I was very tempted only clear coat it, to capture this beautiful natural metal finish with brazed joints.

I cut and smoothed unnecessary mounts for mudguards, kickstand,...

Then I primed the frame and forks and sent them to the paint shop.
