I've got a red Batavus that's pretty beat up on one side, looks the previous owner took a semi dramatic spill and then just let the bike sit for twenty years. I've been going back and forth on whether to paint, in the end I decided to leave the scratches and dings and just cleaned it up. I also replaced the black pinstripes which were brittle, peeling or missing with clean white pinstripes, which really added a lot of curb appeal.
