Why bother making it look clean and neat for the crackhead thief to sell at the pawn shop?

I am having trouble removing the old decals, when I get them off I will touch up the frame.

Yes I hear ya, I know what you mean.
I am torn between making it look new and sticking old cable housings etc on it to make it looki less desirable to tea leaves.

Its a very moot point, if you make something look what it is worth, it stands out.

When its finished, I guess replacement value would be 2k.

I have the best D shackle Kryptonite lock, but plan to be very careful with it.

It is ready to go to the LBS to have the gears and brakes rigged, and special long chain fitted.
Then I will wire it up.

I decided, it was best to have the LBS do the life saving things for a few bucks.

I repainted my cable housings for reuse, but the paint came off as soon as they hit the runners.
tHE CABLES HAD THAT ANNOYING stray unwound strand, so decided to go with new ones.
