You could of course get your frame powder-coated, and then if not happy with the results, where pitting is still visible, rub down with fine wet-and-dry paper to give a ‘key’ and then fill the pitting and respray the affected tubes. As I said in the last paragraph of my previous posting, it all depends on what usage the bike is going to get…. The other thing to consider is whether or not you want to enhance the value of the bike, and for the sake of a few extra hours of work, at very low cost, I personally prefer to get the finish to something like it would have looked like when new, ie. free from pitting.
