It's like being a factory rider but you drink more beer and your score doesn't matter.

Take it to a powder coating company and choose a colour.
It will look like new.
The only problem with this is it's addictive. Once you've had one part powder coated, you won't want to stop!

I degreased it and blanked off all the holes etc myself (that's suprisingly time consuming) and it cost £150. One colour would have been £100, but I really wanted a white frame.
In reality it did cost a bit more, as you strip a bike down that far, you always find other things that need replacing that you would otherwise have missed/ignored. I put it back together with new bearings and stainless steel fasteners which added another £50 or so. (Search online for bearing numbers if you need any. Bearings from bearing companies are a lot cheaper than ones from motorcycle manufacturers.)
I hope this helps.
