Alex's painted lady

As we all know by now there are lots of old boards lurking under resprays, and here's one Alex uncovered recently. When he bought it resembling some sort of weird biscuit with yellow and brown stripes, he thought there might be a more pure board underneath. And after a visit to the doctors at Fluid Juice out it came in its original state, a late 60s Chris Jones model Bilbo, looking fresh and ready to cruise after shedding its brown skin. Good work !

Thanks to Alex for the photos.
