Should I touch up my Brompton?
#1
I have a Brompton H3L that I enjoy very much. Unfortunately it got scratched up a little--not sure how Sad--I was wondering if it's worth touching it up? And if so, how should I go about getting the touch up paint?

Autoparts stores have touch up paint.

All of my bikes have some scratches, none have been touched up. My bikes are for riding, not for showing though.

That's a question only you can answer. If you chose to do it get duplicolor touch up sticks at automotive store (as close a match as you can get and wipe the brush on the jar lip so it does not drip and than touch up with small tap tap dots.

I use a 00 paint brush from art store , a magnifying visor. and a good light.
Never Give Up!!!
