I would like to paint the frame black, but am a little nervous about getting everything back together after.
We used to take our British bikes apart and do things like paint frames and body parts and it can be done, as long as you're careful and document the process with pictures and notes, so you don't end up with a basket case in the Spring.

The biggest hurdle these days is the complexity of the wiring harness. British bikes had about 5 wires in the main loom. Modern bikes have far more.
