Re: 50'S CORVETTE...soon to be wife's custom

Got the frame home and started getting the parts installed. She is looking pretty colorful...love it to. Wife likes it so far so thats all that matters really. Tomorrow after going to the Lake...the rest of the parts go on hopefully.

did some more work tonight. Coming out ok. Just having issues with the tires fitting this bike. I want to use 2.215 ties but they are too big..so i have to go with 1.75's.

wow, that looks good! :D that paint reminds me of anodized mtb parts. old looks new :D :D

i used Krylon METAL X. That stuff is amazing. The frame was powder coated. That Metal X paint makes the metal really shine under the paint. Gives it that old new swirl look if there is such a thing :eek:

The reason I had to build my wife the corvette was I built my son the Evel Bike..then i built myselt the American flag bike pictured below...so she felt left out..and ya cant leave the wife out right?? :D

The newest photos of the finished WONDER WOMAN bike. Added the rack on the back..and some new paint and decals. Also the Head badge is totally different from what i had planned. After struggling with the red and white schwinn badge she looks at me and says..honey..i have an idea. She had this old WONDER WOMAN bracelet from God knows where..she says will this fit?? I cut it down and i'll be darn..it fits around the head tube perfect. Drilled a hole and it mounted with the head badge screw. Anyway..here it is..FINISHED ready for TOUR DE FAT 2012 in the morning.

I know most dont like this kind of build..it aint ratty..and its not COOL..but it was fun to build...and rides nice so far
