    Unfortunately this trike won't be mine for much longer... It's been promised to a local Flagstaff Brewery as their beer bike. It will make it's debut this friday night and also hit the Saturday bike parade.

    So now on to progress! The only thing left to do tomorrow is to sand the stake sides and clear coat the wood. Took it for a ride around the neighborhood tonight and I'm kind of bummed I said I'd sell it. My technique for detailed masking is revealed below and the finished pictures from my sunset ride are at the bottom.

    Here are some photos from the weekend! The brewer taking the trike for a spin on Friday afternoon

    Hey Wacko, very nice job! 8)
    You got custom, classic, and hot-rod all rolled into one. Too bad it had to go, but it looks like it has a good “home” and a happy new owner.

    Love that beer hauler.
    Nice job. Makes me miss mind. Time to dust it off and take it for a ride.
