    Hey guys!

    I found this Dyno on craigslist, traded a few items that were gifts ($40 worth) and got to take home the "Ugly" cruiser.
    Its been a lot of fun.

    I sanded it down with a scotch brite pad. Took about 2 hours. I also repainted the chaingaurd black.... Im going to do rasta colors but with a Black base.

    Looking good. I wish my wife liked patina, it would make it so much easier to build her a bike instead of cruising her pink Windwood next to my rusty rat lol, plus they look oh so cool.

    You coulda make it patina hehe. With it being pink I'd (wish her permission haha) use scotch brite pads and sand. It'd make it look flat and over time create its own patina.

    I'd never get her permission lol, she likes "shiny" and "clean". With this one, I kinda liked the black wheels. I'm curious to see how far this goes.
