    Well just to give everyone an update on my progress. I have got a lot done on my Hawthorne, went to a swap meet on Feb. 3rd and bought some stuff. I bought a new fork, crank, sprocket, and seat. I do not have a digital camera so that SUCKS. I am only going to have the finished paint pics of my parts not the nasty pics like most. Well hopefully I can get one of my friends to take some photos for me this weekend. Thanks Troy

    Now the tank halves beat some dents out, sanded with 80 grit. Primered and painted Rustoleum Gold rush metalic, and Rustoleum gloss white with some Dupli-Color Clear Coat. Made some stincles for the scallops I wanted and taped them off and shot them. I am going to pinstripe in Black 1 Shot around the spallops. It's Glossy So I hope thats not problem.

    The frame is done in the same rattle can colors as the tank.

    what about RED for the Scallop Stripping edges..seen it done with Gold and White before and it looks great..

    Style and Design goes!

    I agree with Clothespin - the scallops are great!

    I've taken the liberty of applying some digital trickery to see how a few colours would look for striping (I hope you don't mind)

    Red stripes:

    Black stripes:

    and some Green stripes:

    Awesome guys thanks for the comments!!!! Thanks Multipass for the 3 pics on pinstripe colors now I have some thinking to do on that. The black might be a little bland so I might go with the red or green. I love this website!!!! Troy :D
