Discussion in 'BUILD OFF 14 - CLASS 2 - BUILD JOURNALS' started by Brian macumber, May 3, 2019.
Finally got some work done on the bike decided to go different route for the shifter. Going to use the twist shift on the handle bars and run the cable thru the top tube and come out by the the top chain stay. Then got the frame and fork sanded and primed.
And i also got the back rim painted and respoked to the nexus inner 3 just have to true it up.
Starting to feel like I'm making some progress but a lot left to do.
Had some time without rain to get the first coat of paint on the frame,fork, and handle bars. Also got some of the smaller parts primed and ready for paint but didn't get pics of them.
getting anxious to start throwing parts on it but still not in rush mode. The frame actually matches the color on the fork not sure what happened to the pic.
Man, I love the lines of that frame. Nice work.
Thanks I appreciate that coming from someone who has some awesome builds.
Had some pretty good weather this weekend so I have been able to get some work done. Got most of the small parts and handle bars painted.
A light sanding and second coat of yellow then a coat of clear today on the frame and fork.
Finally finished up the seat except for getting some new acorn nuts for bottom of the springs.
just before I got on here finished up my wheel set.
still have the chain guard,tank halves,and few other small parts to paint yet but some progress made.
I try to do something everyday. Even if it's just a bit of hand sanding or polishing something. Readjusting the handlebars... Just as long as it's something. It's getting there. Them frame lines are pretty cool. Tank plate in checkered would be a nice touch.
That yellow is great. Waiting to see more. GTB!! Peace
