RALLY RAT! More Painting! Woo Hoo!

Discussion in 'BUILD OFF 7 BIKES' started by outskirtscustoms, May 8, 2012.

  1. Finally got started on my build off bike. If this bike wins it will be the first girl's frame to win a build off AND the first 20" to win a build off! I will be starting with this 1968 Schwinn Fairlady frame.

    Glad to see you finally decided to join us. I'd love to find a set of solid wheel disks, maybe just 2.

    Mine is a 20" (dual) rear and 24" front, I guess I could throw a 16" spare on it.
     
  10. Re: Salt Flat Rat

    I got all the wheel covers painted and put them on some rims today They look great! It got dark before I could get pics. I test fit them on the Dyno Zone I got today to see how it looked and let's just say I'd love to find another set of these too.

    The Green Machines come with a set on the front wheel... :mrgreen:

    Definitely will be watching this one, love the Salt Flats look.
     
  12. Re: Salt Flat Rat

    Thanks for the tip I'll have to keep my eyes peeled. I also found a 16" wheel thrown out today. Kinda looks like a big wheel or unicycle wheel It has a crank integrated into the hub. Also has half a wheel cover on it but much heavier plastic. I'll get a picture of it tomorrow.

    Sadly I cut a set off of a Royce Union Spinout a couple years ago... STUPID STUPID STUPID! I need them for my daughter's tag-along, I'll just make some.

    I just got a dremal tool the other day from Harbor Freight, I'm getting bad ideas for the old mag rim I have. Few speed holes wouldn't hurt it would they?

  17. Re: Salt Flat Rat

    Okay bait and switch time! I sold my wheel covers so I am going to use my frame switch. Out goes the Fairlady and in goes my back up plan. Figured this tough Huffy would make an awesome Off Road Rat. So I now introduce you to Rally Rat.

    I started with this broken down and spraybombed Huffy Mojave.
    [​IMG]
    I decided to do a little flat black and sand through to the decals. I left the Huffy ones under the paint. :mrgreen:

    Little copper wool took the paint right off the decals

    You have to take the rims off and paint them gold so you can have some rally rims on it
