    After seen many great bikes from other builders, I thought I should also try to build one myself.

    Here's what I found:

    Rust, multiple layers of paint, mud and a comfortable seat. What else can you need from a bike! :D

    This kind of beach cruisers became popular here in Argentina since the 90s, and this bike in particular was made by a company called "Reynoso Hnos." (that would be something like Reynoso Bros.). I don't know anything about this company but after a fast Google search I found out they broke some years ago...

    Anyway, I haven't decided what to do with this bike yet. I've been seeing many, many pics of build offs, customs and off the shelf bikes for inspiration. Meanwhile, I wanted to show you at least the original bike.

    Sorry about my english, I hope you understand me.
    Cheers, Coronado

    But I ended up using a grinder, here's the result:

    That's right, I used a grinder with a whire wheel. I also liked the result, the metal shine is amazing! It really surprised me.

    Here's a problem: How do I keep it this way? Just with a clear coat? Will that stop rust?

    I was going to paint it grey or aluminium but you are right, I'll just use some clear coat.

    clean..clean..clean..and then
    Clean it again( with an Aromatic Solvent..like Laquer Thinner ) before you Clear coat it!

    I think it's going to look GREAT in Ratty old wire wheeled Metal.

    peace,

    The handlebar is almost the same size as the old one.

    I need to add some color to the bike, there's too much metal/crome and black on it.

    What do you think of something like this?

    Metal/crome + black + some yellow stripes (or pin stripes).

    its your bike! i think that the roll on pinstriping stickers would look bad ... in any colour. maybe the ones that come with 2 stripes in 2 different widths?
