    This is sweet, it's got that sun baked, "shop truck" look to it....love the color, I was just talking the other day with a friend of mine about how cool baby blue would look on a bike. A friend of mine has a Felt bike project in the works with no direction yet, gotta show him this because he also has 24" Electra wheels (royal blue) and blackwall Fatti-O tires from my Jeremy....

    Nice use of the Electra fork truss....are those Rat Fink wheels?

    Thanks man,

    Yeah this was the look I was going for makes for a great beater bike, and the frame was perfect for it. I'm going to have some customs signage done on the tank to Finish it off. I bought the wheels loose so I'm not sure what they came off of. She rides awesome.

    Awesome looking bike, not a faux patina fan but that has nailed it. Though I reckon it could
    Do with something on the timber sides of the rack?
