    Hmmm. Lives in Myrtle Beach, photo from inside the Worksman facility, building a Worksman Newsboy frame.:39:

    Would it be safe to guess that you are an employee at Worksman Cycles? Welcome to the forum and to the build-off Todd!

    Welcome to the best site on the internets! Hey Todd, your first pic doesn't show up on my screen. Use the 'Upload a File' button below each post, and load directly from your phone or computer. Then hit 'Full Image' and it will load to your post.

    Looking forward to your build! RaT oN~!

    Is there a way to get worksman frame decals? Would like to put them on my raw frame and clear coat the whole thing.

    Got some powder coat samples, now comes the tough part, which shiny thing do we like the best. My son is color blind, it’s ok, he’s been that way his whole life so he doesn’t know any difference, but he does have favorite color, like orange, which is where we’re leaning. He like New Tucker Orange because his name is Tucker, but I’m kind of digging the Illusion Money, or Booty blue

    It would be pretty cool having a bike powder coated with your name.

    Yesterday was powder coat day. It was almost as exciting a the birth of a child. I prepped the frame, watched it get powdered (the painter wouldn’t let me do it myself like I did my Low Gravity), then into the oven. When I came out, I was a little disappointed, it wasn’t the same as the swatch I had.

    When I got home, I checked my swatches, and wouldn’t you know. I ordered the wrong color.

    It’s still nice, and I think I’m gonna use my high gloss clear over it and see if that darkens it up.
