    Best looking "imitation" patina I have ever seen. The whole bike has come together brilliantly. Congrats :)

    Incredible job on this bike! I love everything about it... except the part where I can't ride it!

    Yup look's like another old barn find.
    What? faux finish? Surely you gest!

    The attention to detail makes my brain hurt. I wouldn't have believed ya painted rust unless I saw it myslef.
    loved every min of your build thread. every minute!
