    the metro-bar bike is my felt little ....... - the front end is none other than a girvin...

    thanks for the kind words guys - last years build was such a botch for me, i want to get back on top. the odds are stacked against me (finals, graduating, moving, life) but im getting it done.

    im buying myself an end of quarter gift, well 3 - 2 console radios, a 1953 roadmaster luxury liner (super rare green OG bike, and possibly the worlds oldest racycle) its going to be an exciting bicycle month

    i found some great clearcoat with very very small metal flakes in it- in a spraybomb and it makes bare metal look like glass. the plan is strip the skirts, spray transparent red on the bare metal (in a few places) and clear coat the whole thing. im going to try a few more cleaning tactics on the fenders, brash brush, mag wheel polish ect. but if that doesnt work im going to wire wheel them and clear coat (if i ever wanted to fully restore it, it would be pretty easy.

    im also going to spray that transparent red on the fenders as scallops - like the old x-53...

    [​IMG]

    whats with this transparent red stuff? well thats how murray used to do the tanks and racks. they would chrome the whole thing then spray transparent red over it...

    now i just have to wire up my tail light...

    well, I myself am big, fat and pretty custom, so i take that as a great big compliment!

    about the other thing - i may be forced to liquidate some of my stash - of course rrb gets first crack. "its all about community, mang"


    in bicycle news - still waiting for my tires, i pulled the classic move of wait outside until the mailman shows. then when he showed up without the package all he could say is "another bicycle mr. williamson?" he's trained well.

    one time the UPS guy stuck around while i unboxed my 53 super cruiser imperial, he was almost as excited as i was.

    a quick unrelated question not regarding the jetflow...

    what do you guys think...

    Re: The Jetflow Express - hellaflush lowpro tires..

    so heres the best derail yet - i let my mania kick in today -

    and a lamp...

    wait... roadmaster.... really lobsterboyx? really?

    oooh la la... green light special

    so heres the story - a close friend of mine bought this a few years ago - he used it as his college daily rider, he brought it back and while its condition deteriorated, its still a beautiful original bike. back when we first got it, we put the white tires and modded up the delta to have 2 led pods - green and white. he wanted to move on to a more normal bike but he wanted his precious roadmaster to stay in the fam. lets just say i obliged. others have said it, but ill stick to my word when i say that the CWC shockmaster fork is the best fork ever made. ive been lucky enough to have 3 bikes equipped with them, and every one of them, a winner.

    still waiting on my jeralds... for the flow :?

    tomorrow....racycle :roll:

    Mr. Danny, you're a freak!!! I thought I was the only one who goes to bed at night contemplating what color to paint rims and how to build and mod lights... I'm actually attempting to build a RRBO entry.... It's under '52 Straightbar.... Looks like you've been up to Blue's too, now you are a Racycle geek too?

    FINALLY... i got my jeralds in the mail. these tires are awesome, big, fat, lots of meat...

    [​IMG]

    er... um... yeah...


    [​IMG]

    i actually cheated a bit and mounted them first to my new roadmaster to see how they rode, and i can say, that they are smooth as glass and even with square tread they feel great. it makes that smooth shockmaster even better. i foresee more of them in the future.

    anyway...
