    Beautiful bike! Very nice paintjob!
    And the card in the spokes...not only a brilliant idea, but also very cleverly executed!

    well i rode this thing for an hour yesterday, and i really expected to have a white butt, or the white was going to peel, or scratch...

    but really, so far so good... it seems like it will last. i am always skeptical of fabric paints, so i figured the vinyl spray color was a long shot...

    i originally wanted to recover the seat in a white "tuck n roll" but ran out of time.

    my prep went like this:

    scrubbed the seat with soap and water, using a scrubby kitchen sponge.

    dried it.

    wiped it down with lacquer thinner.

    washed it again, let it dry.

    sprayed a couple of coats...

    i'll let you know how it holds up.

    Well, I'm slow on the draw sometimes.....and YES, I hadn't seen this build yet.

    October, this build is INCREDIBLE! From the color,stencil, and that friggin' AWESOME card device. That thing is PURE genious....and possibly THE most ingenious custom part that I've ever seen. :shock:

    No, What IS a scraper bike? BTW I redid my spitfire i got s-7s now black walls right kind of bars orig grips, Looks good. Looks old, Only bad thing is i snapped the original crank arm off, It was bent when i got it and it finally broke, i was riding it around my buddy's house at that bonfire, So now i'm running a 70's schwinn crank and 5 spoke sprocket out of a Hollywood on it, Looks good but not orig.. I Got plans for this bike.
