    ok today

    do to some past bike builds. feeling like they needed up grades. they donated some parts for mock up of the new build. they may or may not stay on this build.

    first I had a broken tech 77 Dia-compe lever. so took a cooler older 80's lever with a cheap o mounting clamp. then drilled out the rivet. to mary the two brake levers in to one good lever. then made a 1" schwinn type lowrider springer work with. the 1 1/8 steer tube. then next fit a HB bikes !" thread less stem on. with a FSA PIG sealed down hill 1 1/8 head set. next made Sissy strought braises out of iron scrap. then well see pictures tiered of typing!

    got some more work dun on it. painted the name on splashed in some color. first I layed down some lace fabric. right over the old black paint. shot top and bottom tubs white . then puled off the lace. shifted it a little. then shot in the blue. then waited for it to dry. masked of what I wanted to stay colored with tape. then repainted the front black. next quick clear coat. as paint bubbled a little do to no dry time between paint color/clear. I was able to use a rubber mallet. to beat down the paint to get it more matching. the old worn factory paint.

    Tioga black and blue, matches your paint, looks tough. Amazing that you used lace to come out with a sort of urban camo! 8)
