i would not say i stitch better then you can paint , ... there is something i cant do ... a kartwheel lol
why not pop the sprocket off so you can have a smaller hole? Once the disc is installed you can pop the sprocket back on.

bc i want to be able to take it off and on the bicycle as easy as possiable these will not be on the bicycle while its on the roof rack traveling cross country also dont want to be taking forever tearing down the bike and putting it back together when ever we feel like going for a ride .. the front wheel will have a tiny hole
just a heads up for later builds....to get a clean hole use a hole saw
looking forward to seeing the discs finished
"WAKE UP AND LOSE"
Let me tell you about driving with duel discs. Wow 50 mph max. Did it tonight. I had to pull over and get out the toe straps. Good thing I was able to sneak them through The disc and rim. I only went 15 minutes any longer and they would have been removed like Jen. People were running me off the road.
I shall try it!
Is there an orange that you would suggest that really pops? I'm pretty bad with oranges and usually end up with dull stuff haha
Your ride is looking mighty fine. I don't think you can steer your build wrong.
Your pinstriping makes my jaw drop! Really nice seatcover too, and I'm eager to see how the wheelcovers will turn out!
"Dä ä aldri kört!"
come on jen! show us those wheel covers on the bike! were dying here!!!
bicycle collecting is a disease....and there is no cure!
hahaha sorry guys i didnt work on the bike all weekend my weekends are usually busy doing other things but ill get back on the ball today
and juggy the orange i used is pumpkin patch orange by krylon,you can see if rustoleum has orange ,,,orrrr if you dont mind spending the money get auto paint in a spray can and go for hugger orange its the pontiac color from the 60's/70's that thing will wake anyone up who sees it lol
im leaving you guys in suspense on the disc covers hahahaha ... jk i couldnt get to them today bc something came up so i decided to get little things done
since its the "salt shaker" and the ends of my hand grips are all torn up i thought about beer caps on the end well a buddy suggested salt shaker caps it was like a duh moment hahaha so i went to the thirft store searching for big enough stainless steel capped salt shakers and i found a set
i used 2 part epoxy for it
also that brought back a idea i had for my pepsi build im going to use bottle caps on the axles . so for this one i found the bullet tiped salt shakers also from the bargan bin .
im using the muti holed ones, had to glue 2 nuts together and then glue the cap on
pardon the greasy/dirty hands "never trust a girl with out grease under her nails" someone once told me that
the wheel is just chillen there right now didnt have it bolted in b/c i thought i would have time to work on the disc's ...heres the caps on
i have to get 2 bolts for the front axle i didnt have any fine thread that size
alright i slightly kinda cheated here dotn know if its really cheating .. i had help from my b/f to get this light working .. i bought all the material! . so it would be like me just buying a whole new light thing from a shop right haha .. i dont sodder he does .. but i did have to cut the wires and run them threw the hole and i connected them back together and i put the switch in and put it on the bike so atleast i did do something lol im a electrical ditz...
got light! i dont have lenses for it but this is ok
Looking good! Kinda like a preying mantis or something in that pic.
Do the tires still look shiny after 2 weeks? I may use the shoe polish trick on my old tires.
The salt shaker end caps are great.
it always reminded me of the robot from the 80's movie short circut?
the show polish still has them shiney . but someone mentioned on here that show polish might break down the tire and they had a alternative method if you page threw you can find it mine are already so far gone so im not worried about it after b-ville and the funds grow back ill get a new set
