Start your RRB Build Off diaries here!
so, I started laying primer yesterday on the front end, I followed a little work with a bit of color today. Gloss black and Ivy Leaf by Krylon.
first coat of black
after 2 coats of Ivy. I'm going to leave the flaws alone
I like that green.
I've got your missing parts (tank, rack, and chain guard) if you're interested.
It doesn't matter what I paid for it, it matters what it's WORTH. I never buy anything I will regret KEEPING.
I'm not using a tank on this adventure, and I've got a chaingaurd and rack, but thanks for the offer
not much to update, as I have been prepping to paint the frame.
I did order a set of wheels from Chuck for the build.
alright people, it is Friday .... noonish here in south Tejas and it is wicked warm My boys got out of school yesterday and the 10 year old wanted to chip in on "Grandma's bike". I let him take the sander to etch the frame.
he loved using the sander so much I tossed him a chain guard
there is chrome under that rust!
frame ready for a final wipe down and primer
time to feed the machine and then shoot some primer.
Looking forward to paint.
I love those Spaceliner guards. They look cool with lights behind them by the way.
It's really great to see your boy chipping in!!!!!!!
He was only 18 months old when she passed. He looks at pictures of her holding him and he knows how much she loved him. I'm so proud that he is that way.
So while paint is drying on the frame, I started to scuff up the cranks. Little man says "hey dad, what about these cranks?" He points to a Wally World BMX bike with a stripped freewheel. (bike is only 4 months old) Black cranks indeed! Plus the advantage of a "newer" bottom bracket and bearings. Still thinking about what chainwheel to use on this project. I'm giving myself too many choices everytime I find a new ring I like. I guess that is the fun part of the hobby.
That green really does pop!!
