Start your RRB Build Off Journal here!
Poor spoons have been used for everything ,but eating. The ornate silver ones use to make nice rings back in the day. Looking good . The minimalistic paint scheme looks good also.
Is everybody finished building yet?
Good work on the bike. This is definately one of my favs.
Got most of it put together today. I need to get a chain and work out a couple more kinks with the shifter, but it's getting there.
really like this bike, but why are you looking in my shop. the spoon trick i am using too. the cats out of the bag. oh well. i didn't see that on another bike, the spoon i saw was for a tail lite, since i am doing something different i thought i would use a spoon for my brake . hmmm. anyways, your bike is coming along very nice.
very very cool! nice and clean! did you clear the bare metal parts?

Outlaw- I guess it goes to show that great minds do think alike.
stretch- I did clear the bare metal parts. I sanded it down to about 800 grit sand paper and them sprayed it clear. It does darken it some, but I noticed that it lightens up some as the paint hardens.
Karfer- Here ya go
I got the chain on today and took it for its maiden voyage, and it was awesome!
(I swear I'll get some pics when there is actually some decent light )
I also got the nexus cable shortened, but I was too impatient to get the shifter all hooked up. So for now it is only in second gear and I have a feeling it will stay that way for a while 'cause I just want to ride it. Even just in second with that 52 tooth sprocket this thing seriously moves. I took it for about a five mile ride and it rides really smooth and straight. With the seat all the way down it is pretty low, but it still makes for a pretty comfortable ride. The best thing about the first ride was that a guy stopped me and asked where they could get one and I said, "you can't".
I want one too. The bike is absolutely gorgeous. One of my favorites. Ever.
