Let's see who can build the coolest rat!
its your bike! i think that the roll on pinstriping stickers would look bad butt in any colour. maybe the ones that come with 2 stripes in 2 different widths?
it's all fun and games till someone gets hurt, then it's just fun!
Well, I'm still not sure if I'll use any color on the frame. MAYBE I'll do somthing similar to that Hooch... I'll finish the bike and than I'll see what to do.
Meanwhile, here's what I did for the crank.
I'll paint the "disc" in mate black, just like the chain guard
The Chainring looks great!
not to sound all"Smart and stuff"
but I would make sure you wash "neutralise"
the new Disc for the Chainring before you paint it
..if your are going too..
The Disc is made of galvanized Metal as I see in the Picture and
it is important that you prep it properly.
Galvanized Metal is a funny thing...
a sand / wash with a Aromatic solvent / and prime it with an Acrylic Primer.
"Galva-Prime" is good...or search out a Spray Bomb that is compatable
with galvanized Metal..
The best method for Galvanized metal is TIME.
buy that I mean..let it age for a while and then paint it..but we don't have that time.
Just a heads up on the Galvanised Primer...
.....and be VERY carefuil if your cutting/welding or even drilling it.
The Vapours from the Metal are very dangerous and they can make you badly sick!
I don't want to see a fellow Bike Builder get all messed up on
The Bike is looking GREAT!
And here's a full pic of the bike
New tires (I found some Kenda Flame, I can't believe it), wide rims and a Nexus hub.
I know I'm braking the rules, but I plan to use this bike everyday and I'm very used to the gears (I had a mountain bike for too long! )
