Keep diaries of your 20" wheel and under build of bikes here.
you probably have a better chance then me!
anyway......theres light at the end of the tunnel thisll be wrapped up friday night so it can go to the hooligans show(along with the pixie,the black bike and the wifes)....
its just waiting for this.......
to be blocked and painted(tonight probably) so it can go here.......
have one more thing id like to do to this(if my package ever gets here .......COME ON UPS!!!)but its not a necessity(would just look 'right') ohhhhhh well
Can't wait to see it with the tank in place. Feels good to see the light at the end of the tunnel,... I'm right behind you. Guys like you and Karfer have taught us to pay attention to "details". BUT, you forgot to tell us how much of a PIA it is.
MY INTRO/BIKES ... WHEEL WE EVER BE SATISFIED?
try painting pinstripes on an assembled small bike where if you mess up you CANT use acetone to remove and redo(did i mention they can roll some while youre doing it ) im glad to hear someone else is having as much fun as me
at least itll be worth the trouble.......my son loves it even though its NOT red
d'oh!! forgot to mention the clear im using is testors gloss coat#1261 over ppgs etching primer over a dull surface you can get a nice low gloss of if you want it to really shine you can get out the rubbing compound and make it miles deep(gotta love lacquer clears!)
well.......its as done as its gonna get for now
i had a set of old wheels that i bought 2 weeks ago but the guy slacked on shipping them and they wont be here until about a week from now so the chrome wheels will stay until then (just for the record they were some wheels from a 50's huffy that i was going to prime the same color as the frame...the light green) this has been alot of fun and i took this to a bike show and no one even noticed that it was a 26" girls huffy that was sectioned 3 1/2" . everyone thought it was just an old kids bike so i guess i did well
this was alot of fun and theyre some great bikes that came out of this and theres gonna be alot of happy kids!!
congrats to all that did this!!
btw final pics will be posted here but with a finished thread
sensor i am very impressed with this bike. it is very well done and finished to a very high standard. it is very easy to put a bike together just about anyone can do that but what makes a bike a winner is when it is the whole package and when i saw it close up at the show i was very impressed. now you got me worried for the big build off especially comming off a win like this or are we calling it that yet? anyways awsome bike, very well detailed (ever had to sneeze while pinstriping? ) and yes i call it rat. what still blows me away about this bike is when you step back and think about what it started as.
