Let's see who can build the coolest rat!
Well I have gave this A LOT of thought cause I really didn't want to do anything to my Hawthorne but what the h***. I am going to enter this as my piece to be done in Ol' Skool form and function. Troy
Well just to give everyone an update on my progress. I have got a lot done on my Hawthorne, went to a swap meet on Feb. 3rd and bought some stuff. I bought a new fork, crank, sprocket, and seat. I do not have a digital camera so that SUCKS. I am only going to have the finished paint pics of my parts not the nasty pics like most. Well hopefully I can get one of my friends to take some photos for me this weekend. Thanks Troy
Got A LOT of stuff done on my Hawthorne this week. It's pretty much 80% done have the wheels to do yet (paint, prep and lace).
26. 2.125 WW rear tire
26 1.75 WW front tire
Seat I bought at the Swap meet $15 with some new paint. Left some rust for good luck.
Swap meet truss rod fork $10 from something? New paint pretty rough when I got it.
Swap meet crank, bottom bracket and sprocket $5. Of course new paint.
Now the tank halves beat some dents out, sanded with 80 grit. Primered and painted Rustoleum Gold rush metalic, and Rustoleum gloss white with some Dupli-Color Clear Coat. Made some stincles for the scallops I wanted and taped them off and shot them. I am going to pinstripe in Black 1 Shot around the spallops. It's Glossy So I hope thats not problem.
The frame is done in the same rattle can colors as the tank.
I don't have a digital camera and I have to use my friends to get some pics. Thats why I don't have any rough pics of the parts. Sorry for that guys. I really like what everyone has done and it's going to be a close decision. Thanks for looking, Troy [/img]
what about RED for the Scallop Stripping edges..seen it done with Gold and White before and it looks great..
just my 2 cents..no responce required..
I love it,it's right up my Alley as far as
Style and Design goes!
I agree with Clothespin - the scallops are great!
I've taken the liberty of applying some digital trickery to see how a few colours would look for striping (I hope you don't mind)
and some Green stripes:
