Musical instruments and bicycles and rust... Very mid-punk vibe.
Yeah ^! "These are a few of my favorite things"
I really like that paint job of yours! I might learn some new tricks along your way...
Following this one along!
Mockup of Handle bar & grip design. Made the grips from some machine bits out of the red tool box. Will do the same deep chocolate finish as the forks.
Fabbed the Chain guard and will paint (torch) to match fenders
Mock up of "Tank" on the frame.
Took a break from the build. Traded 3 steampunk lamps I made for this 40's Art Deco Stroller. I can't wait to diesel punk it once the build is complete.
Filled in the first section of the lower tube & painted; wanted to see what it looked in contrast with the"Tank".
Adding a little detail: Filled in the first tube; the Medieval weld by JB.
No, the second pic is not a gun handle; the chainguard is done.
It's taking on a wonderful steampunk vibe. You'll need some cool vintage goggles when you ride.
Final Hand Grip design.
Added inserts to the "Tank".
Ain't feeling the fenders for this build. Will be making more in keeping with the direction this build is going.
So this pair will go into storage for another day.
Chain ring done
I am going to use 2 pairs of old skinny rims to fabricate my front rear fenders that will tie in with my "Tank". Will post pics of this weekend's progress later
Awesome build !!
Thanks, Scribble. I appreciate the kind words of encouragement.
Dude, you're cranking out some fun stuff right out of the gate and having fun too! I really dig the handlebar sleeving.
KF, thanks. Miss seeing you do your magic. All the best my friend.
Starting to see too much shiny bits. Used the rotary deburr bit & took the shine off the exposed handgrips base.
