Chad, much like Old School's "Altered Ego" from last year, I plan on being able to switch back to stock front end set up so she can ride it comfortably. That front wheel wasn't for show. It's ready to go. The fork will be painted with the frame.
I couldn't find the saddle I wanted in a price I could pay. I wanted a nice violet seat with mylar stripes, but the only one I found was $200. (I can't stand repop seats. They don't look right for an old muscle bike IMO). So, I bought a solid smoothy. I'm going to add a racing stripe to it to make it look better. That will be another first for me, so I hope I don't blow it.What are you plans for a saddle on this swoopy pony?
It definitely makes the seat POP now! Looks great.I shot the frame and parts yesterday. I can tell you... it came out spectacular! While that cures at the shop, today I started to prep the last of the parts for the final build.
Here's the plain, smooth purple seat. Not awful, but I wanted more... "pizzaz" for my daughter's build.
It has a black border around the bottom, so...
I taped it.
Shot some black.
Shot some white.
And ended up with this.
Not bad for my first time. I got a little bleed thru, but I'm happy with it.
