    I missed the part where you bonded the fender to the fork, and the skirt to the chainguard -- those look really slick, all smoothed in like that. They're going to make people double-take when they look at the bike. :)

    Thanks, I sure hope so getting the area around the steer tube right was a pain.

    This bike is a sleeper.
    I'm seeing the vision now and I believe you're gonna blow us all away right at the end! Can't wait!

    Re: Stock Isn't - Primer

    Thanks , I still have a couple ideas that I haven't leaked yet. If. All goes well I should be building the week before the end of the build off. Giving me the final weekend for any last minute fixes/ adjustments. I'm really itching to get it done.

    So I have decided to possibly unveil one of the secrets o the build, but only if some can guess its purpose. The rod in the picture was specially bent for this build and will be used. If the someone can name it's use I will confirm it if not it will remain secret until the finish.

    It looks like it follows the bottom tube of the frame to the back wheel. Hydraulic brakes?

    Then, It's a cycle-frakulator. It creates a cloud of radically-fluctuating free-deviant chaotrons which penetrate the synaptic relays. It's concatenated with a synchronous transport switch that creates a virtual tributary. It's focused onto a biobolic reflector and what happens is that the bike phases into hyperspace.

    Neon underglow lights?

    And I'll be looking for those hydraulic brakes. Maybe cap off a section of frame for an internal master cylinder...

    I'm thinking it's a clever way of hiding wiring for a taillight. :idea:

    Re: Stock Isn't - Paint!!

    Spent the morning painting all the pieces. And this afternoon laced up the front Wheel and mounted the tire, unfortunately the threads need to be a little longer on the rear spokes so that will have to wait. I have to find someone that can do that for me around here. :? Anyway laid down the black in Nason Single Stage Acrylic Enamel. Its much cheaper than urethane and should last plenty fine on a bicycle that wont be out baking in the sun all day everyday.

    Re: Stock Isn't - Paint And Wheel Lacing!

    Acrylic Enamel is lower grade Automotive Single Stage Solvent Based paint. It would be like 2 steps down from the Best. It is still better than say Maaco or Econo uses but, I wouldn't paint anything with it that would be continuously exposed to the Florida sun and elements.

    Other Good news I stared at my rear wheel for about 15 minutes and realized if I adjusted the spoke positions I didn't need shorter ones! :D :D :D :D
    So now both wheels are laced and trued tires mounted.
    I will start getting the bike assembled for pinstriping this week. I should have everything together minus my surprise Rod from the Earlier post finished up by the Weekend! :D

    Re: Stock Isn't - Pinstriping

    Got Started on the pinstriping today with some of the larger portions that will be done. Mixed up the colors and practiced it a little then went to it. It will take a few nights to get all the parts done. Should be able to assemble by the weekend.
