I have to see about the $$$ end of it before I decide, but I do have One Shot gold paint for sure.
where will you attach the fire hose? :shock:
I really like the shape of the tank plate design. Really compliments the shape of the frame. Can't wait to see it come to fruition.
I just got word that my Fat Frank tires are in the mail tomorrow morning. Now I need to find a piece of flat steel for that tank plate!
The hardest part is catching the squirrel.
I guess you already got to that one :mrgreen:
Yeah. The bandages come off tomorrow. :lol:
I got my hands on a piece of sheet metal and managed to cut the tank plate. I just need to fabricate the brackets and drill some holes before I can paint it. I painted the front wheel today since i should get my tires in the mail this week. I'll have to sacrifice the rear wheel off of Victoria for this build since I can't seem to find one around here for now.
In true traditional fire apparatus fashion, I detailed the wheel with gold and chrome accents.
gold looks great gerry, like the spoke tips at the hub too, nice finished look
Very nice detail.
that wheel looks sweet :mrgreen:
Thanks for the great comments guys. I've finally went over a major hurdle today, I found a crank set! It may seem obvious, but around here an American sized crank is not that easy to find. I started this build with a bare frame that was stripped for the Hannan Rocket build(That frame is cooking as we speak), so I had to start from scratch. So now that my stress level is down, my motivation is up. :mrgreen:
I like those wheels. The nipples set them off nicely. The whole bike looks nice.
Chain Gang Lowriders came thru and I got my tires today. Wow, I knew they would look great, but the pictures don't make them justice. They look just awesome in the flesh. Anybody know how to clean these properly?
You might try some mild Ivory or equivilent liquid dishwashing detergent and water at first to clean them. Chemical based automotive detergents like Bleachwhite might have a negative effect on the stripes? Try a soft to medium bristle brush. The wheel and tire combination looks great! Thanks!!!
westleys bleech white and a brush, with tires up in the air. nice lookin shoes on that red !!!
i know they are hard to clean with that "dimpled" design. i think i just used good ol soap and scrubbed. lookin good by the way. i really gotta get crackin on mine
just so you know thats more than likely a recipe for disaster if you use it with the tires on the wheels(enamel paint im assuming...........) itll etch into the paint(dont ask me how i know this :roll: )
Thanks for the advice guys, dish soap it is.
