    is powdercoat allowed? it says in the rules that the builder must do the paint himself/herself.

    isn't this a "rat rod" buildoff?

    hmm, methinks me smells a troll.

    I've built almost everything on this ride, with help from friend's who are bike freak's, and they are keeping it in check to the perid of time 1952,
    I sanded the rim's and the paint did not take to far gone, so the powder coating was the only option, the spokes were so rusted that when I picked up the frame the rim's stayed on the ground,
    but I like to use all the original part's that came with the bike's I build, give's them new life and any body can buy off the shelf part's but to have a one of a kind bike is like a master peice of history, So I did trade some ape hanger's for the powder coating thou, does that count for cheap?
    It also said keep it Fun, right, Wow this is a hard room.
    And now for the weather report from So-Do Seattle this is where I live just south of the Safe Co Feild,
    It's snowing........... AUGH!!!! first the rain then the Snow? next cat's and dog's........... Well after the sand blasting was done I think I will not do that again, the frame is so rough, so sanding would have been a better way to go, But one good thing is that I found two cracks in the brazing that had I not found it would have been a lot of work for nothing.
    Well a little about me, ~TW~
    I'm a Skid King [vintage bikes] is what I do for fun, Love them, ride them with pride, I show bikes when ever I can and talk bikes as often as one can, I love to swap meat when ever I can my front room looks like a small bike shop, it gets me in trouble at time's,
    So that's about it for me,
    Well chat soon..
