Dear Diary: Just painted the forks and chainguard -gloss black and it looks good. Just painted the frame satin black and I don't like it. The dark, dark grey primer looked a better color for the bike. So back to the primer the frame goes. I guess I should of never second guessed and used "flat" paint for the frame, instead of the trendy satin stuff.
Here I go again posting pictures of just PARTS! I promise to have some whole bike pics soon. Snapped this pic on the way out the door this morning. I tried to create my own stencil for this chainguard, but wimped out and had a decal made for $5.00. Sorry for the crappy cellphone pics.
Nothing real exciting. Stole a rear wheel from another bike and painted it. I have a wealth of good front wheels and alot of bad back wheels. Borrowed Clothespin's technique of masking off the spokes.
Got bored waiting for paint to dry so I started a new bike. 3 spd freewheel on a coaster frame, but I think the side pull brakes will mount up. The seat mounting needs some rear support, but I like how far back it sits. It lost one of the springs so I flipped the rails and bolt to the frame.
