Hi everyone, well here goes! I have been collecting little parts over the last couple of months and lots of ideas running through my head. In past builds I have always spent a lot of time on the paint, but this year i'm going all bare metal! I have always wanted to do a bare metal bike and what better time to build one than in a build off! I have a straight bar frame which is just sitting waiting and crying out to be used, so I am going with that one. Here are a few pictures of some of the items I have to start with. Not sure if I will use them all yet, but just for ideas. Charlie So the fork is off and the bicycle is now in bits ready for paint removal! More updates soon!
