Thinking on the base colors to start with there. Would be cool to reproduce the patinas of the silver over red..Mmm, badge is ok but that fork is too shiney new looking. Maybe with the gloss knocked off and some faux crust.
I have slime in the tires, and have a shields on the tire side, and a cut tube wrapped on the wheel side. Had one cactus thorn come thru the shield and still didn't go flat.Wonderful pics and a great bike. Do you do anything special to prevent the inevitable tire punctures in desert riding?
