Keep a diary of your latest build here.
This really bad paint has finally triggered an idea for a theme. Airstream!!! I have an Airstream camper so this is a natural. the frame will be silver. the chain guard will be riveted on as will anything else that would normally bolt or screw on. I have some aluminum panels that I am going to use as a tank. I will rivet them together. I'll need to find some Airstream blue for an accent color, perhaps some scallops. I'm pretty psyched.
here's my trailer: 1973 Overlander
I love the airstream idea.Right before the Tour De Fat I mistakenly picked up a can of aluminum paint thinking it was gray.I toyed w/ the Airstream idea and even had some pink flamingos which I thought would fit right in.I hope you go with this concept,it would be really cool.
Thanks for the support. I am going with it. I just hope I can pull it off.
two of these will help
That is a very cool concept.Those trailers remind me of the movie "Whats eating Golbert grape?"
Do those trailers have buyable taillights that could possibly be put on your bicycle?It would be cool to have it metal with painted rivets,or maybe the real thing.Good luck!

^^^ The tail light assemblies are pretty large. this is best pic I could find of the assy:
I plan on making a tank with several panels and lots of rivets.
I've been a little busy working on my and Boy's bike. Here is mine with an idea of what the frame color will be:
you need a set of these alloy fenders
they are off a womens bike so they have holes drilled in them for skirt lacing but you could use rivets
Nice fenders. I am anti-full fender on this bike, though. I have one fender for the front already. Pretty sure I'll have a naked rear tire though.
"oh. I'm sooo con fuuused"
homer has hit overload
I decided to have my frame sand blasted. The company that will do the powder coating of my Airsteam wheels said he could blast my frame for $25. so I dropped it off this morning. I have already wire wheeled the fork. It looks sweet. I really want to leave it natural and clear coat it as is, but I'm not sure it will go with my vision. I began bending some aluminum for my riveted tank just now. I have a good idea as to how I will work this out. It might actually work. here are some photos:
