Let's see who can build the coolest rat!
After seen many great bikes from other builders, I thought I should also try to build one myself.
Here's what I found:
Rust, multiple layers of paint, mud and a comfortable seat. What else can you need from a bike!
This kind of beach cruisers became popular here in Argentina since the 90s, and this bike in particular was made by a company called "Reynoso Hnos." (that would be something like Reynoso Bros.). I don't know anything about this company but after a fast Google search I found out they broke some years ago...
Anyway, I haven't decided what to do with this bike yet. I've been seeing many, many pics of build offs, customs and off the shelf bikes for inspiration. Meanwhile, I wanted to show you at least the original bike.
Sorry about my english, I hope you understand me.
I like it that way as well!
like said above..
maybe some Silver Ghost Flames!
with a feature Color on the Wheels.
That's right, I used a grinder with a whire wheel. I also liked the result, the metal shine is amazing! It really surprised me.
Here's a problem: How do I keep it this way? Just with a clear coat? Will that stop rust?
I would think clear coat would be fine.
This bike http://locojoe.com/bikeblog/pages/salt_ ... erendipity[image]=800
is bare metal. I almost think he oils it or something though.
Clean it again( with an Aromatic Solvent..like Laquer Thinner ) before you Clear coat it!
I think it's going to look GREAT in Ratty old wire wheeled Metal.
