You need to paint that rust bucket!!!!!
Start your RRB Build Off diaries here!
Good idea.I'll try and put something together for everyone once the build off finishes.Thanks
Thank you, I'm glad you like it.
Had a good weekend, did lots of little bits to the bike. I finished up the back wheel and got the tyre on, with just a few scratches, but they painted in ok and kind of adds to the look anyway Then I gave the tyres another coat of black to cover up the logos so they now don't show.
Quite pleased with how they look.
I have also been continuing with painting the chainring and stem.
Textured paint going on the Stem
Painting on the matt black on both.
I started on the stain today.Just need to finish them off with some brown for the rusty bits tomorrow.
I thought you'd all like a little pic of how the bicycle stands at the moment.I have had a 50's schwinn truss rods set for a while, which I would like to use.I will need to do a little custom bracket or extension to make them fit, so they are only bolted on at the top for the moment but just to give you an idea of how it will look. Not sure if i'll paint them yet or maybe i'll just add some stain or something to dull down the chrome a bit.
It's coming along, still got lots to do!
No it's not bent.I think it's just the way that it's been made.
Did a few little things today.Just finished off painting and lacquered the chainring and stem.Both have turned out nice.
Added a bit more rusty brown paint
Then gave them a couple of coats of the lacquer.
Dry and ready for fitting
Also made a start on the crank.Gave it a sand, so hopefully get some paint on that tomorrow.
Can't believe how cool this looks! Awesome work
Thanks so much! Much appreciated!
