    Whatever's clever. I've been looking at those frames for a few years now. Always thought about a '70s chopper vibe with a king and queen seat, extended forks and a monster sissybar.

    I changed my idea regarding paint and decided to go with something I've never done before. I thought it would be fun to do some flames, and so I taped[​IMG]
    And then I got my rattlecans ready and sprayed[​IMG]
    For my first try I gotta say I'm pretty happy with the results

    Thanks, but i wasnt really happy. I only had the flames on the very front of the frame. So i sanded it taped off more flames... Everywhere, except the stays. This should be fun

    I bought this springer for $5 at a swap with nothing planned for it at the time. I couldnt pass it up, although it did have some homemade etchings on it[​IMG]and[​IMG] they would be pretty cool if they did both sides i think, but not like this.

    some rust[​IMG]but with a little bit of sanding and a couple touches of a wire wheel on my drill and I got a cool brushed metal effect. I like it.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Thanks, i followed that up with wiping on some boiled linseed oil so the metal should stay protected

    So after painting sanding and repeating I finally got it ready. I even assembled it and took it to cyclefest. Unfortunately, it caught quite a nasty gash on the top tube. So I cut it off with a razorblade and saw this as an opportunity to learn more about painting flames. So i sanded, taped, and painted some more. Then I started wet sanding to reveal the layers underneath. I think Im starting to really like this dimensional flame paint job. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    I even blended the razorblade slices in seamlessly with the flame.

    Not bad for my first, second, third, and forth tries at painting flames

    This is so '70s psychedelic, it may just need a bellbottom-proof chainguard.
