    With all the steel parts at the sand blaster, I thought I'd keep myself occupied making some billet pedal blocks to replace the nasty skummy ones.

    Most definitely! When will those be available/mass produced for us to purchase :)
    I'll take a few pair and maybe a pair anodized in red?

    Picking up parts from the blaster tomorrow and off to the spray booth....getting anxious about what the final result will look like.

    Finally! No she isn't finished but will be back from the paint shop in a couple hours! Everything laid out ready to be thrown at the bike...hopefully things stick. Beyond that, some final machining to do on the generator linkage jockey lever and a seatpost.

    Wow! You are seriously organized! I think I should be taking notes, I usually spend half my time trying to find that last ball bearing...

    Ok, so bike is back from paint and nearly finished. Seeing what is near enough to the final result has inspired me to change the name from the "Black Widow" to "Red Velvet". Proper pics to come soon!

    The creme cheese icing tires are perfect for the red velvet color!
