Got a little paint on the frame today. Sadly I have two bubbled up spots and they are both on the top tube. I am out of red paint so it looks like I will be sanding and adding a little black to the frame.
I have had a setback in the wheel department. I had ordered a black 24" freewheel for the rear and it is not coming. Not now or ever. Stupid Ebay sellers. So change in plans. Instead of a singlespeed I am going to paint a 24" rim with a cassette that I had laying around. I will be using this sweet push and pull, two cable grip shifter. I also got the crank- sprocket and the seatpost painted. The tank will be complete and mounted tomorrow.
Wooden tank is done and mounted. The image including all the ridiculous shading have a 3D feel cause they were burned in by a local tattoo artist. I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out. In the interest of time I have decided to leave the red paint as is. Still think I might cover the bubbles with something but in the meantime this is the paintjob I am stuck with. I messed up my valve stem so I need to get another 24 tube before I can chain it up. Also have to figure out what to do with the cablesComplete assembly and pics are just around the corner.
