I have enjoyed making this one. Was limited in time but got a lot done and ended up with something I really like.

Walkthru vid:



I started with a 40 Columbia I picked up from a forum member.

Had been previously painted with latex, over pitted rust. So I cleaned it up, painted it up and added some personal touches and customizations to make it my own.

Here are the results and picture walkthru.

Really like all your custom touches on this one. That rack adapter and the way it's off set is cool. Your seat pad, paint and paint-ina with the 'spicy' rust work topped it off nicely.

And, it hauls beer! What more could you ask for?! :grin:

Love the patina, glad it went to someone that brought it back to life.
