Yeah, I've got a lot of builds to catch up on, and not a ton of time to do it. Won't stop me from trying though! I think that sculpture block stuff is super cool! I'll have to try that stuff out once I've exhausted my wood supply. Minimal art skills my butt; you sculpted a tank out of a material I hadn't heard of before, slicked it with bondini, smoothed it to perfection, then expertly painted some tasteful scallops over that smooth satin black paint job! If that's not expert-level art, I don't know what is!Thank you @Bike from the Dead for ripping through my build thread! I think a lot of things fell in to place for this build, with parts had and parts found. I’m glad you like the tank! Other than minimal art skills and an eye for symmetry, my talents are limited. I got super lucky to find the material for my tank base. Sculpture Block. The process went smooth and I was excited to share it, hoping others would try doing something similar down the line. Somewhat affordable way to make a tank. I dig what you are doing as well. Learning a lot from watching your processes for developing patina. We still have a lots of little things to do. I thought my 3 speed wheel build would stop the build in its tracks, but luck turned for the better. Hope to see you at the finish line.
Thanks! Looks like we're both learning how to work with new materials to breathe new life into our bikes. I'm currently trying to get my coaster brake rebuilt, and I'm a bit nervous. Never done one of these Komet Super hubs before, and I'm hoping my 2nd ever coaster brake rebuild turns out right. I hope I'll see you at the finish line too! Your bike is just too cool!
