I used a fan next to the window again, gets the dust out right away. That's a lot of frame to clean up. I noticed some pitting and a few dings so it's not going to be perfect.

Handlebars and a couple other things also got flapped.

The first coat of black went on already, and to hide the pitting and dents I might do a gold splatter. I haven't yet decided and I could also add some silver to the splatter. The handlebars and seat could match up to the frame.

The wife was gone for the morning at Zumba, so I had the garage to clear coat the parts. We remodeled and upgraded our place and I added a industrial fan in the garage where the wife throws parties. It gets hot and humid all day long in the summer so it's needed.

but sounds like a Cessna.
It's all set! I added a cellphone holder, bell, and mirror. I used a couple zipties hidden under the seat for the cables.

In keeping with the Lazyboy theme, maybe it needs a drink holder and snack tray. :dance2:
It's going to need two people to get it up the stairs for a test ride. I rolled across the shop, the steering angle is a problem.

I weighed it this morning, 43 lbs. The seat plate is the heaviest part.
Since I know the angle of the headtube will make it difficult to ride, and it will be my exercise bike with that seat, I'm calling it finished. I already tried it on the trainer and it rides well, and I rode it once across the shop, so it's a real bicycle. I don't know which pic I'll use as the finished one yet.
