To quote Rody

Quote:
The bike turned out pretty spiffy. I would have to say that I like the build/paint/overall look as one of my top 5 to come out of the shop. The paint took just a bit over 27 hours of labor (lots of layers of airbrushing, masking, and blending) and I am pleased with the result. Should get some looks in Texas.

The NHBS - national handbuilt bicycle show happens in Austin Texas right about now. GroovyCycles have a 'booth' or stand as we call it in the UK.

Wacky colour scheme I like it. I don't want to know the price at all, really I don't but, do you get charged for the full 27hrs of paint labour is what I'm thinking?

Lovely bike! :)
