Digging up old threads I see. Yeah, the purple nipples were a mistake.

This bike has had like three owners since I had it.

Haha, yes, before I make a bike posting, I'll see what has been done like it, to learn and give feedback....then I'll post mine.

Wanted to see what was out there of the Fat City Wicked variety :)

So this is the project disaster you refer to in another thread?

Yeah. I tried and failed at replicating the paint to Kandy Wild Cherry. It looked cool still, but I was just never happy with how the bike ended up. This took a lot of time to finish, and I just remember being more frustrated with it than anything.

Probably the bike I regret letting go the least.

I had one like that, but bailed before I got nearly as complete as yours. Still a good looking bike, you're doing quite well if that is one of your worst.

I always liked it. It was unique (while staying true to the vintage), and that adds a little to the project in my mind.
