Any updates on the stem and whether you'll get it back soon?

Ok, just got the 'test-piece' today for the number of coats of paint to go on the stem :)

Graduating from 2 to 6 coats ....

it's a nice day, so hopefully he'll get on with the stem! :shock: It'll take while though with a few coats of silver then the blue and then the lacquer.

Finished article to be shown soon - I hope! :)

Cheers

Looking good.

The richness of the colour is great. I take it you're going for the 6 coats not 2?

Yes, the 6 coats should give a nice deep colour as on the frame :)

Stem painted and decals applied, so it's now done!

Unfortunately, with my health continuing to decline, this will, I think, be my last build for the forseable future. :(

I think it looks pretty 8) I hope y'all like it too :)

Thanks to anyone who has helped in anyway with this build. Special thanks must go to sinnerman though as he actually spotted the frame and fork for me...cheers mate :D

WOW!

That looks amazing, the stem sets it off perfectly.

Sad you won't be able to ride it :-(
Hopefully I can come to see it next month....

FANTASTIC! Glad you got rid of the gold blingy self extractors, they looked out of place on such a classy machine. Looks lovely, well done. 8)
