The last update y'all get before she's finished...
Here's a pic of the last step before paint, some time in the media blast cabinet.
I'm not going to elaborate on the final paint, but Roy gave me the colors white, olive green, yellow, and orange to work with.
I've got a good idea of what I want...I really hope he likes it (fingers crossed). Honestly, that is often the greatest cause of concern for me when someone give's me free reign. Hopefully my style is what drew them to me and we'll see eye to eye in the end
Hi Rody, no worries about the paint on my side
, that's the cool thing..... gave you free reign cause I've been riding black and grey frames all my live and think this one should be a real GROOVY .A bike you also can be proud of. Limited the colors to main Olive green and Off white with orange and yellow "highlights" only to keep you from going too wild (...like the HARDCORE you own)
. To anyone thinking about getting a frame build DO IT! Rody is an A+ communicator with a flexible mind and lots off know how. We exchanced about 15 to 20 mails before the final build (and I thought I knew exactly what I wanted from the start
) He's got a very good eye for detail and has loads of patience!! I know the waiting is hard but it's such fun to follow the proces on the Blog and see a bike arise from a pile off steel tubes, some machinery and a real artist
I would certainly go this way again even though I still don't have this one yet
ps I've written all this without Rody pointing a gun at my head
