nice,

i will be painting my lawwil next month or so. have some questions.

do you have the dimension of the blue "arrow" op front? i don't know how big it needs to be.

is the black line between the yellow and the blue painted or is it a decal?

is it powdercoated or normal paint?

grtz, danny

Looks good, is that a new headtube??

I think ended up with a spare set of decals if you are interested.


Thanks Martin! I look at your builds and it seriously gives me inspiration to rebuild like any of yours! Head tube is courtesy of Chris DeKerf. He re-inforced the headtube with Ti cups. There were some stress cracks, as they were quite common as you know, on the head tube. I took it to him and he gave me a couple of options. I already sourced a set of decals from gil_m.

Good question! I am not the painter as this was done by Toxik Design Labs here in Richmond, British Columbia. He's a former painter @ Rocky MOuntain. I think the best person you should ask is someone on the forum like mr_ship, ameybrook, sinnerman, yeti-man, Silverfish and lastly mkozaczek. Those are the people on the forum that inspired me on this build. Their threads are a goldmine of info. I am sure they can help you out better than I can! Oh and lastly....powdercoating is for lawn furniture....I had it done the normal paint method.
