Hey all

my little project is looking a little closer week to week.

some sneak pics ( will update as i go )

a couple more weeks and frame should be done. all components are here.

1991 frame and fork ( push fit BB ) originally gloss black with pink decals. paint was rough and i wanted to check the seat tube. this was done and all was cool, i striped the frame at work and over blasted with bead. off to the painter it goes. the fork is a taster off the finish.

custom freestyle paint job. im not even 100% sure what the final will be.

what people think?

Doug

"logging in" on this thread. I really want to see the progress on this build.

The paintjob on the fork looks really interesting! The Fat frames are great and it's fun when someone wants to try a repaint that is not original.

I guess that some of the purists dont like this but....as long as the original paint was gone anyway why not do a custom job on the repaint? It can always be painted back to original again in the future!

Looking forward to see the finished result!!

:-)
