All parts have arrived and just picked up the frame from the powder coaters :D
In my first build I just used rattle can paint on the front triangle. Now I had the whole thing powder coated
as well as the stem (black) handlebars (neon yellow) and crank arms (shown below)

More pics soon, gona use the big camera to get some decent pics

More pics..

Amplifier seems an unjust name... Perhaps the "Mongoose Radium Amp-2" would be more fitting.. :D

Nice choice of colour!
Looks like the seatpost is bent in the last couple pics?

Havent noticed, but now that you mentioned it im definetly going to check it out.
I have heard that seatposts on amps had tendencies to bend like bananas.
Thought i was safe with a ti one

That's insane.... I love it.

the Floro Yellow looks as mad as a box of frogs


Is it me or does the powder coat have more of a citrus Zing to it compared to the paint

I'd love to see one picture of the finished bike against a tame background so it has nothing competing for your attention...... and then I'm gonna have it as wallpaper on my P.C.
Love your art work but find my eye is, in some cases more drawn to it than anything else

Top work on both scores
:D

Absolutely gorgeous!
Only thing that's making my ocd senses tingle is that I like my stem and port to be the same color, but that's personal preference.
Well done for heading outside the box!
