I have to say that is a great job especially if you did that yourself, how you do that? and it's just hand can spray job?, nice design/colours and I like it. :)

that looks too cool for school mate!! ex biker why the half link and a tensioner surely one negates the need for the other?


Hmm not to sure to be honest, I think maybe its a case of the tensioner was there so i just worked round it, Also known as laziness :oops: See now i'm going to have to try it without the tensioner :lol: :lol:

I did it myself with 3 rattle cans, outside in the autumn sunshine! Only took an hour or so.

Happy to paint frames for anyone, but timescales would just piss everyone off- I'm so busy at the moment I cannot find time for my own builds (or to eat come to that!).

Hoping to have Sunday afternoon off work to make some progress on Frankenbike and the Pace but suspect there will be family comitments :roll:

Thanks for all your kind comments guys :wink:

Si

looks good, almost a Groovy cycles style paint. Feel realy bad about having my franken bike powder coated in black.
