I said it already Scott, but you freaking killed it. I love, I mean LOVE this build. Its not one particular piece though.

Usually I look at a bike and think of the ways to make it a long bike, but that would totally fuck this up.

What is the paint color and how did you come across it? Does it look different in real life?

Thanks Jaws.

The paint:
  • My painter closed his doors a couple of years ago and finding someone new that I like is almost impossible. Price, quality, time frame, and must be local.
  • Paint is an added expense and time suck b/t travel, coordination, waiting, etc. and god forbid one needs to modify anything afterwards........
  • Invariably i spend a ton on a fancy paint job only to start messing it up immediately.
  • I like to build bikes (as well as ride them), and I must sell to move on to the next. Its kinda a waste to spend a bunch on paint that a future owner might not want at all or to shoulder the cost at time of sale.
  • lastly, as a buyer, I appreciate knowing what's under the paint (welds, cracks, repairs dents, or lack there of). So, since there's no fancy paint, there's no bondo, and there's nothing hiding; and any buyer knows exactly what's there .
In light of the above, I started just going with simple, cheap solutions. Any future owner doesnt have to shoulder the cost, and he/she can change it without feeling like they wasted a bunch of money.

So, it's rattle can engine paint (supposedly gas and oil resistant). It's Pontiac blue, but it's a metallic version. There ya go, there's my secret.

Scott, I also really dig your bikes and the vision you have for them. A lot of bikes come and go on here, but I still miss this one, and it pops into my mind quite frequently...
