Crush1776 New Build

Discussion in 'The Garage' started by crush1776, Feb 20, 2011.

  1. Rattlecan flat this go around I'm afraid, but looks pretty damn good for what it is. Unfortunately my garage can't do 220V and I'm a too cheap to buy another compressor, so no fancy 2K paintstuffs on my "budget build."

    No refractory going on here yet, maybe someday when I buy that forging house I've been saving up for :D

    dO-bOy Woohooo!

    dang i reallllly like those fuel tanks.

  6. Thanks guys.

    I'm not a huge fan of color coordinated efforts unless that color happens to be black, I've been known to wear green shorts with a red shirt before ;)

    Any suggestions?

    Next up is painting the rear frame loop, wiring/ tail light mount, etc, then ride! I'll tear down and paint the frame and detail after the summer.
