The Endless Build: painting the tin

Here are a few shots after the base coat of blue metal flake has been done. All painting is being done by Anthony at Bridge City Cycles in Portland. (Who also did the fabrication).



Auto-focus cameras don't do very well on stuff like this:




Again, my phone/camera doesn't really get it, but the frame is a pearlescent blue, a bit lighter than the base coat of the bike. The goal is 'shades of blue', and there is a lot more to come. The frame is designed to compliment, not match, the tins, which you can see in this photo.



Thanks for looking!
Feel free to leave some comments. This "old school" section is pretty dead, I guess everyone got really old. :-)

The coffin was the smallest one Paughco made. But my frame is no stretch, and it still didn't fit. I was artfully chopped way down to fit and looks awesome. But it probably only holds a gallon of gas! So it's the "show" tank, and the peanut is the "go" tank. At some point I might do a Dakar tank out of an old Jerry can or something.

Rear fender does not match the radius of the tire and is to wide , I believe the frame paint would look better on the tins, but each his own. Just my 2 cents.
