The devil is in the details.

Painted the wheels black and of course it was too much black so I got out some white paint and a tester’s paint brush and spent three hours laying by the bike hand painting the lip of the rim which looks like a very thin white wall pinstripe around the wheel and I like it a lot

A little daytime action with the new wheel setup. About to build my side plates and paint the calipers.

Picked up Some sheet metal today and made the side plates and even though I painted them a matte finish black I really like them in stainless so I may just send them back down and clearcoat them I havenít decided.

One of the single biggest changes in person was getting all of that silver off the tree and the head.
