Nice frames & paint. I agonised over black & white????? Took the option my frame was going to be too small for the right effect. Thanks for your interest :D

While waiting :( for the Hetchins to be born I've made another tool bag slightly larger to take 2x tubes;2x CO2 etc.
This one has more ornate buckles,
Image
As the head badge I had could not be used on the bike I decided to add it to the bag :D

If any member would like something personal made just PM me.

oh noes! *watches dubrat run off and double check all measurements* 8)
you could always put ape hangers on it if it's wrong. grow a mullet. take up smoking. have 5 kids. paint it with a 3" brush. lose a front tooth and spit a lot.

Hhmmmmm, very sharp around the lugs, I can see why he spent 5 hours masking mine.
Very nice!! Be sure to show us the finished deal.

Here it is :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Cloudy this morning so the true colour is washed out,
Image

I was worried that the colour may have been too modern, but I love it, he painted the whole bike in ivory, then the Candy Apple over. He (Joe) had poetic licence to finish the frame as he saw fit.
Image

Detail is sensational,
Image

Started building today, although I'll be slow, have lots of commitments over the next two weeks, so hopefully my leg will be rideable by then.
Image
Joe is a legend, took 3 hrs to pick it up :wink:
