Default Re: Tortuga Bikes Home Made Long Bike

I'm liking the long bike theme. I'm kicking around ideas for a new build and the boartracker thing is so overdone that I really want to push the boundries for something long and low. Did you bend the tubing yourself? I need to get a tubing roller so I can fabricate my own frame. My idea involves a motorcycle engine in a handmade stretch frame build with a suicide shifter. As far as your frame paint color, I myself would go for something non-typical. Your frame is too nice of work to just put a black paint job on. I would consider clear powdercoat over the bare steel or maybe a rust color patina finish.
