Default Re: The Flying Pigeon

Well, finally found a supplier ( local ) that carries the 1 shot paint I need for the stripes.
It seems that no one paints stripes any more..... Go figure...
I did get started on the shifter.
I had this dilemma: I needed to find some material that wouldn't look to new for the bike. Due to the fact that I have decided to fallow MapBikes advice and not replate the bright parts. Sage advice...........
The dilemma is that I hate rust ( I have a phobia ) ha ha ha....
I have no , (shall we say ) aged material in my shop....
I ended up finding an old rusty piece of 1/8" plate in the bushes next to the city shops.
Here is what I came up with so far.....

Once polished letter'd and painted I think it will work...

( the fillips screw will be replaced with a stove bolt )
Happy Trails......
