Im back and so is da Pope! I have it back from powdercoat and soon it will be back out again for pinstriping and sign painting for the lettering. The powder blue came out great. AND I have the last of my parts to be nickle plated back in my hands. Once the final touches to paint are added final assembly SHOULD go fairly smoothly.

I been having a hard time getting ahold of the pinstriper... No progress. Cant say I'd be doing much anyways being its about 110 F in the garage once the sun is hitting that side of the house. Heres what happened to the second set of pedals for the BTR configuration. As original the bike was almost un ridable. too short a distance between to pedal and butt. Which caused some interesting contortions when starting out on a ride. I took the wide pedals and cut em... Then had my local pro weld em back togather. I dont have pics just yet of the result post polish and nickel plating but they came out great. On the bike its much more comfortable and I have about 15 miles on these pedals prior to break down and plating: so they should hold up.

I was FINALLY able to get hold of the pinstriper / sign painter I wanted to use and he picked up the parts today; plus a few pics of the original so he would know what I wanted once he gets around to painting it. Should ( could ) be back in a week! Well see. Pics on its return.

Well... Bugs said it would take a week. 3 weeks later... RESULTS! I think he did a great job. For your sign painting and pinstriping needs in Mesa AZ Bugs Auto Art! NOW! Final assembly. And; its getting cooler so I can actually work on the dang thing.

Blue powdercoat by Affordable Powdercoat in downtown Phoenix. Really good job with FAST turnaround for the price quoted! Which if I remember was under $160 for frame /tank, rims and fork.
