I started a new build last week that will be a bit more of a challenge, but is off to a good start. It's a panther style frame with a aluim gas tank, 12 gauge spokes,white wall tires, I hope nobody throws up with my color plans of a old fashioned blue green aqua with bright white inserts on tank and tool box. logos will be copper leaf on the tank and then with copper accents thrown in on the engine, headlight, etc for contrast and old vintage feel. All rolling on a harmonizing light pastel aqua Rims. i guess it wont be for everyone but it will be different. I'm doing all the painting and copper details myself this time to save money. I have just been painting small stuff and mocking up the bike and took a few Picts to show my mini progress. Planning on getting all the details done before any assembly. The frame and tank will be painted last. All I've done mechanically so far is pound in the bearing races for the front fork. I just lined the tool box with a synthetic leatherette. Ill post some more Picts this afternoon if I find some time.
