    I'll just say it simply... you are an artist on a righteous and rusty path.
    Keep building and posting pictures.

    Love it! Kinda kicks the haters to the curb when you create something this amazing from a frame most would have ignored as an "un-suitable candidate" for a classic motorized tribute bike. Well done sir! Rick C.

    Awesome... just plain awesome... you would never think something that nice started out as a small framed fat tire bike... but against all odds this awesome machine emerges...
    Do you have a special method to getting such a convincing patina? That thing looks like it sat in a barn for 50 years...

    Thanks for the nice words
    paint- heavy coat red primer, rub with dirt immediately, red paint immediately, more dirt. let dry a little, then final coat with more dirt.
    seems like dirt is the key ingredient.
    after that beat with tool of choice to get aged look.

    That made me laugh.

    Truly, you are an artist.
