    So I'm putting a little bit more black on the trailer today, when the sun comes up. It's flat black, but it's just an undercoating anyways. The whole trailer will be reflecting, as gloss black. :)

    So I'm thinking of making a video with my laptop, just of me driving on my street, so you can see and hear the bike and trailer in action, when I have the videos uploaded, I'll post a link. ;) Thank you all for enjoying my build. I'm proud of her, and even more proud of myself, seeing how much feedback I'm getting for my insane ideas. :) STAY YOUNG PEOPLE! NEVER BE AFRAID TO DREAM! :) Keep em rubber side down folks. Oh, and I figured out how to flip the pics my macbook takes, so I'll repost, in proper picture format. enjoy.

    and here is the trailer, with a bit more black. Like I said tho, it's flat black. Still another two coats of gloss black, then a bunch of urethane for waterproofing. :) The whole trailer will shine like the rims on the trailer. :) lovin every minute of it. ha ha

    I am seriously considering the gold flake on the rims, yes. I think it will complete the look. Match it all up, when I did the bike rims, I did two coats of black under the three coats of gold, to give it a dark undertone. I'll do the same with the trailer. I'm pretty picky. lol. But it will be worth it. :)
