Old Number 16

Pics below will open larger.Just click on them!

Well I had to go out to Zeke's today to take some pieces out for paint and to check things out on Rick's bike. I'm glad I did, and as it turns out he was right in the middle of painting some of the fish scales on the bike. So here is a little teaser of what is to come. A lot of unique panels, seems to me he said 16 all together, and all to be pinstriped yet as well..ha ha.

We wet the front fender down with water just to get an idea of what it would look like when the clear goes on. Nice!!

Here are some small touches to the rear fender.

And here is the frame all molded around the neck and other areas. Gives it that pro finish when the time is taken to do these small extra spots. Dark cobalt blue with metal flake mixed in. The flash doesn't do it any justice but it should look brilliant in the sun light.

So there we go...got my taste today and can't wait to see the finished product. Soon be the fun part....assembly.....well back to all the other small things that have to be done so she is ready to go together when the frame comes back home. Stay Tuned!!
