Well Zeke came by today with some goodies for me. Finally the paint is here and I love it. It is definatly a flash back to the 70's! Once again he has come through with just the type of thing I was looking for. Everything outlined in a silver pin stripe to set it apart in its own panels, yet keeping the dark blue background consistant through out the bike.
Mutiple panel of different designs that will take you back to that time frame. The number 16 is laid in with Gold Leaf and has its own special look on the tank. Sweet...
Now as she takes shape it is classic. It has been truly fun to build this old school looking bike, with some modern improvments...ha ha
So here is what she will look like from the rear but the tail light has to go on and black mini tail lights will finish it off. And we ain't done yet.....
