|The rear sprocket was sandblasted and then powdercoated in a
steel color, and we wrestled a 21" Avon Speedmaster onto
the rim by hand so we would not damage the powdercoating, no worries!
The rear wheel was a different story, because just before we powdercoated
the rim (Light Ivory) we discovered that the rim had 3 valve holes.
|Ofcourse we could have welded 2 of them shut but we decided
just for fun to leave them and put 3 valves in the wheel to mess
with peoples heads, haha. We made two fake valves and then also
decided to make 4 of the knurled nuts that keep the valves in
place so that all 4 valves would look the same. The rear tire
is an 18"Firestone Champion Deluxe by the way.
We had chosen a Turqoise Green color for a lot of the other
parts and decided to test it on the fork trees. Aluminium plugs
were made to cover the areas where we did not want powdercoating,
the trees were sandblasted and our friend Elvis powdercoated
them for us
The color seems quite extreme but together wth the Ivory
we think it looks kinda cool!
