Finish Lines

December 5th, 2010

I don’t have time for steel shopping for a couple of weeks, and with all the deconstruction done I’m at a bit of an impasse. I want my finished bike to look at least as good as a commercial model so I’ve been thinking about the finish. Ferrari yellow is nicely ironic (and high-visibility) for the main frame, with the rest classic black.

I’m still thinking about the head tube badge. To get the designs onto the bike I’ll print them on decal sheets and apply them before the clear-coat.
