Make no mistake, I wouldn't sell this bike to anyone as it is at best a slapped together piece of junk. But it rides very smoothly and I love it, which in this case comes second to my health and safety.
Talking about slapped together, the paint was just sprayed on after a very light wipe down using a half dirty rag. Want to know what happens when you don't prep your surface properly? Take a look at the picture and the answer is pretty obvious.
So step one is done. The bike is pieces, I gathered some parts, found my tools, well most of them, have a design in mind and the weather is nice, because I'm outdoors you know so that is important. Next will be painting primer red so that I can start building on a , temporarily, clean canvas.
|Taking it apart|
|Grease and bearings fared well.|
|Oups! A case of measure, cut once...measure again, cut twice.|
|Paint chips all over the frame shows the very low degree of surface prep. The new paint job won't be much better. :)|
|My chaintool is still missing in action.|
|Some of the parts I'll be using, or not.|
|Definitely going for a full wrap rear fender.|
Until next time, ride safe and Godspeed.
