Either I need to get out more or your bro does. Never heard of him(which don't mean shit) but that is some seriously nice paint. It's looks edible....

ya i know the tc hardtail.... dont remind me, but it was an easy and quick solution and after i finish all the metal work im going to do to the frame you will never be able to recognize it so oh well..

No new progress on the tank, but i did get ALL my mounts welded on and got my girder cut down, and got all my new hardware for the fork and al my new bearings...

Gonna give the tank another day or two to breathe before we start laying on more... stay tuned!!

pulled the motor back out and stripped it down to the frame, i will media blast and seal the frame this weekend, then start moulding it out smooth as butter... ahhhhh silky smooth
