your bike looks

your bike looks great.
really impressed with the custom paint job you did. looks LEGIT!
my only suggestion would be to switch your stem for a silver one
just for aesthetic purposes and maybe upgrade that crankset
but then again...its YOUR bike!
enjoy it!


I know that it's possible to do a very clean looking job using only spraycans. And yours is obviously nice. My issue is that spraycan paint tends to chip more easily than powdercoat or whatever industrial job.
I would love to hear about your experience, the stuff you used, the whole process (primer, paint, clear lacquer, I guess) and how the paint ages.
The bike is sweet as well in all its simplicity!

Rustoleum Hammered Paint

I sand the frame down using 600 grit sandpaper.
No Primer since that type of spray paint didn't require it
4 coats over a period of 6 hours

This is my 4th or 5th bike that I've done this to and the paint holds up really well. Chips are gonna happen and powder coating does take more abuse but it's cheap. Total cost was under 10 Dollars and I still have extra paint left over to spray over.


very clean paint.

Hot Rods don't have four doors, and when they burn out the rear tires smoke, not the f*cking front tires.

Kids these days.
