I applied stripper to a Forrest Green frame and then pressure washed it shortly after to achieve the paint effect. Yours truly then hand painted the head badge and finally applied 5 coats of clear to the entire frame.

And finally slap the canti's back on. It was stolen before I could finish it. During the short time I was able to ride it, it was a complete blast.

It was stolen from my apt. building the first night after I moved in. Woke up to find them gone. There is "bike garage" room with a ton of racks ground level and I had it and my Flying Dutchman in there (the rest were in my apt. thankfully.)

That's a shame

I feel you, especially for the Flying Dutchman. It's happened to a lot of us. You live and learn. Doesn't amaze me anymore what fools will go after nowadays.

It was my time I guess. I

It was my time I guess. I had gone a long time without getting one stolen.
