I have just put a pic of this on a Adidas Collectors Forum ( hope u don't mind ) . They fooking love it. Top build fella. :daumenhoch:

No probs. Thanks for sharing it. I'd love to send a pic to adidas, and would get a buzz seeing it in one of their ad campaigns. I'd probably get a court order and destruction notice from them though!

A unique custom bike.  It is lovely. :smitten:

Did you use etch primer under the white on the stem?  I am going to paint some parts, stem, BB cups and headset cups, white and have been told to use etch primer.

Hi. I just used regular car trade primer in grey. The same with the white. Trade gloss white. Trade clear lacquer. There has been a bit of paint loss in the semi circular grooves where the clamp meets the bars. I think this was my fault for not tightening up the bolts enough, and the bars moved, causing some cracking/paint loss.

I'm sure superbike dan would be able to give you some expert advice on prep work. Good luck  :daumenhoch:

I think it was Joff that told me about that one when I had just started getting the parts together for my build. I wasn't aware of it before then. There was a pic of it posted up on my original resto thread for this, but I deleted it as it was getting too long.  I really love the cut-out gusset, but the rest looks a bit lazy. Dare I blow my own trumpet and say mines better?  :-[ Go on then. Mines better!  :D I wonder if that one will sell at that price?

**I've had quite a few likes/reposts of this bike on Instagram recently, so thought i'd give the resto thread a bump for any newbies to  :radbmxsmilie: who may not have seen it**

**apologies to long time radsters who maybe sick to death of this thread/build** - Move along, there's nothing new to see for you lot  :daumenhoch:
