A man must do, what a man must do - Hi friends - this is not sooo much work. At the moment i work also on five bicycles for my shop project ( all old style - with allot of old and polished aluparts from Campagnolo - see the pic).
I blast, grind and polish old steelframes , new chrom, paint an so on. On the pic you can see a detail after chroming and basic paint. I build all wheels myself - sometimes with very special spokepattern. So if have no time for TV, bar, smoking, football and hanging arround. But some days the feeling comes up, that my life is to short for all the things i want to do. We will see -
Next weekend i weld the frame, go once more again in the blastcabin and spray first basic filler. I will fill up all cracks on the frame, so that the surface is complet smouth and looks like one part - nice work for outside ! I paint the frame in "cooper orange" - maybe with a matt surface.
I never can work on only one thing !!!

Hi smoky - nice , that you like it . Yesterday i weld the frame and bend it a bit at the end. I cut away some ugly parts. Today i work on the seat to fix it. Next week the frame goes again in the blastcabin and than the "long way" to filler the frame for a smouth surface starts. Some pics will come.

Only short update. I paint some parts for testing in "copper orange" with gloss surface - not flat colour like i think about, cause is more action to take care about it. I think it looks like i like it : outside the "paintstream" !
With the polish tank and black motor i mean it`s an outstanding combination - and at the end i can change it very
fast - only some hours and fresh colour !!

Update RACE DIVA. I bend and weld the frame - rearend is now perfect - seat fits better than before, but i must
weld a strong bridge under it. Next step is once more again sandblasting, before i prepare the frame for the
paintjob.

Hi Toecutter,
look on the first site - i will take a "copper orange" in high gloss finish. Like i write - against the "paintstream" cause
most bikeframes are black. But it is not a big thing to repaint the frame if it looks ugly.

Hi guys - it`s very easy ! I sleep only one night at the end of the month, and my watch show me 48 hours per day - that`s it.
