Long Time No See

At this point, I'm fully recovered from my medical issue, and trying to get back to my life. Finally starting to get serious here.

I have the wheels nearly ready to go. Bought  all new wheel bearings, polished the brake plates, and I just have to get them trued up, and they're ready for tires.

I also took one of the frames in and had it powder coated. Red. This is the Interceptor, and since it's not going to be anywhere near original, I figure I can play around with the colors on it.

The fenders and other sheet metal parts will be done in a silver-grey for contrast.

Here's a photo of the frame parts I had powder coated. The picture turned out looking very orange for some reason. There's definately an orange cast to this color, but not as bad as it looks.

A little progress. Let's see if I can gain some momentum on this thing now.


  1. I'm going to try again to post a comment. can't get how to do this. They keep coming back to me. Love the color on your frame. Looks brighter than mine. Good luck getting it done. Will be starting another soon. ERC

  2. Looks like you got a comment posted this time, Roger.

    I wasn't expecting the frame to be as bright as it turned out. A bit more orange to it.

    Hope you don't mind my using the photo of your beautiful bike.

  3. Don't mind at all, I'm flattered. ERC
