crunch time

so i got a lot done today on my bike. bondo, sanding, primer, (auto)paint, gloss. i'm truly lucky to have a friend with some pro-tools/setup to help me out with this. i paid him in short-stack Buds, a sixer of pbr, and my truly genuine comedy. tight!

black + gloss frame


everything is painted and glossed and ready to go. hopefully i can find time this week to get that e50 finished. i still need to find some red bmx pedals and get the graphics done on the tank. i think i might still need a stator. probably some other shit i'm forgetting too. i rode an old ass vintage beach cruiser with massive ape hangers to the store while the paint was drying tonight. it was pretty sick, to say the least.
