Ten coats of paint!

TenCoatsOfPaintWhile fitting the tubes and getting down to bare metal, I noticed that this bike has ten coats of paint; thick paint. It looks like tree rings. The finish is really nice with a lot of depth but I’m not sure it’s worth the extra weight.

This project is moving along. I’m still fitting the tubes which is really time consuming. There is lots of grinding and filing to get everything to fit. It’s coming together with the rear triangle almost ready to weld up. Photos of that should be in the next post.
