This bike was the latest addition to my ever growing collection of bikes. It started out with the purchase of a leather-esque seat that was on clearance sale. Once I had that bike, I realized that I wanted something a bit more classic looking. Because I had two bikes already (one for the weekends, and one for the commute), I took my time purchasing parts for this one. Thankfully, because it’s a single speed, it’s cheaper, and much easier to put together. I did this one over the Christmas break while visiting family in Arizona.
This is less of an entry about what I did, and more just a collection of pictures. I will mention, however, that I used an enamel paint that specifically said not to use a primer. The paint dries hard, and is quite protective, though I did also put a clear coat finish over the whole thing, as a good solid ding will scratch the paint.
