Few weeks in.

Few weeks in.

Re: Few weeks in.

I like everything but the seat.

Re: Few weeks in.

Yeah a new one is on the list. I had to get rid of the huge stock guy. This was a quick and easy fix to get me sitting really low. I also just added another coat of stain so its pretty much black now. I will hit it with one more coat and I will post some updated photos.

Totally normal JBOT /

Nice....it's cool to see another yellow pinto like I have as well

being turned into something very cool.

I'm all stock looking so far...but not for long.

Looking forward to see what you do to this.

Re: Few weeks in.

Thanks man. Im torn. I really want to paint it but it's so mint. ha I got this ped with a 100 miles on it. It was a big step to get rid of the chrome wheels. There where perfect too. I figure I like what I like so im just going to make it look how i want. Paint/Powdercoating is still down the list a good ways. Im looking forward to getting some parts replaced and getting a little extra speed off the line.

EXCELLENT looking bike.

Not liking the look of the seat with the rest of the bike. Might be just a camera angle thing but I think it looks somehow unfinished that way.

Re: Few weeks in.

Yeah it's the color. I am layering on the stain with the goal of black in those shots it has only one coat of ebony stain. Today i added a 2nd coat and I'm almost there one more and I think it will be where I want it and fit the bike better.

Re: Few weeks in.

Man I am liking that bike...

Re: Few weeks in.

haha Thanks.

I like it. Seat is too big. Looks like its serving a platter of ass. Cheat it further back? Put some ribbed padding? Otherwise super cool. Yellow & black puchs look hot, I miss my yellow maxi

Re: Few weeks in.

I like it as well, tell me in that treats order is a proper seat?

Re: Few weeks in.

Dude... DIGGIN' the seat... Shape it up a bit though... that's gotta rape your thighs. See if you can't find a heavily used black and yellow skateboard. Cut 1/4 of it off, shape the end and bolt it up. Skateboard seats are awesome. Takes some getting used to, but these guys can be quite comfortable. Just get some good shocks and you'll be good to go.

Black and yellow is always a good choice. I say keep it going... have the clutch cover powder coated yellow and/or black. Keep it up dude!

Re: Few weeks in.

Yeah I thought about a skate deck but I went for the classy stained oak. It really isn't bad at all.
