Finally riding a big boys bike
Great looking bike. I bet it rides great too. I love the aged look you did with the paint. It looks legit. I'd like to attempt this technique on one of my builds, any tips for a beginner? I like it in bare metal too but the paint job really sets it off. My girlfriend doesn't peruse the Cabe with me often but she loves the tires and badge on this one. Nice work!

I live for the CABE
Hats off to you for a fantastic project! Really like that faux patina job and thanks fo 5th play by play of the painting. You've inspired me to get going on my 20s Westfield Motorbike. It still has some original cream paint on the head tube but everything else seems to have been long gone and plastered with black house paint. I have a few traces of red inside the frame. Saving the head badge area and matching the rest with cream and patina'd red seem like the way to go.

Thanks was a fun project. I basically did all the paint steps then I took 1500 grit 3M sandpaper at the end and wear down the paint slowly till I liked how it looked. The biggest thing is do what you like enjoy it and have fun.

I.m buying a trail blazer in a week and the original wheels a trashed. What did you use for wheels on your bike.
29" 36h Velocity Blunt 35 Wheels you can find them on eBay they fit 700x35c tire nice and look the same as the old 28” wheels I laced them to the old hubs that I cleaned up and re-greased I think luxlowbikes on eBay might even have some for sale laced to some old hubs hope that helps I am here if you have any other questions.
