I'm going to start and the end thus far and talk and talk about working on the rack I just got today from @JMack

I have a chrome rack, sorry but it's going to by color coordinated with the rest of the bike...

Too cold for now, need to have it at least 40-45F for around an hour to dry enough to bring it in to finish, THEN another day or so for the bottom and arms.

I have the top side red now, have to go get another can and do the underside and arms and if the weather hold out for me just a day or two more I will have a painted rack to install! The Painter's Touch 2X is surprisingly resilient when left to cure at low temperatures and then brought in to finish by the wall heater. This is good because conditions are falling apart for painting at all.

It snowed today so I really need a warm place to paint the rest of the rack. It will probably be warm again next week I hear though.

And back after a long hiatus...it looks like I might have my TANK! More down the road on that as it develops.

Now, here are two things I still want for Tess...this is a picture from a ad for a bike sold by @THEGOLDENGREEK

I was in touch with someone about parts but had no luck in my search there, I thank them for looking. Oddly enough I have the same Red Guard saved for mine.

If you have anything I could use, please use the messaging system and talk to me? The light is probably of higher priority.

My tank came today from @MrAustralia

and I got to looking at it and realized that black and white with red striping would be PERFECT on my bike, so it stays that way with some repairs to the chipped paint. The effort to get the deal done was definitely worth it! Thank you!
