got a roller, waiting for tins

I was gonna PC the wheels and such but I decided to leave them with their patinaed finish along with the bars and a few other parts to give it that nostalgic look like it has been that way for years. All the new parts will be dulled down to a rubbed finish .  I am tired of perfect paint and PC.  The tins are getting the retro flake treatment.

New AC

I was bored and nobody wants to pay anything for this AC cover so i made it fit my Amal 626. I Think its pretty cool. Got a decent polish on the primary cover too.  Im  rockin the AC brushed finish.


I wish I had somewhere to paint!  I could start assembling my bike but I have all these parts that need some kind of finish, paint or powder at this point i dont give a shit i jsut want to put it together. Theres no temp. outside ( 0*) and i have no place to spray. I got primer ,paint..,  Im am bored to tears when i am not working.  I am not used to winter anymore.  Thsi is  the last winter , last time i will be in this situation.  I am gonna have a shop even if its in the backyard soon as the snow clears. I know quit crying and do something, I am gonna have to start drawing i guess , you can only nail the wife so many times...
