Better late than never

Sorry been lagging on the blog for a while, been busy. When faced with sitting at a computer, or going and spending some quality time on a bike for someone, its almost always the bike. Right now, I guess, is the exception.
This one is for Mike Styliano in Nelson, New Zealand.

The ever popular root beer color never seems to disappoint for translating the smoothness of fillet brazing. It is a very hard color to do well in powder coat as the brown is a transparent over a silver undercoat. Any flaws in the top or bottom coat are glaringly obvious and there are not really any second chances. The depth of color is pretty hard to beat, though. Victor Sanchez, who does all my powder coating, does a bang up job with it. Thanks Victor!

No ticks were harmed in the shooting of this bike.
