S&M Credence M.O.D. build

Hey fellas, I bought an S&M credence frame from "the local face" BMX shop in germany because I was so inspired and hooked by the S&M videos with Clint Reynolds a few years ago. I always wanted a new S&M frame, finally I just got one 2 days ago and I´m stoked with the craftsmanship of this frame. It´s an M.O.D. though, not a C.C.R like Clint´s but anyhoo...
I´d like to build this similar to Clints old credence bike he had some years ago, so I decided to crawl through my stash in the shop and -Voila ! I found some Olive drab paint I could use for that.
This is an ongoing work in progress so please be patient but I guess it will be finished soon.
First some pics of the frame when I got it.

This is what I´m trying to achieve.

The ultimate olive drab ! When freshly applied it looks too dark, I know but with the natural weathering in a couple of months it will look like the green on Clints bike, I hope...

Temporary S&M enduro stem , Credence turtle neck is on its way, will be switched later.
Fork is from Kink.
Tree Ergo slim seat, S&M grips and Tree brake cable. Was lucky with the seat, only one shop in germany had it .

I just love the TREE V2 chain wheel, it looks so awesome on this bike, even though Clint´s chain wheel looks like a 28 teeth or bigger...mine has 25 teeth.
Cranks are no name, found them in my stash of parts in the basement.

Of course I have to have the credence stencil on the top tube and the twine to hold the brake cable :-)

more updates when I get the wheels & tires hopefully by next week.

Re: S&M Credence M.O.D. build

This is already off to a good start. There are some good pics over on Digbmx  of when Clint's bike was pretty much the same olive drab color that you have applied. http://digbmx.com/dig-this/the-fascist- … t-reynolds

Re: S&M Credence M.O.D. build

Thanks azaussi, I´m not sure but I believe that´s a different bike now. The current one from Clint also looks badass. Wow RBD2 , Tree hubs...I guess I can´t afford these now. :-) I was very tempted to do a perfect replica, but I guess I´ll just stay with the "lookalike" thing, but hey guys.. thanks for your compliments.

Re: S&M Credence M.O.D. build

Tires came, too. Originally Clint rode prototype S&M 2.4 tires, but the Kink tires are pretty close, so I´m fine with that.

Re: S&M Credence M.O.D. build

I´m getting there .... I wish the weathering process would´ve already started. It still looks too new. chain, brake adjustment and finally the turtle neck stem are next.

Re: S&M Credence M.O.D. build

update. Finally managed to get a turtle neck stem from my local shop. The polished one wasn´t available at the moment, so I bought a green one and removed the paint.I would´ve sanded down the shiny one anyway.  I wanted a raw turtle neck to match Clint reynolds version. I guess I´m almost finished now. The TREE Sticker is in the mail, Eastern boarder sticker is here and the chain and brake adjustment will be done today.
