1982 Powerlite 3 Bar 26

This frame set took forever to get right. The chain stays were rusted through so Johnny replaced them. The fork actually used to belong to Chip Foose.

I had it powdered but the color was off a little so I hand sanded the powder off and had Sherwin Williams Auto Paint match a NOS fork to get the color right. The first time I sprayed it, I didn't have enough pressure in my gun and the primer came out terrible but I went ahead and squirted the color. I figured I could color sand it smooth. Wrong! I ended up stripping and re-spraying the frame set which was way faster than color sanding them.
