Re: Lets Get A Robinson Thread Going!

A teaser photo of the Amtrac I built for the calendar build off. I'll post full pics in here once the completed bikes threads are up. I took it for the first ride yesterday morning and it rides beautifully, super smooth and fast, although I might need a taller seat post.

Re: Lets Get A Robinson Thread Going!

Oh this is cool. I've been thinking about giving a dinged up '87 frame I have this treatment.

Who did the paint/powder on this?  Looks super dope.  cool

Thanks, lots of elbow grease into polishing it up, you can see the "before" picture a few pages back when I first got the frame. There are a few deep enough scratches that I almost went with sand/powder to make it perfect but I'm gonna ride it so it won't look perfect for long. I need to figure out a good time/place for pics for it now.

Re: Lets Get A Robinson Thread Going!
