I will mate, I'm just looking for a few small bits and I'll post up some more pics.
Its gonna have a black Iron Cross Chainwheel, Iron Pedals, Profile cranks. DK jumping stem, DK Forks, DK embroided drop nose seat and Sunn BFR rims

I got a set of 1/2" Iron Cross pedals and got a cheap pair of 9/16" Welgo pedals and swapped the axles over. Easy.

Re: Dk Talk

Do you have the DK forks. I noticed that the DK have real lazy steering head angle, but make up with short offset in fork. My DK rides terrible with a normal fork.

Re: Dk Talk

I have a Fit series 1 fork on it. I think it has more to do with the 73* seat tube angle and 14.25 chainstay paired with a high bb. Damn thing feels ridiculously long and awkward.

i have the same prob. I ride my new school bike the most, but race my dk and it takes alot of adjustments to get them slightly similar. I just started riding my dk more trying to get used to it

Re: Dk Talk

I just posted my new Professional V2 cruiser. It started as a raw frame, so instead of just painting it and putting stickers on, I decided to try something different. My first idea was to put a vinyl negative of the sticker, then using sandpaper rough the area to make a subtle ghost like logo. A friend had a better idea of using the sandblaster. Surprisingly the vinyl stickers held up. It created a perfect logo. Here is a photo of the first attempt on the downtube.

http://i1061.photobucket.com/albums/t467/jesse4130/C245B13C-C08C-4384-BE27-853FF7D5E54A-18121-000011C4BCDD4278_zpsbc5c9d5d.jpg

After how well that turned out I decided to try the head tube sticker. Again, surprisingly worked better than I thought.

Originally I wanted to paint it a transparent black. But after seeing "Psycho Brass", that was it. Cranks were white, but didn't look good, decided to strip them and paint them black. Here it is complete, so happy with how it turned out.

Re: Dk Talk

Thanks a lot guys. It was a ton of fun to do, mainly caused it actually worked! Haha If I knew how to work the vinyl plotter I would have gone crazy with it.
