Re: Hot Lava Paint restoration technique (Fun with Neon, Dayglo)

Most do white, and I thought about it...but everything I had was black, even the mags...so I went with it.  I looked at several dayglo GTs and I think I counted 1 that went pink dayglo with black, so liked the idea.  My original Vertigo I did the white seat with white cables and spokes, and I really liked it.
I did think about Pink with white splatter during this build...but decided to keep it close to stock style, just color difference.

I have a semi secret 91 build I am doing, and about 4 more to play with.  I won't go all about how I am painting them, but will do the white with black spiderweb one day.  I hope to have a sweet 91 lineup one day.  What an obsession!!!


If you want to sell a 1991 GT bicycle, do not contact me!  Okay well, maybe just hint at what you have for sale, but don't offer it to me....well if you have no other people interested....ah what the hell, I want all of them.

Seems like seats are holding me up...lol.  Here is the bike built up and submitted to the Museum.  Just need my seat, and to cut some cable ends on the brakes.

I need some later style solid axle Superlace hubs or wheels in the sealed version.  Thought I would post it here on my thread in case some non Pro Members had some and do not see my wanted ad.  I want sealed verions only please

Love the pink on black coloe scheme. The white is too preppy for me and there is nothing uglier than white tires that have road grime all over them

Re: Hot Lava Paint restoration technique (Fun with Neon, Dayglo)

Photobucket ruined these older threads. Well I have this bike and it’s been sleeping in my basement for the last 8 years. I upgraded some parts over time, but his paintwork was flawless standing the test of time. Not a single scratch on it.

Is there a special effect under black light with this paint job?
