Never did a build thread on my WTP "Big Stud" bike... Process pics

So a few years ago, I built up a flatland bike, picked each part, and got it the way I wanted it. Some of my friends were picking on me for how it looked (typical of all my bikes over the years, as I got what I got, didn't really care what it looked like... So I always had all different colors on my bikes.

This one was no different. I had red bars, purple forks, white frame...

Yeah, it looked like one of my bikes.

So my boys told me that I needed a bike that matched my style, and THEY were gonna do it up right. You could call this.


PIMP MY BIKE

So I stripped it down to the basic parts, and dropped it off for them to do their thing. I only wanted to keep my Colin Winkleman sproket the same... Anything else, they could do what they wanted.

So, they had some left over paint from this.

And Jamie at Speed Kings laid it down all over my frame/bars/forks.

But, first they welded on a cable guide as I guess riders today prefer zip ties... and those were NOT good enough for this build. So they mocked one up and welded it on. Then started laying down the burnt gold metallic color.

They even tricked out my original prototype Tech 77's that Dia Compe gave me way back in the day.

http://i668.photobucket.com/albums/vv50/FreeEnterprise/P1010051.jpg


Then my buddy Josh Shaw got ahold of it, and laid down the craziest paint job I have EVER seen, all done by hand, gold, silver and bronze leaf work with hand pin striped logos and graphics! No stickers on this ride!

This frame was a WTP "stud" so they decided it needed a bigger name than that... Lol.

My best friend growing up does custom motorcycle seats now, so he made me this custom seat... Pretty awesome! And WAY more comfy than the seats of old...

If you are OK with your actions why the concerted effort to hide what happened?

Don't screw over those you tell your secrets...its not talkin shit if it's TRUE.

I remember seeing this a while back, I was so intrigued I went and found a WTP Stud as well! Cheers on the rad ride, but you know whats even better? The fact that its not a carpet queen. Ride on!


Looking for:
- GT Show seat post, stem (black)
- Fusion 32tooth sprocket
- Haro 39tooth Mega Nuke sprocket
- Schwinn Hydramatic Team (Or parts)
- BMX catalogs, Old and new
- Haro Hevron stem in blue

This bike. It's just... savage? Yes, savage. Killer finish and skills. Like Roy said, the Thinker pose is amazing.


When I bunnyhop I hear a creak and I don't know if it's my bike or my joints. Oh well.

Love it.  I fav'd it along time ago just because you were riding in dress clothes and a tie.  tongue

Heres my profound, life changing statement.
Lifes a bitch..PASS ME A BEER.

They're reacting and that's wonderful. It's better than them sitting there doing nothing. I say make them react - do whatever's in your power to move the audience, and if that's where it is, and there where it is with America, sex and violence, then I say project it.
