Re: Operation - Purple Reign

I’m thinking chrome on black chain to reference all the little black bits throughout the bike.

Oh wow. Purple on purple pedals. I never saw that before or even considered it. It looks like fun. What about a purple chain?  I’ve seen some really nice lavender survivor chains around lately.

Nah, I think that’s where people go wrong with the purple reign builds. There has to be some parts to show contrast or else it loses its impact of color.. in my opinion.

Re: Operation - Purple Reign

Funny, when starting this build - someone the parts I gave little thought to turned out to be just as hard to find as the main parts.

* Exampe * OG Hutch lay back seat post, original chrome/decals.

Huge thanks to Scott Hawkins for the help and hook up on this elusive seat post!

Sometimes the process of these builds scale the globe - it makes it an even cooler story when it’s done πŸ˜ŽπŸ€™πŸΌ

Re: Operation - Purple Reign

I love the white tires, I've never been a fan of different shades of the same color, I'd go with a white seat, grips & headset as well.

On this purple reign Hollywood I went with black & silver accents to toughen it up a bit lol

I feel the same if it’s like 9 random shades of miss matched attempts at color matching, but when it’s methodical and purposeful design wise I think it came make it go from looking like a department store girls bike to a period correct custom build. πŸ€™πŸΌ
