Working along........

 Matt's Rather Large Bike has went off to Spectrum Powder for custom paint - always awesome.

 Just about everything is oversized, so I had to make it all from scratch.

 Below, special project - more on that later.

 The double top tube cruiser finally went home, the owner was moving, so he had me hold onto it.
 It shall be missed.
 That's some fine detail work.

 Just all around damn nice.
 My sweet little dog!
 We went fishin' for my birthday.
 Outdoors supermodel.
Sand Badger!
Happy Sand badger!
As those of you who read this have or maybe have not noticed, I update it far less frequently.
Facebook has taken over the majority of my interweb pictures & buisness pics, the most hits a blog post has ever got is ~ 1700, and that took four years - an image on FB get that much in 1/2 an hour.......
People say (right to me, actually) that they don't need to come see me - they can read my blog - that's weird, and makes me wonder if I should stop so I see more people?
Odd world we live in for sure...........
Anyway, I'll likely post here agian in the next few a rough list /build queue - it's usually client's lives that cause changes in the queue, and I do my best to roll with it & keep everyone stoked while maintaining a smooth workflow.
Best wishes & thanks for your support & pacience - Steve.

Josh's bike done & ceramic coated, MF's big bike coming along.

 Josh's 650B that got ceramic coated came out amazing! Super durable, many colors, and only about five microns thick.
Upcharge, $350.00 for S&H, polishing, and the base color and logos.
 It just came out great.
King gruppo, Thomson, Fox, WTB, XT, hand built wheels on Pacenti rims, fast, solid, snappy. A big BMX bike.
 Pre-build in the sun.
 A super cool finish, with amazing eye for detail.
Check out the close ups below - it hides nothing.

 We delivered his bike as he was really sick..............
 Big bike is cruising along.
it seems things take me forever but it somehow gets bikes out in a regular fashion.
 Above, as-brazed. Below, working my way forward polishing.

 Looking good.
Another awesome old tool!
A Kennedy tool box - my favourite, and my third.
Thanks for reading, Steve.
