Hammertone Raw Aluminum, basically raw a part out and how it would happen put a kind of texture into it, and maybe a slight tint. I think if done right it could look pretty good. To give a better idea, here are some pics to kind of show what I am thinking of. ALSO another thing would be trying to make it cost efficient if there would be any issues with that.

That is like a black and silver though. I was talking about a raw aluminum with that kind of texture.

Why aluminum? For sprockets and stems?

Why not steel, frames etc.

but Rustoleum has a "Hammered" finish paint that "does that" in a can.

I am sick and tired of the "cliques" that this sport has recently developed. We should embrace the fact that we all ride a little kids bike, and not worry about the small details. When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same.

i had a sunday funday that i put this on but it was gold. the paint is shit to work with if you dont have the right room temp. i used it in like -20 temperatures so the paint mostly bubbled, i sanded it down and re did it the next day in a heated shop and it turned out pretty good. overall a good, easy, and its only twice the price of regular spray paint haha!

Guy who used to post of mfbs did a hammered finish to a redneck stem looked good. He just used a hammer with a fine point and just whacked it a heap
