So, I've got a day off work, meeting my mum for lunch so won't have time to ride until later. I got bored this morning and remembered I've got some paint stripper and black spray paint...... Not sure if that's a good thing but it's too late to change my mind now hahaha

I think it looks real nice in the picture, but it's YOUR bike at the end of the day. One may find someone's setup the best thing in the world, but the owner may be totally burnt out of it, haha. I guess that's just the way things are.

Cool man. I personally have rode a black bike so long that I'm way bored of it. I'll be stripping and painting mine soon even though i just got the frame haha.

It might grow on me, it all looks too new and nice now. I like the look of bikes that have been ridden. I'm thinking of spraying the frame trans black. Or better yet, spray everything quite a dark trans black, with a slightly lighter trans black on the frame.
Or I just throw it around and drag it through bushes until it looks more ridden....

I love the look of a fresh and clean setup, having a chrome frame/fork etc and not grinding a lot kept that setup looking MINT for a few YEARS. Now I am on a rattlecanned frame and fork, and it looks like crap haha.

Also my rear rim is MANGLED on the left side because of my rail.

I should make an edit of my rail clips.

Get some flat army green and black parts.

That would look slick.

Then maybe a flat white star on the HT.

Nothing will ever be replacing this headtube badge!
I was thinking maybe dark grey on the frame, then a darker grey on the bars and forks. Or I stop worrying about it and just ride it. I wouldn't mind the headtube badge standing out a bit more though.

You could do a flat finish on everything and polish the headbadge

If you like the "ridden bike" look, i have a scratched up skavenger sticker to sell you.

On a serious note... spray the headtube badge black and just before it dries, wipe the paint off, but not very hard.

It will give it that vintage look.

Or you can have the headbadge electro gold plated for extra bling.

The raw frame looks actually sick on your setup...

I would definitely consider keeping it raw, letting it rust just a bit and putting on a top coat to seal the thing...

That pain idea on the head tube badge is a great idea.

I would suggest prickling the lettering surface with a stiff brush tho for yet another look.

Or you could polish it, then paint the lettering black then get a stiff brush...

It doesn't matter where a train goes. It's decidin' to get on that does.
