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.

You say BMX is your life but you barely ride.
BUT hey, That's none of my business.

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
