Touch up the welds with gold to give it a brazed look, would be so sweet.

I'd love a fork or bar like that. It's not overly copper like some stuff.

Yup, most of the coppery stuff looks too shiny, like red gold. This looks like... new copper. Sweet look!
How was this done.

Is it coming off because of your feet rubbing the crank or something else?

Cause if it's your feet rubbing the crank, you might just need to let the clear coat dry longer to let it fully set.

If that's the case, then it'd still be good for other parts that don't get rubbed frequently like a stem or something.

I like the mix of copper with polished steel. Could use a lot more coats of clear next time though.

But they say copper doesn't stick to aluminum very well so ehh I don't care to try it.
I did a bit of my forks, but I'm going to do the whole thing before I post any pics smile
