New Paint for .008

cima.repaint.seattubeNYC.ride

When fabrication of Cima’s bike was completed back in April, we needed to build it up in time to race at Singlespeedapalooza…which meant putting off paint!  I put the finish on in my basement the night before bolting all the parts on, and it consisted of masking off the lettering and using cold gun blue to create contrast on the bare metal, and then brushing on a coat of straight Penetrol.  It looked amazing, but not for long…just long enough for Cima to fall in love with the color scheme.  I finally got the bike back  a few weekes ago, stripped it down,  and tried to replicate the same look with paint.  The finished result can be seen above, and right after completion we drove the bikes down to NYC to spend the day tearing around the city.  A hell of a way to christen a bike reborn!
