gettin' restless again, started looking around and my old hardtail frame (flathead project) needs some attention. I was running a 5.00 x 16" tire on the back and it looked too big for this little rig. I dug out an old genuine twinstripe I got at a swap a few years back, mounted the juicer drum on it and put it on the bike...much better!

Then I noticed the fender is in sorry shape. Paint cracking and peeling, and also it just looks poorly along the sides, needs a skimcoat of filler and the wiring is shabby.

And so begins another midwinter body and paint project...not sure about color yet but it'll come to me

Good to see that you've got the motivation to work on your scoots.I can't seem to find it myself. Old age and pains have even got me thinkin that my long distance ridin days are comin to an end.

body and paintwork Empty so here's what i done

Post  sunnydog on Sat Jan 12, 2019 5:34 pm

I decided to listen to you guys....!!

The plan was to 'relic' the fender since the bike is real old and there are chips in the tank paint, wheels, frame etc...so no need to try achieve something perfect....the perfection would be in mimicking the condition of the rest of the bike!

So I didn't strive for excellence in bodywork, or paint. What I did was sanded it and finished it to make it look worn. The paint color a black base coat with drab dark olive green painted over top....then some sanding marks and even some dings. The front fender of this bike is part of a spare tire ring from a late 20's Ford, and it's dark green but about 100 yr old paint...therefore drab and darkened.

Here's a look at fender with base black and sanding done:

It sure does Denn...the temp in the shop is pretty cool, okay for working but a bit chilly for paint curing!

I've got a few of those heaters not in use.I'll have to move one in when I need some heat for painted parts dryin.Usually paint outside in the sun but then that's usually when the bugs are flyin.
