I picked up an old Fierte last year for cheap and it was beat up pretty good in terms of nicks and rust. I took it to the local guys who knew how to handle a bike frame and had it media blasted for $45. They also dipped it in an anti-rust coating that's good for 30 days. Next I am waiting on some decals and then having my brother shoot it. He's nearing the end of a 3 year project to restore a 57 T-Bird, and he's *the* guy for painting. I don't leverage his talent much, but on this one I am going to ask the favor :banana:

Nice! Are you thinking single color or a serotta fade? Guess it would depend on how much pull you have with the brother/painter...

Very nice. What's the plan for the paint/decals? Personally, I never the liked the script on the "Fierte" logo, but I'm sure it will look great regardless.

If your brother's a great painter, you gotta go all out!!! Not just a solid. You've got to make it drool-worthy!! ;)

Can't wait to see the finished paint!!
