Great stuff. I know I'm late on this, but it may prove useful to someone...

I use https://www.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/ to find fonts as a starting point. You upload a jpg of the font you have and it tries to find a close approximate. From there, the trick is obviously finding a close font that isn't $50 and using it as a starting point. Illustrator, outlines, skew, etc etc to get it close.

Great job, can't wait to see this built up.

No pictures to share but I have heard that this
project is moving forward. Apparently the bike has been
color sanded and the white fill ins are being completed with a
syringe. I just need to have the wheels built now.
Update to come.

Yes.. it has been an eternity.
A friend did it as a favor..'nuff said.
This is one of two bike projects that are taking forever, working on my zen.

So I rescued the Zullo from purgatory.
It has been wet sanded and still needs the pantos filled in and decals to be applied. I am reaching out to some pros to get this thing done.

Love the paint and looking forward to seeing the final build. That is a good looking frame.

Zukas to the rescue!

This project is back on track.
I sent the frame to Nate Zukas to be finished.
As it stands it's painted, wet sanded and ready for the
pantographs to be filled by hand.
Then decals, clear coat and finished.
I'm stoked that Nate decided to take this on, his paint work is epic.

Yet another bump in the road...
I spoke with Nate Z. last night and he informed me that the frame needs to
be completely redone. Ugh. It ain't gonna be cheap.
However, he did say that he can make it beautiful.
We agreed on keeping the Chevy Blue with white inserts.
Updates in January 2018.
Happy Holidays everyone.
