You are both right- flip flop hubs for road racing on his new Winter (freewheel), and the option to use them "off season" on the track (fixed).

It's a hand rubbed finish, trying to be a bit evocative of the rat rod oil rubs, but with a high gloss. It also has some simulated primer grey (colored paint) "wear spots". As the bike is raced and knocked about it should age into it's finish really well.



I painted both of these under Rody (Groovy Cycles) tutelage. Rody is a great friend and was excited to help me on these early steps towards painting.

Very cool Eric...Was the basecoat laid down and flashed-off and then the darker color rubbed on-off by hand?? Interesting...

Essentially. It was a bit of an experiment- I quite like how it turned out.
