A new skin is just what this Aerospoke needed to step it up into gear! The effects (or pearls) are placed organically to give the white base various highlight tones when artificial or sunlight hits it from various angles.
I can’t believe this project began as a Mercier track frameset – the amount of NJS aesthetics this presents from the deep violet luster to the quad-stage ‘Icecream effects’ gives this frameset a higher level of respect. The slight masking to the fork crowns ties in the silver from the rear to the front end providing an even flow amongst the paint scheme.
The masking is coming together slowly but surely – there is still a lot more work before we can declare this project done. More progressions of the additional stripes will be posted and you can stay in the loop with the link below:
This number is definitely ready for the streets and give quite a face lift to the rest of the motorcycle roaster. In direct sunlight – it presents itself with a slight shimmer that is integrated into the base-coats, and creates a deep galaxy effect within the clear coats.
Now that the “Red Wagon” is fully built – its looking amazing with the oversized wheels and the black matte accents. I’m glad that the design accents showed up against the rest of the build. It’s time to install the custom interior in the bed portion and this thing will be set!
This aerospoke will take on a jet black base and topped with a triple stage Icecream effect (gold flake, currency, and a touch of glass).
The final touches on the ‘candy violet purple’ looks incredible! Once the NJS flake goes on this number, it’ll look just like a Keirin frameset.
Hey folks, if you get a chance to see the “Hubba Bubba” in person – you’ll be purely blown away! The amount of techniques involved in this project will drive you crazy just trying to place them all together. As long as I have an extremely happy client that’s what counts most.
Presented this ‘Mothers Day’ gift to my mom over the weekend – and her jaw dropped! I think I used a bit too much ‘icecream’ because every time sun hit the surface she had to turn away from the shininess!
Here are some finalized images of the wagon in the sunny sun. Once this number is built (off site) – I’ll provide more images of the final build
On this restoration we will be giving the paint a facelift (Cannondale Blue) – sticking with the original masked areas, and doing a few of the detail treatments in yellow. Decals and remaining detail treatments will be done off site.
