ELECTRIC BANANA

January 5th, 2008

Before the holiday madness descended I did a repaint for our friend Patrick of Java Speed Scooters.

It’s an old Tommaso that we did a crazy yellow pearl paint job on. This is one of the better made frames that’s come thru here (the work of our own hands excepted, of course) – great detail work and tons of neat cutouts and embossings.

You’d be shocked, shocked how nasty some of the vaunted classics of olde look when you get under the paint, but this is really a work of art. You can see more pictures here.

Coming up: lisa rides, a new frame for hometown hero Carrie Cannon, stripping paint with invisible rays, and more!

    this bike waited for 10+years for this beautiful paint- the only thing to do now is sell a kidney for the campy stuff it deserves and then commence riding the snot out of it! Thanks for doing such a great job!
