Going Green margarita style
« on: April 03, 2009, 09:44:52 PM »
Its time to redo the old Richey so i stripped her down bead blasted off all that old rust and filled in all her bruises apply three coats epoxy prime scuff sanded and  four coats of base coat color is called sublime I call it de jugo de lima.Its looks like a margarita. then I applyed three coats of polyurethane clear let dry. sanded  with 600 grit paper and put on three more coats of reduced clear and that`s it. Then I got an empty box and filled it with all that extra crap that u don't need like chain rings, derailleurs, all those stupid cables, 9 speed cog (why so many speeds)center pull brakes. lbs of crap you don't need. now its time to install all the goodies new single speed crank 34 tooth, one single cog in the back 18 tooth . replace all the brakes with new v style ( work much much better) ergon grips and she`s ready to go . nice and lite  for old steel frame..
