Now I am forced to quote myself (Oh, and I have no intention on paying more than his asking price in order to exemplify my "baller" status, k?)Originally posted by Sarcastik+Sep 8 2005, 06:39 PM~3779008-->I love this forum cause ya'll respond so quick.

i would pay no more than 150 for it
dont repaint it... keep it that way... just have it professionally cleared like 3 times and it will be perfect mayb get some brown/ tan pin striping to match your seat... if you take off the paint you are messing with fuckin it up and decreasing the value of itOriginally posted by Sarcastik@Sep 10 2005, 12:40 PM~3787885
The bicycle design I have in my had calls for a custom upolstered seat in like a light brown (similar to the color of this site actually) and then I want have the frame painted to color match that, but as I said before I wanted to know if it would be considered stupid to paint over a perfectly good paint job when I could keep my eyes out for a primered frame for a lot cheaper, ya know?
Theres is alot of competition. You have several clubs in the bay area and at a good show you can have about 30 or so bikes on display. I didnt say we dont have any bikes in this area, I said that custom parts are not as easy to find. You dont have shops that you can walk into and say, "Give me a handlebar with two birdcages for grips and make the rest triple twisted". The rims on my trike are from down south, my forks were made in Washington, my fenders came from New Mexico and my paint job was done somewhere else. I know a few other people that can make custom parts but its only because they work somewhere with all the equipment to make whatever.Originally posted by Sarcastik@Sep 10 2005, 03:39 PM~3789279
First you say we live in the worst place in the world for lowriding bikes and now you say there's a lot of compitetion, which one is it man? I actually decided when I first decided to get into this that I would not make any bikes I couldn't cruise around oakland in so I don't need to concern myself with competition really, but I do want it to look nice as hell. I am actually not going to use this frame for now, but when i find a frame for my first project I am definitly gonna pin stripe it and jazz it up so its sick when I'm cruisin around the lake.
