    Custom Painted Road Bikes by ROB

    I am impressed to say the least!

    http://orlando.craigslist.org/bik/2210095682.html
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    If you're looking for a
    Super Nice Vintage Road Bike
    and you would like to Personalize it
    with a Pro Custom Paint Job,
    give me a call....


    This Bike was Painted and Built for Kayla, as she specified.
    She wanted a Bike that had a paint job that was "psychedelic"...
    Similar to the '60's Tie-Dye T-Shirts.
    I like the "Psychedelic Camouflage" name best.
    Having spent 3 days at Woodstock made doing this bike especially memorable and fun to do.

    The Full Effect of this Paint Job does not come across in these pictures.

    This package included the Bike; a Custom Paint Job;
    Tear down; Grease; Lube & Tune; New Brake & Shifter Cables and Housings;
    New Tires, Tubes & Bar Tape.

    And, to back up everything I've said that's been done to this bike,
    I back it up without pause,
    With a FREE Lifetime Warranty...
    Parts, Labor, Tune-ups & Wheel Truing.... including a "wear-out" warranty.
    For example, if you "wear out" any component,
    such as freewheel or chain, it will be replaced with a used
    matching set, in as good as condition or better than original.
    The Paint Job also has a Lifetime Warranty against any defective workmanship.

    Choose your bike before it's painted....
    Then, you pick the colors you want.
    Remember, this includes the bike of your choice, your colors, new parts & labor.
    I have numerous nice, vintage road bikes in every size from 47cm to 67cm.
    Come pick out a bike and make it look the way you've always wanted.

    As the price reflects, I charge little to nothing for the paint job.
    So, it's obvious that, for me, it's Not All About the Money!



    Thanks for taking your time to check out one of my bikes....Rob. "For the Bike People."

    Now that 'is' custom. I just don't know who the 'custom'er would be?
    Half of the time I fear I may not know what the hell Iím doing; the other half, Iím sure of it.

    I want to see where Kayla is riding, that this blends in as camouflage!

    Gotta admit, it is cool paint for that certain someone.

    at least it doesn't look like a slapdash job. Not my style, but it's better than some rattle can jobs i've seen.

    I like this:

    Why do I get the impression he means "WoodStock '99" ..."BRO it was awesome, Dave Matthews Band jammed out and water was 8 bux a bottle! DAAAAVE!!!"

    My bike is a lot like your mom.

    I would be more impressed if each chain link had been painted a different color to match the rest of the bike.

    I think in Santa Cruz they would consider this a stealthy Ninja paint job to blend in with the rest of the psychedelic community.

    I knew what this thread was going to be by looking at the title, having followed Orlando CL for a while.

    No, I'm pretty sure he means the 60's. He's an old retired guy. He started out refinishing some low-end old bikes, and slowly started getting more 'custom' on each job. I've never seen anything he posted that I would have bought, though early on it was just a price issue.

    This guy also got into some huge flagging and ranting wars with other posters on Orlando CL. A couple years ago, in a rambling manifesto, he swore he was done forever, then came back posting the next day. He's one of the people that makes it interesting to open up the Re:Re:Re... posts.
