First Fixed Buildup Thread - Day By Day
NEW EDIT: FINISHED PRODUCT (Sadly sold three days after being built to a buddy)
Converting my once smooth running Univega Maxima Sport Road bike into a fixed. Can't wait to finish it! I will be updating this thread everyday or whenever something new is done.
Current parts sitting at my home are: original bars + quil stem, Origin-8 crankset
Parts waiting to arrive: gold Deep V's with silver spokes and Formula hub
My Univega as it once was:
Went through 2 cans of aircraft stripper and removed all the paint
One coat of primer
Put 3 layers of base coats last night. Just finished a coat of clear earlier. For those that are wondering, color is Graphite (Gun Metal Grey) Wheel paint by Duplicolor.
Sprayed 3 layers of clear coat and has been sitting for about 10 hours now. Components are stock stem, bars, seat post and seat is from my Schwinn World. Next step is wait for more parts to arrive as the paint cures.

Deep V's arrived from bicyclewheels.com
