you dont know very much about powdercoating because you didnt tape off the brake mounts so now you brakes wont go on and your bars werent taped off so they have a chance of moving. but i see no bubbles.

You don't know very much about powder coating because you can very easily clean off brake mounts with a razor and some sandpaper. Plus all of my bars have been powdercoated and the knurling is always covered, and guess what?! even with my crappy four bolt top load stem it doesn't slip.

DIAF.

Yea the frame is definitely interesting, with the top tube being so thick and all! It is pretty sturdy, held up well over the years where as most of the other parts that came with the bike failed. The only plans is to finish up the bike which was a little project for this winter. Right now I'm waiting for the wheelset, cranks, and chainwheel then I can finish this bish. I'm going brakeless too so I told the powdercoater no need to seal off the brake mounts, yea and the finish could easily be taken off.




Anyway I need some opinions as too whether my seat is PIMP or gay, the fabric isn't attached yet but just a mock up. I have black vinyl just in case I thought the zebra fabric would turn out ****. Should I keep it or lose it?

Keep it. It's a unique bike, it needs a unique seat.

Personally I think it adds a really strong touch. I'd agree with WTP.
