Frame Painting #RattleCan

Rust. Bare steel frames last just fine in the desert that is LA county. However now that we’re in San Diego county, 12 miles from the beach, I couldn’t keep bare metal clean and shiny. So, it’s time for paint. Not just any paint, no no no. Rattle Can Paint! Budgets suck. Ha!


But first I wanted to add water bottle mounts. My handy, dandy little fixture here makes quick work of the drilling.


And brazing water bottle mounts is among the quickest braze jobs on a bike.


Now, time to prime.




Add frame decals like a pro builder, reassemble.


BAM! I even did the stem. Love how it looks!

Next I’m finishing Adam from Rotten Gear’s frame finally!

Ride safe out there people! Road raging morons are out there waiting.
