Hello all! Its been a while since I’ve been here to check the forums! Since I’ve been gone, well I finished building my custom coker frame (designed after the GB4 frame) and pieced together a 36er. Building the frame took me a very long time, as I only had a hack saw, and a grinder to use. For a while I was riding around with a bare metal frame and it began to rust rappidly, living on the coast of Maine. Finally, I ordered a Powder Coating Do-It-Yourself kit from Eastwood Company, and some powders of different colors to experiment with. The kit was very cheap, only $100 and came with almost everything you need to start powder coating your own metal! I chose lime green to coat the frame in, and I was amazed by how easy everything was! The process of painting the frame and drying took less than an hour, and delivered professional results, as you can see in the pictures.
Man, that is really sweet. Great job. You musta been really careful cutting the tubes to get 'em the same length so the axel would sit nice and square. Where did you get the ovalized tubes for the fork? Did you do your own welding? I just finished my own custom 29er (search my name for the thread & photos). I found some 4130 steel tubes but they’re round. I would have loved to use ovalized tubes 'cuz they look sleeker.
