    bike restoration

    I was walking through the woods with my girlfriend since it was a nice day. I looked at the water runoff from the coal mine and found a Haro Fusion partially submerged (the front tire and forks were under water). Took the bike out and to my surprise it was a perfectly good bike. Some rust, alot was orange from sulfur in the water, the chain is complete rust but works perfectly fine. Nothing is bent, tires still had air, everything but handgrips were there.

    Took it home, washed it off, took it to college and ripped it apart and started sanding the frame. As of now the frame is 3/4 sanded and all other parts were either sandblasted, bead blasted, or are sitting in limeaway for the weekend.

    I'll be custom painting it and I'm stuck on colors. Either glossy black with grimmspeed gold accent or glossy black with a dark red. Custom decals will also have the same color concept.

    please vote on which would look nicer or comment with what you think would look good.

    Re: bike restoration

    i'd go black and orange. i recently did a resto on an old mongoose, and did an orange front, with black batdges, black rims, black seat post, and then i painted the back half black, seperated by hot angles stripe/chevrons. it looked totally boss, and its close to Halloween i wanted to do a blood splatter type motif where the black was like the blood, and it would look all splattered where the colors met, as the transition point. other colors would look hot but take some guts, like bright teal, or fuscha. id rock any combination of those really. given the choices, im going with other, but, if i had to say, id go black and red, with a boss clear coat
    An ugly rusty Subaru is better then a shiny new Honda :smt002
