I switched over to a nice Sherwin-Williams powder for my gloss black today... those are the first parts I've done with it and yes it looks really nice. The Eastwood powder I've been using looks good to but not quite as nice as the new stuff.

I will get these forks rebuilt this week... my wheels might be done this week too. I might be able to spend the next couple of weeks assembling the frame into a roller and take inventory of anything I am missing... I'll be at the Davenport Iowa swap meet... my friends George and Garry are setting up a booth there this year. I'm hoping to find some missing parts there. I have English repop fenders inbound... I want to get the fenders and tank in epoxy primer before mid September too. I'll probably wait until spring to do the actual paint job though.

Where did you buy the Sherwin-Williams powder ?  I have been using Powder by the pound stuff. It seems pretty good but I am a rookie at powdering ..

Got the call last night that my wheels were all done. John did a killer job on 'em...  Laced and a new set of K70s on em. I'm getting closer and closer to assembling my roller...

Rear brake drum and plate are installed and ready for use... I have the front brake plate broken down for cleaning... Need to get something to clean the raw Aluminum with... I don't want to bead blast it and open the casting surface.
