I'm definitely leaning more towards that white now... Also got a few other things sorted on the weekend:





Not the best TIG brazing in the world, but I'm going with 'rustic'... Also I think the wiring loom looks great, probably just leave it like that...

This build blows my mind, its next level in its originality and craftsmanship. Love following its progress.

Thanks guys. So it's all pretty much there apart from finishing up the electrics:









Also photoshopped a couple of colour options, but I think in the end I'll keep the tins raw and maybe patina them a bit, give it a bit of character. I think the white is just a bit too OTT?

Absolutely. I'll start it out all nice and shiny but after a few years it'll get quite dull and muted, I quite enjoy the way it'll change. I'll leave the brass and copper to do that naturally so it's just a matter of how I treat the steel. I'll have a play with that while the frame is off being powdercoated. The headlight is about 100 years old, so it's got some really nice patina I'll try and match/take inspiration from.

I can't decide if this build makes me want to run to the shop, or never pick up a wrench again.

Incredible work.
