Bike Makeover #7: Bright blue Fuji
My friend "Baldman" is at it again. This time he had a largely complete bike but the paint was deteriorating in several places and the whole bike needed some TLC. He repainted in sky blue, adding cream colored panels on the body. Then he custom-made decals like he'd done for Amanda's bike. The use of the gold was not planned, he'd run out of the colors he'd planned to use. It looks great with the leather of the saddle and the DIY mudguards he makes. He still plans to shellac the grips which will darken the brown.
Will anyone else help me convince him to open an Etsy shop selling these mudguards?
It seems that "La Stronzo" is self-deprecating Italian. You can look it up if you want to, but I'm not going to do it for you here.
