Michael was stopping by to pick up the Brew resto, so I took some time to get it all ready for him. the first item on the agenda after finishing the powder coat was to clean up all the frame surfaces; tap out the bottom bracket, face the head tube, tap out the derailleur and bottle bosses, and then prep the fork for the new Cane Creek Classic headset.
Here's the Tange Struts fork getting the race turned down in the lathe...
Christi found this turn of fate a bit funny, and unluckily for me, she had the camera ready :(
While setting the lower headset race, the rapid pounding on the press tool caused my too loose britches to fall...not cool. I quickly remedied the situation with a bit of rope.
And here she is, Michaels repaired Brew with a fresh Illusion Lapis powder coat, ready to be built up and ridden hard for more years to come.
I got out to Vulture's Knob last night to put together the final trail day job list and crashed hard, bending my front wheel and causing a bit of carnage to my leg. I rode it out to the car looking a bit like a circus clown on a funny bike, wobbling to and fro.
Off to the paint booth again today.
Gonna run the bar contest this weekend, so be sure y'all stop back to play!
