Thought I'd catch the train today and ride my freshly built green machine.
It is made of purest green.

Thanks guys, I'm stoked with how well it's come together and how it looks. There's a couple of things that need tweaking, such as the back brake which doesn't want to work properly, but it rides really well.
I'm looking forward to the weather being good enough to get some jumps and suchlike in!! :)

Cheers guys, considering it's the first thing I've ever powder coated myself I'm pleased with teh finish. The green is "borrowed" from a customer of mine, it's their "official" corporate colour, but I thought it would look better on my bike frame :)

its awesome !

could you paint a bmx say just by spraying it rather than powdercoating?

Cheers guys and sorry about your one bmal.

You certainly could spray one, it's just that my factory has powder booths so I thought I'd "borrow" them :)

yessir that's looking good. The back brake on those things is a real git to adjust, mainly because of where it is. I found that even with two of us doing it, there simply weren't enough hands.
If I stripped down my road frame and managed to get it over to you somehow, do you think you might be able to give that a powder coating?

I know, I reckon you need to be an octopus to be able to adjust it easily!!

As for your road frame, it wouldn't be a problem at all. I'd sift through the colour options that we have, then take it from there :)

splendid, I'll be in touch about that later in the year!
