Swing bike done

Sanding, priming, sanding and repainting the swingbike was a LOT less work than I’d anticipated. Originally, the center pivot was completely rusted, and the entire ship had rusted pits. Here’s the chainguard before; most of the ship had similar amounts of rust:

And here’s the ship, repainted and partially assembled:

I am not an artist — that’s not my skillset — but I’m really happy with how it came out!

After putting the ship back together, I built a cardboard Tetris costume around it:

Which was a lot of fun as a Hallowheels costume for the last ride of the SCUL season.

    This one didn’t look too bad, but just fyi: I have a good portable compressor and sandblasting rig that can do whole frames, and a stationary cabinet that can do most sub-assemblies/parts. Should you need it.

    Wow, awesome! I may take you up on that in the future.
    Yeah, the rust on this frame wasn’t bad; the worst was around the welds on the center pivot, and that cleaned up reasonably well. Thanks!

    OMG Chastity! Still can’t believe it.
