Doing some cleaning/removing the exhaust and prepping for paint before the HRC tip comes in. Found out my rear wheel is real fucked up more than a few loose spokes, bearings and chain-side spacer is trashed. Nothing too awful though, I’d rather mess with maintenance neglect issues than shit someone’s messed with and fucked up worse.
Rims, I’d pickup this and test them out to see which one works best. Each one is a different stiffness like detailing pads, but they’re the closest to the Mothers Powercone without spending $30 on a single piece
Also remember to use the vanilla polishing water
Since we’re on the subject, might I suggest either red or black spoke wraps? Maybe both? Dirt cheap mod and would probably look pretty good with the polished lips.
Not too fond of it, at least not on Chungus. Being that I was into bikes in those days and had Honda’s, I wanna keep everything (mostly) period correct aside from enduro/luxuries like the trail tech, and upgraded lighting, which I wanna keep a simple look with. The idea for him is a more realistic Baja look, the look most of them had instead of the massive round lights and excessively crazy graphics and baller parts.
The black rims I may do in the future, but I might also just save that for the supermoto wheels, because I’ve decided at some point I want some black/gold sumo wheels for it.
That last pic you posted does make me wanna do the black and red alternating look on Scary though
Once I have time to sit down and design them, and have about $150-$200 to blow I’m gonna have a local vinyl shop or a custom mx graphics company make them.
I’m gonna have to true the rear wheel (and probably the front too) when I tighten the loose spokes so balance isn’t an issue. Just use jack stands to make a jig and get to work. Polishing the spokes with a towel would probably be easier though
