Still need to build some fixtures to hold my parts when painting, so almost didn't post this picture, but most builders don't even paint. In this picture is a CW style BMX bar, Grove Innovations Hard Core reproduction fork, and a original Grove hot head bar/stem. They have been primed, sprayed with white base coat, sanded and cleared. Need to be sanded again, decals applied and more clear.

I have a customer who snagged a Grove Innovations X-frame off of eBay. The bike came with an old Scott uni-crown suspension fork, which really didn't even function any more. He was hoping to get the correct fork put back on this vintage bike. Here is the fork loaded in the jig.
The Hard Core fork and the Hot Head bar/stem that came with the bike will get a fresh coat of white PPG paint. I'll post pics when it is all together.

I know there is no money in BMX parts, but when you live with your 9 year old customer, you have few choices. Upon returning from the Groovy race in Ohio I was asked to fabricate this CW style bar to finish off the 1982 Schwinn Sting build. Still needs white paint, but I have a fork and stem on the build list that also needs white, so I'll do them in one shot.
