Pink Leopard

I have to thank Rody for allowing me to rip off his pink Cheetah paint job, as well as lending me 2 really nice airbrushes, and giving me a 3 hour lesson on how to use them.  I am very proud of this paint job which has 20+ hours of labor.  This was a big step for me to take, which allows me to take frame building to the next level.  I now have another tool in my tool box.  I hope Joe likes it as much as my children.  The frame still needs a wet sand and 2 more coats of clear, before delivery.  I will post pictures of it built up when I have them.

Lots of TI

Sorry for the lack of posts, life has just been crazy for the last 6 months.  I have been building, but not taking the time to take pictures. 
The first picture is of Justin's TI 29er hardtail with Paragon's 44mm head tube and hooded sliders.  After some paint it will be built up with Chris King components and a Fox float 140mm fork.  He was looking for an updated Grove Extreme frame.
Second picture is a short run of TI post, 6 in total, but 2 already gone.  Any of the remaining post can be bent to any offset or left straight if anyone is interested.
Third picture is of Joe's TI road frame which will see an ungodly number of miles.  This one is also getting the Chris King treatment along with lots of Durace.  I should have the rear triangle on by the end of tomorrow, and then it is off to the paint booth to get some shades of pink.
