Paint looks good from a distance, or in a pic, but the paint is not so great when you are up close and personally looking at it. !! But no, I'm not worried about it. Frame came out good, and the oil tank, so really all I have to do is pull the tanks and fenders for a re-do.
That's pretty much where I am with the Ariel framed bike. The frame and fork was powder coated because it would be so
much work to do it later, and the wheels are finished. Some stuff like the footboards are as-supplied finish. So there isn't a huge lot to do.
The bike with the Shovelhead forks is a different matter because the frame needed repair so it really needs to be stripped and painted or powder-coated. I'll probably do a complete strip-and-finish with that one because there is new metal, old metal, and everything in between. The wheels are going to be the problem because they are not great cosmetically but quite sound, so I will end up with wheels that don't match the overall standard of finish, so perhaps I'll just give it a lick of satin black fir now
Shoot, a man could have a good weekend in Dallas with all that stuff...
