Status: Not for Sale (Belongs to my Father-In-Law)
Groupset: Shimano Tiagra
Frame: 7005 Aluminum
My Father-In-Law is in his 80's and still rides his bike several times per week. He's even done some 100km rides, and all that without electric assist! I had already set-up his cockpit to give him a more comfortable riding position, and the bike was running great but the frame was pretty scratched up and worn out looking from years of traveling on racks and in the back of trucks. Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures before I took it apart, but at least you can see what the frame looked like before it was painted.
He wanted it painted red with white decals so I chose Corvette Victory Red for the basecoat. I made all the decals with Photoshop and cut them out with the Cricut. Since Brodie is a Canadian company, I added the maple leaf to the 'b' logo and thought it made it look pretty cool.
My father-In-Law was pretty happy with the results. He's now riding a bike that is like-new with a completely original paint job. I'm sure he'll be twice as fast now with his racing-red machine!
