Nice, cool to see more manufacturing coming out of Italy in the wheel market

Good to know, they look like a lot of the ones I've seen on there. Just out of curiosity, where is the hub made?

Buffing wheel, buffing soap, a lot of time on your hands, some ambition and an area you don't mind dirtying up. Also, wear a face length mask or wipe your face before going out in public if you aren't of African descent. Because you will have a black ... more »

Thanks man, and ohh I feel you on that. I wouldn't powdercoat my personal bike for that exact reason. We were actually wanting to do exactly what we did on the swingarm to the frame, but the magazine wanted us to go blue because they needed something ... more »

Hey thanks, should be something kind of different and a little loud. Will definitely be updating and potentially finishing this project in the next 2-3 weeks.

Absolutely, ceramic coating is a simple and effective process with some great results. I'm in the same boat with the oven size. I can cerakote and powdercoat small stuff. The frame was done by San Diego Powdercoat. Bit of a drive from Murrieta, but they're

Nice man, I've been drooling over this bike! I'm actually the guy that built those wheels, and I'm glad you're happy with them. We take a lot of pride in what we do

Have you tried giving Dubya a call? Sometimes shops get flooded with emails, and it's tough to respond to each and every one.

Buchanan is it's own company. Their spokes are made custom to order in Azusa, CA. They have been around for ages. Bulldog spokes are a product of Central Wheel located in the UK. That being said, those two along with Excel are all top quality, and you ... more »

It's just a clear anodize instead of a clear coat. You polish it before and then when it's anodized, it kind of dulls the cheeseball mirror look to a nice level while smoothing it out and retaining that appearance for (in theory) a long time.

It's funny you asked to "reveal" it. Guys that are secretive on stuff like that are typically just fluffer middlemen bead blasting parts and sending it off to someone else. The bronze you're asking about specifically is a Burnt Bronze, the silverish ... more »

Six sprocket bolts, and not a single one torqued. Clearly, previous owner does not cruise Vital.

Surprisingly, all sprocket bolt holes were actually intact. I thought they would be elongated for sure, however I can pull the rear hub bearings ... more »

Got the motor back from Brent 'China' Myron, AKA the Factory Spanner located in Temecula, CA. I am dying to hear this thing bark. Thinking it should look pretty good sitting in the blue frame.
