It’s such a great era for bikes. And those Honda’s were just so damn clean. Have a great weekend!

Thanks man. It beats the hell out of staring at the TV with each other when it’s cold outside. I appreciate that on my Stanton bike. That was a crazy fun build!

Thanks man. I actually have the VH800 closed loop cabinet. It sure does a great job. It has definitely taken a lot of man hours out of my builds and customer builds.

The customer had them zinc coated again with the nipples. I also use a corrosion inhibitor spray that works well will a clear coat as well for the budget.

I just cleaned a set of Z spokes with my vapor honing cabinet and turned out great but before I owned my cabinet I would use a scotch bright drill attachment and MPPL maxima.
