Don't say don't cause I've already started sanding. Lol. So long story short my wife's friend was riding my bike, needless to say I learned a very expensive lesson. Don't let any one ride your bike. The bottom end bearing failed, maybe do to wear or the guy having it pinned in 5th. Any ways now that I'm done crying about to you guys. I'm in the process if rebuilding it and I figured since I have it all tore down now would be the time to paint it. Do to the fact that he hasn't given me any compensation and having to purchase a new case I'm a little short on funds so powder coat is unfortunately not a option so I'm rattle caning it. If you guy have any tips or suggestions I would greatly appreciate it. Oh and thanks guys for letting me vent.
