Up on deck next is a Huntsman with room for 40mm tires and built for a 2×11 setup as well as Disk Brakes. Parts kit included ENVE Tapered Disk CX Fork, Thomson Collar and a Cane Creek 110 headset. This one’s headed north to Vermont and will cruise a mix of dirt roads and pilot the owner over that next hill to destinations unknown. This particular powder coat is a two stage candy blue. Base layer of chrome gets applied, baked and then a translucent blue clear is applied for the second coat/baking. Only trouble is that this particular candy was giving the powder shop the fits. So she had to go back 2 times before it was “just so”. I take a lot of pride in my work and the paint or powder needs to reflect that. QC is key and the powder shop was good to stick with it to solve the problem and make things right. Sometimes that happens and so it goes with the powder process. But, the result is drop dead gorgeous (in my opinion) and worth the fuss. I finished things off with the new metallic silver top mount decals. Here’s a few shots from the studio for all to enjoy. Parting shot.
