    I flatly refuse to view your resto thread any further until you provide a link or photo of Sophie's naked busom. You're focusing on the wrong project, man! Dozens are waiting!
    I believe we have run out of trolls.

    Just curious - what does it cost you to get a frame powder coated over there??? Dido on Sophie's photo - maybe she would like to be on the new cafe racer's calendar for 2012...

    That's like under 100 dollars US - your kidding... The best pricing I've got here is like 500 US...It cost that much to sandblast and rattle can the frame.

    I forgot to add - Sophie's picture would be on every month, we would just have to figure out how to photo-shop her picture with a different bike for each month..

    for a frame, swing arm and yolkes (triple trees) the cost is £95, that includes blasting and masking off threads. i get it done locally, 2miles away, i take my parts on monday and pick them up tuesday.

    ive asked sophie, she says no sorry, mainly because of her husband, she darent ask him and he would 'kick off' if she did it behind his back and he found out.. but no fear boys, i can model for ya
