My latest project...Dave Hickey
May 11, 2003 5:16 PM
This started out as my new rain bike but I'm riding this more and more. I bought the frame(LOOK KG76), off Ebay and transfered components from my Bianchi. The name on the top tube is "Pirate Looks At 50". I'm a big Jimmy Buffett fan and 50 is only 5 years away. I have a set of old Dura Ace 7410 crankarms that I'm going to have powdercoated red. All my other bikes are classic design and components. I really want to personalize(pimp) this bike.

Imho, one of the advantages to a plainer bike is that they look better decked out with flashy cages, tape, wheels, etc.

You might as well powder coat the stem to match the crankset.
I'm thinking about that..Dave Hickey

I'm probably going to powdercoat the stem or look for a black Cinelli XA stem.
