Seat bolts

The powder coated bolts worked out perfectly. It’s funny that every time I think the bikes are finished, I find a new idea to make them better. It’s amazing the difference a few bolts make in the overall appearance. I think I’m safe to say “the bikes are finished” but there’s a good chance I’ll find something else to powder coat!!

Hi Jay,

Looks splendid. You know I'm a fan of blacking out bolt.

Cheerio,

Roy

Thanks Roy! I didn’t anticipate the reduction in size by powder coating the bolts but I used a 7/32 Allen key to tighten them. I will tape off the bushing on the right side of the bike seats and have them coated as well. All this is R&D for my final model which is 98% complete. You are the Blackout King so always like to hear your comments!

Hi Jay,

Yes mate, always need to allow for the extra size when powder coating, found out the hard way. Sometimes a little gentle easing wth some wire-wool/find sandpaper and a little grease helps.

I had to add washers to my footboard due to this issue.

Still, worth the extra trouble.

Cheerio,

Roy
