Painting step 4: pinstriping

I added a gold pinstripe between the main color and the accent color, to mark the transition to the chrome end of the fork, and around the lugs to accentuate them.

As I put the bike back together, I simplified it: I took out the cantilever brakes, and put a coaster brake hub on the back wheel instead. It has the great bare bone looks of a fixie, but with the added advantages of being able to coast, and brake.
A sweet track bike to ride fast in the city!
