Yeah clear is what I wa thinking but oil might tint the metal a bit making it look a bit more rustic
I'm pretty happy with where I'm at. This is just a mock up to get me excited,It's not perfect and that's the way I wanted it. I don't want it to look like I was lazy either. It has A few small specks here and there from the previous paint but I think it adds to the story a bit. I plan on painting the canal / part that goes over the frame black.
Got these Magura grips as well
Things are coming along. Gotta get the fenders off now and start primer there. Gonna go black on those. I'm debating about doing the rear or eliminating it with boxer metals block off fender plates. But then I gotta figure out the tail light. Ungh. @bmweuro do you have a pic of a bike w the fender plates instead of a fender?
