Jonny Hunters bike...

... is *finally* finished!

Jonny has been a friend of mine for awhile. Not sure how we met. SCRAM!? Mark the Spark? The Catacombs? He's probably just one of those ubiquitous Madison people.

Jonny signed up on my waiting list way back in Feb 2006. I finished building the frame about 1 year ago which was right about the time that Jason (Sanchez Paintshop) was starting work on building a new shop. Jonny is also friends with Jason and was pretty insistent that Jason painted his frame since he was really into having people he knew be involved with the project. Jonny was pretty patient waiting Jason to get his shop up and running but when he learned that one of his bike polo friends from Milwaukee had moved out to Portland, OR and was painting for Vanilla's shop Coat he couldn't resist and got the ants in his pants. I was curious to see what sort of work they were doing my self so we sent the frame out to Coat for some paint. Jonny told them he liked green and to do what they want. The base (green color) is powdercoat and the graphics were done with wet paint. The graphics are a little busier than my normal designs, but its a nice change. The quality is excellent (as expected), but don't expect to see me offering them as an option for my paint as Sanchez Paint shop and Keith Anderson do equally as excellent of work and I have no reason to switch (other than this special project for a friend).
