I've been gathering parts since late November to build up a Nordest Bardino 3. Can't fully explain my reasoning for this frame. But I liked the geometry, style, color, etc.



Build will hopefully happen this week, but here's a little previous of some of the parts.

Here was the start of today. Couple parts aren't shown in this photo. Didn't quite finish, still need to cut the brake lines to length and they are unrideably long.

Curious, why would you want this coated on your garage floor?
