Where The Rubber Meets The Road

Here’s the start of the Romney Middle School “Pride Runner” for the 2018 Motorcycle Cannonball. A shout out to Ms. April Corbin’s 6th grade classes to let them know that the bike is just getting started and we will see you at the start of your 7th grade year with a completed bike right before we leave for the Race! Sorry, but work seems to get in the way of progress. 😜. Feel free to stop by this summer and check on the progress!

Parts have been disassembled, gone through, sandblasted and prepped for re-use. Here’s a few pictures of the prep, priming and painting process.

A filler primer on some of the crusty pieces and regular primer on the rest before she gets her colors— RMS Pioneer Blue and Grey (only we used silver metallic for a sparkle)

Wheels were assembled next with the brake drum and axles
