The making of adidas Originals x Chairman Ting Custom Fixed Gear

See the video via Vimeo: www.vimeo.com/18626801

 

Custom built adidas fixie for our adidas x Forces of Nice art show collaboration in Hong Kong. The custom paint and illustration on the bike was done all by hand and took over 2 weeks to finish. The bike was generously donated by singlebikes.com while the front aerospoke wheel was purchased from Super Champion in Vancouver.

 

The bike was painted with Montana Gold spray paint and illustrated with various Sharpie Poster-Paint markers. In the final process it was triple coated with both Krylon acrylic crystal clear lacquer and Montana Gold T1000 Clear Lacquer glossy to protect the paint job.
