Custom Dragon Unicycle – powder coating and lettering


My unicycle friend Dragon has just started college at UCSC and needed a 29er to get around. I fixed up an old 29’er that I had around.

The frame was chromed steel, so I did some easy cleanup on it with acetone and a wire wheel:

I put on some high temp tape and printed out DRAGON on some paper. I taped it over the high temp tape:

I carefully cut it out with a sharp exacto:

Then peeled the tape away:

Sprayed it with powder and did a gradient fade:

I baked it and pulled the tape off:

Looks cool!
