So I completed the E3 Fat Boy I decided to do for myself.  Picked it up in a lot of 4 razors.  It wasn't in horrible shape but there were some bites here and there in the plating.

That was enough for me to feel at liberty to attack with extreme prejudice.  Razor was ultrasonic cleaned to remove the bulk of the internal scum and then taken apart.  Have to say the ultrasonic worked well, only the most hidden and impacted junk was left.  From there everything was blasted down with the exception of the adjuster collet.  

I then refinished it in Black Chrome and brushed stainless.  The adjuster spring was redone in copper and the accent band was done in copper as well.  The bulk of the razor is in black chrome with the riser/end caps in brushed stainless.  Adjustment numbers and dots filled in white.

Without further delay, I present to you, the Fat Boy! (Apologies the middle pic is a bit blurry but it's the only one I took that shows the riser bar across the top.)

I have to admit it does look excellent, and I am a something of a traditionalist, too. Good job! I'd certainly love to own one of those. Very nice indeed.

Great work and fantastic result! As others mentioned, you would have them lined up if you chose to do this by request. One of the most unique refinish jobs I have ever seen. Thumbsup
