Cortez The Killer

I'm thinking this $5 swap meet special seat will work well with the Frank and line up pretty good with the passenger seat.  I'm debating on recovering it or leaving it in its original, ripped, dirtbag look.
Random parts garage pile.

Latest art in the psychedelic 70's lair.

Live it love it.

My old man "Now and Then" at Virginia Beach.  The only thing that's changed is that Bud bottles aren't as cool anymore!

Snow White

Today was a beautiful day, well in the 60's; so I got some minor sanding done on the Frank and busted out the white paint for a nice basecoat over the primer.  She's looking good, and I always loved white bikes so this will be hard to paint over!  Nah, but it will seriously give a nice base to some of the small, wild designs I have in mind for the finished product.
I was going to have it painted by a guy I know for next to nothing, but it will now all be done with spray cans, which will be more fun.  And hey, I'm not building a show bike!

Coolest Fender Ever?


I forget where I got these pictures from (Jockeyjournal?), but man this has to be one of the wildest fenders I've seen.  Some lucky guy out there has this, and you could seriously build a bike around it.

Right On

Some fun pictures to help the cabin fever.




$9.95 for a warbird?  I'll take 100.

Progress

Jay's FLH is ready for a new coat of black and a simple p-pad.
Gotta paint the frank and slap her on!

Ken's still not back!

Silent John sold his servi-car but it still deserves a pic.

Last night's shredding.

Art Show

Tonight, Highland Lakes, Behr's house; is it official?  Not hardly, but drinking, with bands, in a homemade gallery can only equal fun on a Friday night.  And  I have a bunch of stuff hung and it gave me a reason to get my ass in gear!

Clear Derby

Until I find myself an entire clear primary cover, this cool piece will do.  I have the matching inspection cover, but I like my mids too much to mess with that.  (Man, the flash really brings out all the rust and oil!)

Golden Oldie


Black and gold has always been one of my favorite color combos, and this chop takes it to the extreme!  I mean come on, gold plated wheels, girder, risers, bars, kicker arm, pushrod covers, pegs, oil tank, brake lever,  every nut and bolt, sissy bar; and the icing on the cake:  a gold coffin air cleaner and Finch pawn light!  A gorgeous ride.

Ken's New Seat!



Man, is this thing gonna look radical on Ken's rigid shovel he's building.  I'm so psyched he got this; this spring is going to be one far out trip!  Strange Days have found us, and our mind bending moon machines will soon be cruising the earth.

Another Good Night

The Frank is looking pretty good.  Just a couple more touch ups are needed, then time for some paint.

Tools of the trade.
Of course I had to take a break to draw a nazi viking.
