Helmet That I'm Just Completing For A Local Client

The helmet is a really nice brandy-new Lick's... very small and compact.  This is just gold leaf and hand-striping and lettering with HOK striping enamel paints.

Travis' Alien Tank & New Gas Caps Ready To Ship Back To Alberta, Canada

This tank is all buffed-out and ready for the trip back to Alberta. I also machined a couple caps for him which have as small of an O.D. as possible in order to hug the O.D. of the gas fillers.

Bobby's Shovel Tins Re-Assembled

Very, very cool Shovel that I am proud is now wearing tins which I painted.  This bike is rolling around the Denver, Colorado area... so if you're in the Mile-High City keep a lookout for Bobby and this Shovel.

New Paint for a 1969 Honda SL350

This is a super-cool little bike owned by a buddy in Montana who's a former MX racer from "back in the day".  These tins were in fantastic condition and really just the paint was all faded out.  He is building the bike to be rce-ready... no headlight or other lights whatsoever.  Hell, he lives in Montana so who is really gonna bitch about it, right?  After some VERY modest bodywork to repair some small dings, I painted it with a mix of HOK Orion Silver and Galaxy gray, sprayed Lil Daddy Roth Surfite Silver flake, then three coats of HOK Kandy Cobalt Blue mixed at a very modest 10%.  Next will be stenciling of the OEM "HONDA" on the sides and the OEM stripe on the sides of the tank... all rendeered in white.  Clearcoat and done!

Custom-Painted Baseball Helmet for my Son's Baseball Team

I custom-painted this ratty old cast-off helmet and donated as a fund-raiser to the Chippewa Chiefs team... the travel baseball tean for which my eldest son plays and I coach.  It will be silent-auctioned at the Octoberfest scheduled for this upcoming Saturday.  I went for a "stylized flames" look which should appeal to the 11-y/o and 12-y/o boys so they will bug their parents to bid high!

Here We Go Again....

This is a cool frisco'ed Sporty tank and flat fender for Bobby in Denver, Colorado.  This basecoat is HOK "Zenith Gold" metallic Shimrin topped with Lil Daddy Roth "Warm Beer" gold metal-flake and a couple coats of HOK Intercoat Clear.  Now it's time for the real fun to get started on the gaphics layout!  These are for Bobby's shovelhead chop.

Airbrushed Rubbermount Sportster Derby Cover

This is a 1940's pin-up girl originally rendered by Pinder... this is in HOK Intercoat Clear but I'll likely finish it in satin clearcoat to keep down on the glare!

Old/new Bell Helmet Resurrected

I've had this nasty old POS Bell helmet for a few years.  Finally got off my ass and painted it for myself to wear.  Not too bad for a nasty old thing with the liner crumbling and the chalk-white exterior all chipped and gouged.  It's HOK Zennith Gold, Lil Daddy Roth Ghetto Gold flake, then lots of various HOK Kandy Kolors including Teal, Organic Green, Cobalt Blue, Purple and Brandywine.

Returned From Riding at the "Tail of the Dragon"

I had an opportunity to travel to Eastern Tennessee and ride my hardtailed, kick-only '71 Sportster chopper with a whole group of my QCB compatriots.  What a great trip and what an incredible piece of road... cannot wait to return there just as soon as possible!  Here are a few pics of me riding....
