Turned on my 1950's South Bend 10L lathe and milled on my 1950's Index vertical mill. All work down by spinning the handles and wholly without the use of CNC or other computerized equipment... I am such a dinosaur but really enjoy the "hand-crafting" involved in manual machining.

Love how this bike looks... super-aggressive and bare-knuckles with that extra-bright FlameThrower Customs' tank installed.

I really like the "dramatic effect" of the black & silver with the drop-shadowing. I want to paint one of my own projects in a similar style!

This bike is now at the shop of Austin Martin Originals to do perform some weld repairs, then will go to Old Skool Choppers for wiring, then return to my FlameThrower Choppers shop for final completion and installation of the custom-painted tins (which I am just beginning).

This is from one of my own projects... actually it's the hardtailed '77 Ironhead Sporty choppa that I'm building to be a raffle bike to benefit my son's travel baseball team.

This set is ready to be returned to Larry and installed onto his choppa. Lots of HOK Base Black, Kandy Teal and Rainbow Mini-Flake.

This Donn's second custom-painted helmet from FlameThrower Customs... kudos to Donn for being such a cool repeat client. This is HOK Zenith Gold with additional gold flake, topped with mostly HOK Apple Red Kandy along with a couple other kandy kolors.
