Sunday Afternoon at the Stark County (Canton, Ohio) Sweap Meet

We set up a table and booth to display custom paintwork.  Talked to a TON of people and handed out about 200 business cards.  My lovely wife attended with me, which was great and really made the day more enjoyable and pass more quickly.

Completed Custom-Fabbed Tank for Thomas in Oklahoma

I know Thomas from an on-line Forum and I custom-painted a helmet for him a couple years ago.  His rubbermount Sporty chop is bad as hell... a rigid frame with massive rake and super-long Sugar Bear front end.  This tank was custom-fabbed with a couple "recesses" built into it... a veritable playground of opportunities for custom-painting.  We decided on "blue & gold" then Thomas simply instructed me to "do my thing"... and this is where it ended up!  Thomas is a U.S. service veteran and I salute his service... he recently relocated from Sin City back home to Oklahoma and this tank will be shipped to the Sooner State real soon.

Eddie from the STL installed his freshly-painted tank and snapped some pics!

I really like the way the splash of vibrant colors sets off against the all-black Sporty.  Thanks, Eddie, for the opportunity to paint this one for ya!

Custom-Painted Helmet for Aaron's Dad

This "Star Wars" looking helmet arrived from Aaron as a brand-new bright white lid.  Then I custom-painted the helmet to match the black/gray/silver tribal scheme of his Dad's RoadStar tank.

I have been diggin' these KR-style tail sections from Sporty Specialties for years and I'm totally fired-up that I'll be installing it on this '73 XLCH that I just purchased from my buddy, Rico the "Ironhead King"!

Simple Set of Black Tins In the Spray Booth Tonight....

This set is for my buddy, Rico.  Gonna be installed on a '73 Ironhead in a vintage Amen plunger frame... very cool bike.  Basic black with hand-painted red pinstriping... classic look.
