Re: Ugly and Funny Bikes... the "Short Bus" of pic threads..

That's like saying I'm sick of Philly hipsters with their tight neon pants, handlebar mustaches, fixie bikes, and American Spirits. You may be sick of them but they're not going anywhere. It's your...

Re: Is it the painters job or am I just a dumbass?

Re: Is it the painters job or am I just a dumbass?

Re: Is it the painters job or am I just a dumbass?

Rob Axel... Tank ALONE. Like I said, I have no problem paying for good work, but now that I see he charged me way above the competitors and to be honest, it's not 100% what I even wanted. Now I will...

Re: Is it the painters job or am I just a dumbass?

Good quote. The $1,200 isn't the kicker, I have known the guy for years. Long enough to call him a friend. Been to his house for BBQs, hung with the guy at car shows. He has been a painter for a...

Re: Is it the painters job or am I just a dumbass?

Bobscogin, It was all HOK products as far as I know. I saw the prep and the bare tank was sanded all the way up to where the rubber in the cap meets the tank.

Is it the painters job or am I just a dumbass?

I have never had anything professionally painted in my life. So I got a brand new gas tank, dropped it off at my painter, gave him money and that's the story. I have heard that I should have even a...

Re: "Chasin' Dreams" Ironhead build

Little update. Got a few hundred shake down miles on her. It's getting better and better as I work out the bugs. Dropped the new tank on tonight, some new hardware, and new fuel lines. Hard tail...

Re: Videos ?

GoPro Hero 3 Silver edition, 30 fps. The audio is awful, camera was clamped to the frame, solid motor mounts, and that front end doesn't offer much comfort
