Rich painted it for Fritz; why doesn't he just ask Fritz?

Maybe it was just too disconcerting having Sugar Ray Leonard (I really don't know) staring at you all the time.

I don't know, or know of, Byron either. Unless my crusty old ass forgot. Who is he?

I should not speak on others behalf but i know a lil something on the topic. Byron was someone that made Fritz happy. Seeing the tank made him happy. But now he started to pick up that it more looks like someone else. No longer Byron. This made him less happy, so he covered it.

Hey, it's a strange world. I just ride in it.

Luckily, his feelings on Q-Bert seem to remain steadfast.

You all can stop playing, it's actually Bill Cosby, zippity zop

Goddamn this is a funny thread!

Yes it's my tank from my bike:



.

Dolce pretty much nailed it.
I had Rich paint it back in the winter of 2009/2010 with the airbrushed likeness of Byron Stonecypher. Around this time I began a new job working for a black man named Frank.

Frank is a total dick. Frank looks very much like Byron. I very recently told Frank to go Fuck himself and walked out/quit my job.

Now when I look down at my tank, I see Frank, and this pisses me off. So I covered the face with vinyl decals for the time being.

Nothing at all wrong with Ryzarts paint, It has held up great. I'm very happy with the job he did for me.

Oh, that old story.

That's why you never get women's names tattooed on you, or inspirational co-workers painted on your tank.
