So I finally tore my bike down for paint. A local guy named Smokey painted it for me. She's not together yet and the photos are pre-clear coat but I had to share. The damn bike is finally getting close to my original vision. One piece at a time in the very rare moments I agree to get off of her long enough to tear into her.





Here she is just before paint

I doodled all over her with sharpie before we sent her to paint

And here she is the very first day I got her. I refer to it as her Prince Purple Rain phase.


I follow up once she is together. Should happen fast. I plan on being at Slab City Riot.

Doodle it again over that flakejob before he puts the clear on!!
I do plan on doodling all over it. I will do so over the clear and then seal it again. I want the doodle to float over the flake. ;)

Cant wait for pics of the final product. I love the simple but flashy gold flake. But for the record, the sharpie on the flat white looked kind of cool too.

HOK Pagan Gold over silver?
Nope. It's a custom blend of a HOK flake and a Roth Flake. The base is a golden tone. I wanted it GOLD. Not too black not too yellow. I think we nailed it.

Looks good. I'll bet it looks great when it's all back together! Not that it matters, it's your bike, but glad to see you put a Sportster tank back on it.

That paint is sic. I cant wait to see it in the sunshine. You gotta let me know when she is back together and we can do the photos again. Killer color choice.
