The Stepchild!

Originally built by my buddy mr Magic, but in my fostercare for quite some time now! 
For me it was the first ironhead I drove and never knew these things really fly! So when he told me he was thinking of selling it, I jumped on it straight away.
It's a totally different animal as a bigtwin. Lighter, narrower, faster and a totally different seating position all come to mind. Also the soft rear suspension make it a joy to drive, even over the cobblestones in the city. the new Avon tires help with fast cornering too
Bridge over the river Rhine
Also a lame attempt to imitate the picture that started mr Magic to build this bike

Jacked up! to overcome every obstacle!

Chrome everything

Expect the unexpected!

Well, no-one in my hometown expects to see a pink and white sportster flying by, thats for sure


Thumbs up for chrome drum brakes!

And a rare pic of me driving it! Thanks Ciro!

Tuesday Tankday

Today a couple of nice and colorful tanks by the legendary pinstriper Dave Bell, who unfortunatly deceased in 2012. In pinstriping he was famous for the use of blending colors in a line and  If you start googleing his name, the first stop is Irish Rich's place Applied Machete, where you can learn a bit more of the man. check it here
These tanks below were for sale on Ebay a while ago (and I think the mustang tank still is up for grabs)
So nice combination of metalflakes, candies and striping

Nice ones!
Ever try to make a perfect circle with a 2 inch long haired brush!?!

And another mustang tank that was signed by David in 1977

Color explosion!
I thought the eyeball was a Vondutch creation!?

the seller was aiming for the  size of the damage, but it gives a nice clear view on the cobwebbing

 another legendary paintjob by the man, you've probably seen this one before.

Showbike style

By the use of the different parts you can see this must have been built at the end of the 1970s
