... is very strong in this one. Built by Billy Budde's from san Leandro, CA. Great idea for paint I must say, the marbelizing effect is great, looks like "Vreeble"..

Ofcourse it's on the cover!


  1. OMG you take me back... i used to stop in at billy budde's store weekly, it was just a few blocks from arlens. i bought some amazing custom leather there! im going to link back to your page from my blog for more peeps to see your post, this is a fantastic flashback, thank you!!!!!!!

  2. I see what you mean about that paintjob we talked about today. The marblizing effect is called Eerie Dess from Metalflake, topped off with Kandy Kolors. I have it in stock...

  3. I own one of Billy's early 1970's body kits for an early Honda 750 Four. Painted and signed by Frank. It is a series of mural scenes including a painting of the Golden Gate Bridge on one panel. Beautiful work that has survived the test of time.

  4. Nice Tom! Is it never mounted on a bike? or was it stripped off a bike? Amazing that you still have it! Most of this stuff was probably destroyed...
    Are you planning on using it some day??
