Kick-Ass Custom Motorcycle Paint. I need your help. Please!!!

The Flow Custom Bobber Chopper Paint

Here is the paint scheme I came up with on the computer using Photoshop. I decided on naming the bike The Flow. Like, “Go with The Flow” and also the mental state of being fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus.

John the Painter, a kick-ass custom motorcycle painter and airbrush artist here on Long Island is having a contest on ClubChopper. I would have to say he is one of the best around. And not just here on Long Island but worldwide. The dude has some serious skills!

It would be greatly appreciated if you could help me out. If you have a few minutes, here’s what I need you to do:

  1. Click this link Paint by JTP and join the forum by clicking the register button at the top.
  2. Check your email and click the confirmation link.
  3. Then go back to Paint by JTP, make sure you’re logged-in at the top right then go to the last page and at the bottom of the page reply in the big box with something like, Nice work John, give Mech72 a free paint job. But write something unique, do not cut and paste, because the website will think it’s SPAM.

That’s it! Thanks!


Chopper Seat with Mini Shocks

Ok, back to the build. As you can see below, the first thing I did was find the center of the seat pan so I can drill and weld in some bolts. Then I picked up this killer seat hinge from Fabricator Kevin and tack welded it on the frame, making sure it was aligned with the backbone and level. After bolting the seat on I tacked on the shocks. I ended up re-welding the top of the shocks a little further back to lower the seat pan. The seat pan and shocks are from Guilty Customs.

Wired it up and ready to fire it up.

I am just too damn excited to continue to post the build in succession. Lets fast forward a bit to this past Sunday 6/13/10. After mounting all the components and a tedious wiring job (you’ll see later how I crammed 10 pounds of shit in a five pound bag). I bring you this little video. The quality sucks, sorry about that, the next one will be higher quality. Remember to crank the volume! Oh and dont worry I’ll still post the build progress.
