Well some were asking about seeing the bike when it was done. Here it is 2004 HD night train.

Its kind of a woodworking project since we traded labor for labor he did the bike and I’m going to do cabinets and/or an outside bar, meanwhile I’m working on a shotglass display case for him (I’ll post it when its done)

Back to the bike my buddy did hours of prep work getting the dents out, plus quite a bit of mechanic work to get it running tip top. Then a coat of black, then he had me mask out the graphic line down the center which in the end is the black line. Shoot the galaxy grey and use saran wrap to rip off some of the paint to give it that marbled look, mask off the bottom and shoot the top with 7 coats of candle apple green, unmask and shoot it all with 6 coats of clear, sand and buff to mirror finish.

Mann he did a great job I love this bike, you local guys “spudhog” and whoever else lets go for a ride….

Nice, breezy ride!

I bet you can put a walnut insert in the dash or??? Then it will qualify and add a nice touch too.
