Backpiece, Nice work Marco

In a completely different way some serious artwork is progressing too.
Marco from Skin-a-matic spend a few more hours on Manon's backpiece.
Its coming together nicely. I like it very much....................
That's good news I guess, being married to this walking artwork, haha.

Pinstripe, The last job done!

Tonight the paintjob got its final details.
Incastienen spend some of his valueable time to put his mark.
A long red one to be precise. I am a very happy guy, this finishes of the paintjob perfectly.

Bigtwin bikeshow... No Swede to be found!

Spend a few hours on the Bigtwin bikeshow in Rosmalen today. After visiting many of these type of shows, things appear to be more and more the same, lacking "new" stuff. That's why I started looking for the smaller things, the details that strike me and stand out.
This time I was struck by a paintjob. No idea who did it, but he/ she deserves a big compliment.

The other thing that I noticed.....No Swede on the show....they must have forgotten about them now everything needs to be oldskool and zero-styled. Opportunity??

nicked this foto from Chopadilics blog :-)
Nice primairy don't you think

Chrome won't get you home!

The appearance I have in mind for the S&S does not include chrome. I want the bike to have NO shiny bits except for the polished engine. Today I picked up some alu goodies from Rob Wijers who has a rotary finishing machine. It gives the aluminium a great mat finish. I like the texture.....nice....
