So I got tired of painting stuff for everybody else and decided to paint my own bike. I ran into a guy at Lake of the Ozarks bikefest that had done a similar style of flames with his bike and he told me that he used his wifes scrapbook machine so I thought Id give it a try. The orange I used is called citrus fire and although you cant realy tell in this pic its loaded with metallic, same with the silver. Oh, and I added a saracen front fender too....

Haha! Thats funny. I had to buy a new cartridge for her cricut but im glad i did. The guy i talked to put a 1200 in the ball part of the flame (he was on a sportster) but i thought flames would be better. And here i thought i was being somewhat original....lol

Wow! Really nice paint, original but still attractive enough that it will be easy to sell when the time comes. Truly something to be proud of and that goes for both 417 and Ronc.

Does this mean you do or don't paint for others? I'm thinking about picking up the same fender for my custom but don't trust my painting skills in any way to be able to get it to match the stock passion red!

Well I'll be! That begs the question..if I purchased this fender and had it shipped to you for painting, what would that cost me? :)
