patches, bobbers and old knuckleheads

Here are a couple of hand painted leather patches that Casey gave me last week. They are amazingly detailed. The guy that painted them painted a bunch of ww2 bomber jackets for the Smithsonian. Check out his website, it is on the card above the patches. Before Casey headed back home for Wisconsin, he cut out a white moustache and set it on a picture of me that was on my kitchen counter. He is a stylist/designer for Harley, so I guess this is my personal HD 1 makeover. lol

We finished up the 41 yesterday. It started on the first kick. The Generator bearing is making a bit of a noise, so I will have check it out. Here is a pic of Brittney on it before test riding.

Here is the rear fender for a 45 bobber that I am working on. Brittney did the stripes on them. I didn't want the stripes to go off of the edge of the fender like stock bikes, so she put a point on each end. They turned out great and look amazing next to the wheels.

And the front fender.

  1. What is his website?, the company name doesn't really show up in any Google searches.
