Interesting tanks, a lil wyld for me but they are done right.. only one I noticed that kinda annoyed me was the last one with the realistic flames.. the flames were done ok.. BUT the scallops of the flames are facing the wrong way.. should be pointed away from skull not towards it.. But better then what i can do..

Here are a couple of mine. Base coat done by me with rattle-can satin black. Pin stripes buy a guy with a ton more talent than myself!

Thanks 62 Ironhead!

The stripes were done by a guy that has been doing stripes for over 50 years. He was amazing to watch, and had some pretty cool stories. He pinned all my tins, and my helmet. Only charged me $140.00, and I have about $20.00 into the rattle-can. So, for $160.00 I have one mean @$$ custom paint job. IMO it's better than some of the $3000.00 paint jobs I've seen. Of course I'm a lil biased.... it's my bike and all! ha ha!
