Debbie Deluxe – Probike Custom Build

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

Did some work on this custom project from Probike Syd Harley Davidson. You can see the full Debbie deluxe project on Probikes facebook page HERE Believe it or not it started out as a 2012 Softail !

The Pinstriping and lettering that I did is shown blow and was made to color match the pinstripes done by Probikes inhouse custom paint shop Ivves Custom Lack. They did an incredible job on this and it was a pleasure to add to the top notch custom finish they laid down on this sucker.. !

As for the helmet the FXH design was the work of Probikes Graphic Designer, Johan Sandell of the Ad FirmSomeguys (he is also the owner of the bike). For the Pinup I enlisted the help of Swedish Star model Calamity Amelie who provided just the pose I was looking for, see her photo below..

So quite a build, soon to be published in a leading Swedish MC mag I here. Total success in giving a modern bike a classic custom look I would say.

Scratch repair with lettering and design

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

The triangle pennant background here did a good job covering up some heavy scratches on this Roadster’s Trunk lid .. Look forward to seeing it out this summer, the colors should go along well with the paint scheme of silver black and maroon.

Harley Davidson JDH 1929

Sunday, March 24th, 2013

Here is the striping competed on a full restoration of a Harley Davidson JDH form 1929. While the standard Harley Color for ’29 was Olive Green with Maroon  striping and a Gold centerline, Special color options where available by request. These colors included  Azure Blue, Police Blue, Coach Green, Maroon, Fawn Grey and Cream. As you can see here my customer chose to restore his bike in the Maroon color scheme witch got Brass (gold) striping with black centerlines and edging.

The logos, patent and trademark decals, are  replicas and applied to match the original measurements.

I am looking forward to seeing this thing all built up, maybe sitting at someplace like Abombers this summer.. in the sun-
