Here’s a little lettering job for a very cool Shovelhead, built with metal work by the one and only Le Beef. The tank was brought to me by Klas and Maria all the way from the the lil’ kustom town of Tidaholm on Sweden’s west coast. Although in some light the tank looks to be a White or very light pearly pastel mint green color, that quickly changes once the light hits it. Then you get a soft violet glow on the bright spots.. a very cool and flipped out effect.
For my part in the deal I dropped some sign painter style modified Old English (*cough* Dick Bird *cough*) on it with an outline with a split on the horizon for a kind of chrome effect. To lift the washed out top half there are some blings set on scattered on the sunnysides.
I am looking forward to seeing it all built up, stay tuned for pics of the completed bike till then heres a LINK to pics from Le Beefs blog. This is very nice bike, and it was an honor and a pleasure to paint on Le Beefs fine metal work, this thing is straight as an arrow.
