Gold Leaf - Flake Sportster

Kristian´s blue flaked Sportster I gilded "Little Bastard" last year, is more or less finished.. the seat is in my shop for some custom leather work, but it´ll be on the road this autumn.. :-) It´s pretty much an original Sportster, with some custom paint, apes etc.. and it doesn't take much to make an Original pretty cool!

Harley Sportster - Project



Roger´s project which I will customise this autumn/winter with gold leaf, pinstriping, some lettering and a new leather seat with motive, after Kristian have done the paint job, which I think is going to be pretty cool.. We are trying to do a little combination of "old skool" and high tech/modern style..

Most of the bike is built by Custom Speed in Norway, including the frame and many one off custom parts..

Leather Craft - ´52 Panhead Project


Just got a new leather craft seat project, for a pretty wild 52 Panhead softail chopper with a 360 wide tire.. Panhead´s are absolutely one of my favourite Harley engines.. beside the Knuckle, and they look cool, even in these more "high tech" builds..

Gilding & Lettering

More or less done with the outline and shadowing of the gold leaf on my friends Sportster gas tank..

For this one I used House of Kolor "Royal Blue" and "Process Blue". I dont think I´m going to use HOK much more again.. 1-shot enamel is more glossy, more pigment, it flows better, it doesn´t dry as fast and is a little cheaper.. :-)

Anyway, now it´s time for my friend Kristian Sabel to add the clear to make the flake pop..

Gold Leaf - Little Bastard

Started to put some blue variegated gold leaf on a Sportster gas tank for a Harley bobber.. With a little outlining, shadowing and clear to make the flake pop, I think it might be pretty cool :-) or what do you think? :-)

Chalkboard Sign at il moro

Wasting some quality time at my favourite coffee shop "il moro" in Oslo and the owner asked if I wanted to do a chalkboard sign.. haven´t been playing with chalk since the school days, but the owner was happy about it and then I guess I should be too.. the other side will be done when having the next coffee. Guess I should wear my "will work for coffee" sign...
