Gold Leaf/Pinstriping - The Brunei Gas Tank..

I think this is more or less finished with this Indian Larry gas tank.. On the sketch I was planning to add some pinstriping on the side too, but when adding the stars, I feel it´s enough and more would only be a little "over the top" and messy... the colors doesn´t reflect right tho.. I have used 1-shot enamel, Ivory and Tan, but the flash lighten it all.. the Tan outline on the stars disappear totally..

Silver Leaf

A bike I silver leafed and pinstriped last year, and today was the first time I saw the bike almost completed when I picked up my next seat project.. at lest it looks like a finished bike, even tho there is a few things to do.. When totally finished the bike will be shipped to France and live his/her life under the sun.. 

Celtic Chopper Seat

Added some more dye to make a better contrast to the details on the viking/celtic dragon motive.. next step it to stitch it all up with kangaroo leather lacing..

Temporary "mockup"

Just a temporary "mockup" of the chopper seat to check if all parts fits as planned.. and I´ll add a burst leather dye, when mocked up like this, before lacing..
