Gold Leaf & Lettering

Added gold leaf, outline and lettering to Arilds Harley Davidson Sportster gas tank.. pinstriping next and then deliver it to the custom builder which will put the Showel Bobber together..

Used 1-shot Ivory, a mix of Emerald green and black for the outline, a mix of black and super gloss tinting clear for shadow to make them a little transparent and 1- shot gold size for the gold leaf..

Flake - Racing Green "47"

Kristian from KS Lakk have painted this Sportster gas tank in Racing Green flake and are almost ready for me to gold leaf and pinstripe.. you can see the process of the painting here.

Pinstriping & Gold Leaf

Mr. Yazid, the owner of the bike just sent me a couple of pictures of his Indian Larry gas tank attaced to his Harley Davidson Sportster which I gold leafed and pinstriped.. My good friend Bønna from CBB made the custom gas cap in brass.. the bike is now ready for the roads of Brunei in Asia.

A new "47" project..

I just finished an Indian Larry gas tank for a Harley Davidson Sportster in Brunei which was named "fortyseven" and yesterday there was a new "47" project.. This Sportster gas tank will be placed on a rigid Triumph and the tank will eventually be racing green flake with "47" in gold or copper leaf and pinstriping.. Looks like "47" is a popular number these days.. The other tank was called "fortyseven" since the owners father was born in ´47.. this tank, due to the owner used to work with 47.000 high voltage electricity and friends just called him 47..

Leather - Motorcycle Seat

Finished yet another custom leather seat today.. this one was a bit tricky, since the back fender is attached to the "tale" and the seat are "resting" on the back fender as it would on a hardtail..
