Andors Bagger..

The bagger is done.. The bike is rebuilt by my good friend Bønna which unfortanly was never able to see it finished. It´s silver leafed with 276 in STP style as a racing number and pinstriped by me, and painted by Kristian Sabel. There is also a pinstriping skull on the gas tank and pinstriping on back and front fenders and on the back of each side bag..

I´ll try to take som pictures of it next weekend when I´ll visit the owners club party at Høyangbjørn MC :-)

Not only work..

Even tho customizing bikes is a whole lot of fun, there must be time to saddle up and do some riding as well, so a little while ago I visited my good friends at Lowbrows MC in Hicktown.. A strange little place with a pig farm, saloon and a festival with international names on the west coast. It was a great weekend, a good party and I have pinstriped two of the bikes, and gold leafed one of them, so it was cool to see them in action as well!

A little further...

A little further.. Momento Mori.. don´t mix it up with the famous Latif phrase Memento Mori (remember you should die)

Leather - Solo Seat in Progress

Started on a new custom leather solo seat for a motorcycle.. No one specific, so it´ll be for sale some time when it´ll be finished I guess. Wanted to try out the engraved type of scroll design.. Not sure what to put in the text field yet, so if you got any good ideas? :-)

Still haven´t decided if there will be lacing or ordinary stitches either..

Singer 29k-4 Cobbler for Leatherwork

Got my self yet another Singer 29k sewing machine I´m thinking to use for some leatherwork.. the other one is a Singer 29k-3, and now a 29k-4.. the other one skipped a stitch here and there, oh and guess what, so does this, obviously a common issue.. hmm, that´s the back draw of buying unseen, but I got it pretty cheap tho.

It is pretty cool exept the stitch skipping. I just found out that can be fixed by replacing some small gears, so now I just need to find out what gears, where to get them or who can do it for me..

I like them original with the gold scrolls and stuff on them, but this is repainted black, so I guess it could be cool to pinstripe and gold leaf it since it´s already unoriginal..
