Slims fab ironhead for Leo

This bike came to me long ago for a hardtail oil bag ,and the basic chopper gig...then he came to me with an old HD springer to get installed....Then the man behind the bike, Santa Ana s LEO wanted the thing cleaned up and a few things changed such as a disc conversion ,I did this using a sotail master and a 2000 sporty caliper.I built him some super curly rabbit ears,mounted his bates light,reshaped his early triumph fender and hung it under a 19" sissy bar I built holding his tailight and lic. plate. After all was fabbed i pulled it down to a bare frame and blasted the frame, etch primed it, and shot it with laquer(piano black) and heavy laquer clear. Same treatment went into the oil bag and fender. I then put the bike back together for Leo to bring home( sounds easy doesnt aint) and i forgot a bunch of fab stuff i did such as pipes ,regulator mount,master cyl mount,right side control etc...Im probly forgetting some shit I did, but fuck it He is riding it and it all worked out, Slim 951 217 8814 Thanks again for the work LEO!!

Thanks so much to Adri, everyone who came and all of our sponsors for making this such an epic event; Levis Vintage Clothing, Peligroso Tequila, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Tres Noir & SRCE Production

Spare Arts Motorcycle Show - Part 3

I'll wrap up the inaugural Spare Arts Motorcycle Show with two Sportsters.  First up is this XL1200 with fantastic paint.  I'm not sure if Tony is the name of the owner or the girl on the tank.  Regardless, it's epic.

This ironhead won Best in Show.  As far as I can tell, it's missing a few parts so it's not even a running bike, but that doesn't keep it from being awesome.

What you should be asking yourself at this point is, "was that a handpainted sign featuring a manatee drinking a can of Duff beer?"  Yes, yes it was.  I regret not going in that bar.

On the way home, I decided to do something I've wanted to do for years - see Eve of Destruction at Elko Speedway.  I kept the kids out late for a night of racing.  They loved it but both were really tired by the time we got home.

At one point, three guys on motorcycles put on a stunt show.  This guy did a big burnout.  I'm sure they advertise the tire as producing red smoke, but it looked pink from where I sat.

Highlights included Flag Pole races, figure-8 school bus racing, and a big (deliberate) bus crash at the end of the night.  Note the school bus stood up on its end.  It was the target of the final crash.

Here's a short video that I took of the grand finale. Enjoy!
