Big Red gets dressed and Gypsy adds more bling!

Friday, March 11, 2011

Well, Stu liked my Iron Braid lever covers so much he had to get some of his own today. He picked a red that matched the bike's main color and a gold that matched the detail pinstripe. After a couple of hours of riding, looks like he'll have to trim off and inch or two.

The photo was taken from a strange angle...the fringe is much longer than it looks. LOL!

As for Gypsy, I found a great bike air brush artist and pinstriper at Daytona Speedway, Fuzzy. I had looked at work from several artists and the third one caught my eye. Not only was his work good, he had a sketch on the wall of a phoenix that grabbed my attention.

So I got that put on the gas tank, with different colors than the sample, and pinstriping to match on the front and rear fenders. I wanted to bring in the Sedona Orange that is the main color on the gas tank side panels.

Here we are just getting things set up...remember to click any photo to enlarge.

Here it is midway on the gas tank and working on the rear fender.

And here is the final product...I am VERY happy!!

Stu has decided to get some airbrush work done on the front of Big Red. We now plan to attend the Leesburg Bike Fest in early April and Fuzzy will do the work.

If anyone is interested in getting work done by Fuzzy, feel free to contact me and I'll give you his phone number to call him and get his schedule. He has no online presence. I also have his address in Oklahoma.

Ride safe,
Stu and Donna


  1. Donna -- your artwork is fantastic! Lookin' good.

  2. Wowzers! That is gorgeous! Very classy work.

  3. Classy INDEED, luv it....well worth the wait to find the "right" person for your ride.

    You will love the Leesburg Bikefest, it has grown so over the years, it is fantastic, great fellowship!

    Ride safe.

  4. Susan, I've been to Leesburg a couple of times back when my late husband and I lived in St Pete. Loved it...hoping it has the same flavor as it did back in 2003-2004.

  5. VERY nice! I have to chuckle when I read about Stu following along behind you to keep up with your bike improvements -- "can't have the lil' lady's bike lookin' better than mine!!!"



We're waiting.....
