beautiful weather in Brighton today for Brightona a large bike rally, Neil was kept busy striping and lettering all day.
some amazing bikes, and a really great Airbrush artist next to us...not the generic skull...and celtic crap with mask lettering...no a proper airbrush artist.... Colin from airbrush-art.co.uk ....pics tommorow
here are some pics to give you the vibe..and a video of Neil working.
we have received lots of complimentary emails about our bus roof, thanks to all those who contacted us, seems lots of people like a flower. Even bikers and mopar men!
We got an email from Jerome an upholsterer from France who liked it so much he has used it as influence on a scooter saddle. His work looks really first class so check-out his blog
Hello guys, I'm a french upholstery man, working for VW fans, and I like your awesome job, and specially you Bus, and the job pant you made on the roof!This week, I stiched a saddle of sccoter for my shom room, with inspiration of you roof. I hope It's not a problem for you, and if you want and have time to see my job, you can click here: http://sellerieguepe74.skynetblogs.be
Thanks for all, and for the dreams witch you transform in awesome paints.Best regards, Jérôme GOMEZ.
popped along to the London Cycle show at Earl's court and met the great Mario Cipolini...the lion king himself.
Probably one of the best sprint winners that road cycling has ever know......3 minute to 30 seconds of explosive energy....thats all you need!!
interesting that last year it was all about funky and retro fixies....they are so over now !!! Its all super light weight hybrid/commuter bikes in alu with carbon forks....super fast to ride but with mountain bike type geometry and straight bars and loads of time trialy looking road bikes covered in graphics.
Ace custom painter and ex-pat Matt Grimwood came by this week on a short visit back to Blighty. Of the many thousands of Harleys we have flamed, 'striped and lettered a large amount were done with Matt, whose prep' and paint takes some beating. Now based near Perth, check out his site trikpaint.com.au
We striped and gilded a lid for himto take backto Oz.
Congratulations to Jo Clifford on not only winning with the Pagan Princess earlier in the year at the Cali Classic, but scooping prizes on saturday and sunday in Vegas.NV
The Princess looks as good today as it did when it was finished a very fruitful colaboration with those Paintbox boys.
Another fruitful colaboration with them was on Tar Babe and Undedog 2 which no reside in the Wally Parks NRHA Museum in Pomona .Ca To have cars we've painted on show there is a proud moment for us.
despite a fairly damp day good fun was had by all at the well organised SSVC Brighton breeze.
here are a few pics pinched from facebook [thanks Alex, Loggy and Estelle]
we will be at Brightona bike show on brighton seafront on the 10-10-10. Neil will be striping bikes and we'll have a few t-shirts and striping kits for sale.
