there's a kat here in town that's got a pretty weird bobber'd 50's NSU (!)
not much to it but this odd two stroke twin engine and two 21" wheels, but all the steel has been hot blued and oils. It makes an interesting statement for sure.

one of my plans for my cb175 hardtail ill be building next year ;)

i do not have access to our photos right now, but a quick google search... here they are
vein... they are all one shot powders, so do not worry about it, the only diff is our costs are just a touch higher... some wrinkles are really cool, i am doing my bobber frame in black velvet, it is flat black but looks like velvet, and has a weird texture to it

I  want to do a bike in Burnt Penny copper from PPG. We did it for a display that went into Home Depot. The color was sexy as hell, exactly they way a burnt penny would look like, a little texture on it as well.

My Matco 6 Series tool box is done in the same finish as above, Black Silver Vein. Its a tough finish, and looks cool.

thanks for the tips JRK!!

have you considered hitting the frame with gun blueing??

no i havent, but it sounds like a really interesting finish....... i need to check it out.

you would have to wipe the bike down constantly with oil because it will rust. Now if you blue it and clear coat that would be interesting. Though I'm not sure how that would end up looking.

This group used gun bluing and another patina with clearcoat to get this effect. I'm thinking about maybe something like this if for a tank.

OK, glad to know your not dead! You have been thinking for a l...o...nnnnn...ggggggggg ass time! Its a rebel dude! Aside from completely redesigning the entire frame, making new motor castings, fabing your own tins, and forging new parts from the flames of hell; you only have so many options! I hope you shock me though!

Not trying to bust your balls man, just givin you a little hell, I was wondering were the hell you had gone?
