I ended up throwing a couple things on ebay. The first is the most fresh copper headlight. Second is a brass Pioneer 400 taillight I did a while back, but the buyer dropped off the face of the earth. Check the link on the top right. If you like either, we can talk.

Fulton Paint Works. I am also sending him a Sportster tank to do up. He seems to be one of the very few guys who "get it"when it comes to paint. I am way stoked.

This one is hands down the smallest, coolest one yet. If I had to guess the age, I would say it is from the early 30's. It was well taken care of, not a dent or scratch anywhere, but the original paint had seen better days. Could not find a maker's mark anywhere on it. The halogen bulb just fit...it is bright as day. I put in some nice copper accents, and gave it an easy mount. If you like it, maybe we can work something out.

Pretty stoked. Got a couple tickets to see RANCID. It's always nice to see a band on their home-turf, and it can't get much closer than The Warfield in S.F. Saturday, September 10th. The tickets were $20 each, somehow my online total got to be $70 for the pair. Fees and taxes. That's extortion. It costs a lot to be punk.

I used to be in a pretty tight knit and small car club. Just a few guys, here in Northern California.....no stress. We were mainly just like-minded individuals who would sit and drink beers together, bullshitting the night away. Late one night we came up with the most choice name ever. Haters Car Club. So we scraped up some cash, and put it together for some plaques to be made. I designed the plaque, and off the design went. We get the plates, attach them to our rides, and are rollin' on cloud 9. A couple months later, I get a few disturbing pictures sent to me. Long story slightly shorter, it is a pic of a very similar plaque. Turns out it was stolen by some real-life Germans. They somehow got a pic of the plaque or maybe even a casting from the foundry? Well, these krauts proceeded to start up a German chapter without any of our knowledge. The shitty part is, a couple of their cars were better than ours. I remember they had this sweet Model A, all done up nice and traditional, sun-crazed creamy paint, simple flathead, tall bias plies on big wires, weathered king bee lights, 4" chop, etc.
Extremely rare, this is now going on my ride. A little showcase of my wares. Extremely heavy duty, solid copper, with a stainless trim ring. I put in a 4412 bulb. Tested out last night on the way home from work. Now I just need to make a matching taillight!?
