Re: Mash Banger

I have built some really sweet vintage motorcycles; and nothing comes close to the spirit of this build! You have scored major props for this ride.

You also have stolen one of my votes. Dang You KutNhack.

Re: Mash Banger

Thanks for the props again you guys. It's cool that you are liking my style. Sometimes I feel way outside the box but I'm building this bike to please me first. Any others that like it, is just the icing on the cake. Any votes for Mash Banger will be sweeter yet.

Went to a cooper repousse workshop yesterday and pounded out a winged wheel design. Took six hours for the process from a sheet of copper to the finished design. The metal artist Laura Parker (Rusty) hosted the workshop at her gallery in Sacramento. She was the welder on the Monster Garage episode at the King's (Richard Petty Enterprises) shop where a stockcar was turned into a highspeed street sweeper. Rusty rolls in a flat black Corvette powered 1934 Dodge pickup. Very cool to know this gal.

You might see this ending up on a future build.

No work done on Mashie-missed 1 day.

Mash Banger has been at The Vulture's for a little art work. I guess you could call it non-epidermal tattooing. We will just have to wait and see what the "V" man comes up with.

I'm going through withdrawals not having Mashie around. Deadline for Behind Bars Sunny Side Up show is next Sunday. RRB#6 as you know is Monday the 1st. It's crash and burn time around here. How bout you guys not yet finished. I'll be taking it right up to the last minute.

No work done on Mashie-missed 2 days.

But The Vulture is making up for it so missed 0 days.

Should have new photos tomorrow on Monday so keep posted.

Re: Mash Banger

Man, I am so blessed. I always try to hang around with people smarter than me and maybe a little lucky to have an artists as friends. The Vulture laid lines on Mash Banger and brought this creation to a whole new level. I'm drooling and can't believe I own this rolling sculpture. The photos do not do this striping and artwork any justice. For those who ask, yes this is all hand painted and done by Sacramento's own The Vulture. I think I'm going to start calling "V" man Ray Von Vulture. Yeah I like that, Ray Von Vulture. Enjoy the photos boys and girls. See ya at the finish line.

Re: Mash Banger

the straight line work was all done in CHAMOIS, and a custom mixed green that I got from 2 parts CHROME YELLOW and 1 part EMERALD GREEN :mrgreen: . I call it "gang-green" :wink:

I had allot of fun painting on the Banger this weekend! I could sit and stare at this bike for hours!
glad you like my work Brother.

good luck to you and all the great builds here in BO#6!

Re: Mash Banger

Thanks you guys.

Mash Bangers going on a road trip to San Jose to enter it's first show at Behind Bar's Shinny Side Up. We'll be hob knobbin with INB, Wise Guy and Hard Luck. How cool is that to have four build off bikes at one show. I'll try to get a shot of all four contenders together and maybe the builders also in the pics.

Re: Mash Banger

Awesome road trip to Shiny Side Up in San Jose. Check it out in the events thread. While we were setting up a nice gal came over from the motorbike booth and asked me if I would start Mash Banger, huh? I guess the faux motor on Mashie is pretty convincing. We all got a chuckle from that. I think she was a little embareassed. Spelling error? I think not.

Mike S. was taking photos of Mashie while I was taking candid photos of Mike S. A few shots that didn't make the finished thread.

That is too funny!

I am baffled that Mash didn't get more votes.
It was an easy vote from me.
