Painting

by Alain Panneton
In this issue we will meet another master of custom motorcycle painting and I will begin to show you how a motorcycle gas tank is painted, from the initial preparation to the painting, airbrush and final clear coat.

In last issue we met one of the true masters of airbrushing, Martin Bouchard, alias “airbrush Fitto”. While Fitto operates in Montreal, Quebec, we can find another master of airbrush and design at the other end of our great country – in Calgary, Alberta –, Blake McCully, better known as “Crosseyed”.

In addition to completing a degree in Graphic Design at the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary, Alberta, Blake attended the prestigious Masters of Illustration Program at New York’s School of Visual Arts. This experience provided him...

Hi Guys!

Well back to chatting again. Thanks for all your support, so I would know how to help or enlighten you. By popular demand frames is the elected subject, chassis for those with a fancy tongue. I was surprised with all the articles written about frames. It seems that’s what you want to know about.

The starting point to building a killer custom is to start with the frame. Add on glider only gives you a hot stock bike. But when you modify or replace your frame you can achieve a much higher level over custom. There is a big difference between sitting on a bike and sitting in a bike. If you are tall or short, long arms or short legs, if you put in 1,000 miles or 20,000 miles a year, making a frame fit you instead of you trying to be comfortable on a...

Hello,
I am writing this email to inform you that we now have a new magazine totally Quebec Made that talks mainly about custom American bikes. This new magazine is called Revolution Motorcycle Mag. Bike creators who would like to meet their peers and share their culture, their passion which is alive and kicking.

This is an art of its own. I bought the rag last week at the Bike & Tattoo show in Laval and it is very interesting. I recommend it strongly. It’s up to you of course, it’s only a suggestion.

You may find attached to this email the picture of the cover page of the first edition. 100 pages of great reading, enough to get you dreaming. In stores now.

Happy reading.

Larry Grossman
Some of you might already be familiar with the art of Mr. Larry Grossman, an art that truly depicts the lifestyle of yesteryear. His flare for drawing cool hot rods has sparked the interest of many, but he is most famous for his work in the movie industry.

He studied film and photography at the California College of the Arts. He is an award winning animator with his films “Rude Vagabond” and “The Big Sleeze”. He has worked with Disney Studios on the project “Tron” in 1981 as well as with Warner Brothers and Dreamworks.

He’s also touched the music business by illustrating album covers for the legendary Frank Zappa and Hank Williams Jr. Quite impressive...

Count's Kustoms
What do Ozzy Osbourne, Tomme Lee, Vince Neil and Nikki sixx of Motley Crue and Godsmack have in common? They’re all rock stars! They also have the same experts for their bikes which is Count’s Kustoms of Las Vegas.

Located in the world capital of fun and game, smack in the middle of the desert since 4 years now, this shop specializes in custom bikes and hot rods. Of course the location and the weather are ideal for riding these kinds of rides all year round. As a matter of fact sometimes it’s just too damn hot, total opposite of what we have to suffer here in our neck of the woods. No way we can ride in the winter time, although we certainly would like to.

As you walk into Count’s Kustoms you notice a well garnished showroom with choppers totally different and original one from the next. Although they have over 23,000 sq. ft., there is hardly an empty space: it’s all covered with fantastic looking vehicles. I saw Ozzy Osbourne’s chopper, Godsmack’s, Vince Neil’s and then some. Among the celebs for which they’ve built bikes, there is one built for the illusionist Criss Angel that is called “Criss Angel’s Mindfreak Chopper”. I also saw a few...
