Vintage Scans

4-82-CustomBike-01

I picked up a bunch of old chopper magazines at the show yesterday. Lots of great old stuff in there, so from time to time I’ll be posting some scans of cool bikes or articles. The following pics are from the 1982 April issue of Custom Bike. I absolutely love the paint on this bike: black and silver pearl base sprayed with Brandywine acrylic lacquer, red gold and silver leaf with candy red pinstriping – diggin’ it big time. Looking through all these old mags I have to wonder where all these bikes ended up, you’ve got to imagine they have quite a story attached with them by now.
