Dang turbo, you got a steal in those rear sets! I've been keeping my eyes open for some off of just about anything (anything will fit with a big enough hammer ) but I'll wait for a good deal. Played with the GW front end anymore?

Here's the progress on the seat pan:

What used to be a road sign





Made these to form the radii over. 1" and 9/16" radii.






Looks terrible in the pictures, but it flows pretty well. I really can't fix the waviness until I weld on the top piece. After I radius the top piece, it should have some really nice lines.

Hey, it looks good already. A neat subtle touch is the radius where it meets the seat at the front. Veeery nice work.

Glad you like 'em, they're adjustable about six ways to Tuesday. And speaking of Gold Wing forks on a 750, in Spring/Summer Moto Retro there's an article about the CB750 F based Super Bike and they ran "modified Gold Wing forks: thicker walls meant less flex." Great minds, etc...

I'd sell bodyparts to get two of them for $500. They used to be a dime a dozen around here, then everyone figured out how fucking cool they could be a few years back.

I'd be willing to bet that Paul had/has no idea where the image originated and probably doesn't even have any say in the designs. That being said the designer that poached the image is a douchebag.

I noticed that shirt isn't available on his website. I also noticed there isn't a single bike on the site either.

What a douche.

funny part is that he's always been so proud of being so "new school" and then he claims a badass old school bike as his own design?

Fungus, that project is comin' along great - including the seat design. I've always hated the "box" looking seat as like you said, doesn't match the lines of the tank. The way I see it, the top of the seat should be below the top lines of the tank so the rear doesn't look bulky and out of place.

Nothing beats the Norton Manx styled seat! It goes good on anything. I've always hated the seat on my CB, but it came that way and haven't gotten around to making/buying a new replacement.

Just got back home after spending a couple days in Florida and Ala-fuckin-bama to visit some family.

Stopped at the Barber's Motorsports Museum and took some pics. There is a lot of 'em.



Matchless




1960 Norton Manx




Velocette Venom




Triton







For the few who have recently aquired Honda CB 750s (or 400s)




Nothing cooler than Royal Enfields, and the museum had several on display: 1963 Continental GT, a 1967 750 (Indian badged)
and THIS:




HD, Indian, and Yale boardtrackers. There was even a Flying Merkel!




One of the 5 Vincents on display (including a Black Knight- complete with fairing): 1955 Black Shadow




There was a whole floor of 1900s up to 1960s bikes. One of the many examples:




I got a ton more and I'll post 'em if you want. Enjoy.

The best part is that the museum overlooks the Barber racetrack. They had the road race guys goin' that day.


















Take lotion and some tissues.

He should use his own work to be sure but, I sort of feel like it is more the photgrapher who is being wronged if anyone. It's a great bike but the work that makes it so doesn't really come across in the shirt. the bike is about all the finish and detail and some subtle proprotion, the shirt is alot more about the spoked weel and point of perspective in my opinion. A similar shot of a hundred other bikes of that era from that angle and modified as that pic was would look basically the same. It's more the image (which likely has a release to go with it) that is being stolen more so than level craftmanship in the bike.

It is pretty sad though that he needs to borrow another guy's bike to make a cool shirt. He should know better because he is probably doing it because he does not have access to his old work.

But he IS a designer. He's advertising his own company with a motorcycle he didn't design. That doesn't say too much about him or his business.

It'd be totally different if he was just wearing the shirt around his shop. If he was caught in a picture wearing a shirt that had one of Chip Foose's cars, it'd just be his shirt he was wearing around. No problem. However, if he's selling the shirt... it's automatically implied that it's an original design by him. Due to all the legal BS, the builder of the bike may have not bought the rights to the images from the photographer, which that would allow the photographer to do whatever he pleased with the pictures. Which I think is totally wrong.

Whatever the case, the dude looks and acts like a complete dumbass. At least he's more chill than pops though.

I would guess the shirt was from the boutique his wife runs and was likely designed prior to him trying his hand at designing bikes again. Pauly Designs was not doing motorcycles when it first started up. It was over year before they gave up the other shit and decided to go back to what he was best known for and do bikes again. The two bikes he built this season are the 1st bikes he has built since leaving OCC.

It is definitely a snafu regardless though and it looks pretty sad.

I watched an episode last night of the new season and it is a train wreck these days. Pauly Sr has gone right of the deep end and is acting like an incredible ass. He has prostrate cancer so you would think he would want to patch his family shit up instead of suing Jr and doing all kinds of nasty behinds the scenes shit trying to bankrupt Jr's company. Pauly Jr definitely lost some of his arrogance with all of this shit happening although you still see glimmers of it in him. Mikey is no where near as funny since doing rehab and AA. He is kinda sad to watch now.

The only reason he is doing bikes now, is because of TV.
Specifically, Discovery/TLC. The weasels at TLC will happily
help the whole family screw themselves into the ground,
and film the whole thing.

Steep interest on Bad Karma.
