My friend Bob Spina sprayed the fuel tank . . . I saw some pics on his board when I was in Vegas last week. Remember my "Dragon Spray'r" post a few back . . . That CCI Kit rocks. One of the better ideas that came out of Custom Chrome. This motorcycle is Bad Ass ! (see Church of Choppers post by Nelson Kanno for more insight on this)
We found Cecil's in Vegas. No hidden parts stash (long since picked by the locals) - but, Cecil himself was one cool dude. He was in Sturgis camping in City Park the same year Big Noot was there . . . when Dick Allen set the picnic tables on fire . . . and the drags on the highway out front . . . . and the firemen came and hosed down the crowd to gain control . . . and Pete Hill's drag bike went down mainstreet . . . and all those good old stories - Cecil was there. Awesome.
I'm ready for a vacation. After spending 48+ hours with Bob Spina in Vegas, and watchin' him spray flake, airbrush, pinstripe, sand, buff, clear, fix other people's fuck-ups . . . it's clear to see why Spina is the best. Bob was buffin' out flaws I couldn't even see . . . and after 50+ years - he still don't need no sign on his building. So, if you gotta have the coolest paint . . . fly, drive, limo, cab, whatever - build a fucking wood box(I did) - Get with me - I'll get ya hooked up - It's kinda an exclusive deal if you get me? You dig?
Vegas baby !
