Gold Choppa!

Linkert carb about to get some luv from Mark @ Blackgold in Daytona.

Judson'd Beetle

New "Old" look for the Judson'd Beetle. These authentic Kelsey-Hayes wheels came off a '57 Tbird. The wheels were professionally restored then powdercoated red. Custom stainless hub caps with burnished finish. Firestone rubber fills out the wheel wells nicely and give the bug a prostreet kinda vibe

Anthony at HiSpeedCustoms in Tucson stepped up and gave my '64fl a fresh look- tore the bike down for me. Repainted the frame fenders tanks gloss black. Jugs were redone with a portion of the fins in flat black. Wiring was tweaked, subtle refinements were performed on the fuel lines. 4speed tranny was reconditioned by George (Spartan Frameworks) Counes!

Anthony & George collaborated on the design of the exhaust system. Fitment of this arrangement was quite a challenge. I wanted rid of the hodge-podge assembly of 15 or so pieces that were clamped and sleaved together that rattled, required constant tightening and adjustements... this new exhaust feature 2 solid continuous pieces; a right side & a left side. Creating this set up proved to be a real test. Fabricating, bends, handforming the high quality stainless required serious skills.

Just placed my order!

Are these killer? or what! This is the 2nd set of "Wide 5" alloy wheels fabbed up then powdercoated by talented dude named Mark in Denver. He was kind enough to accept a request from me to build five more- in a different color scheme. I intend to enjoy them on my haul'r; going to roll with these custom wheels in place of a Fuch set that's on the VW single cab now

The 1st set (tested and proven under autocross racing conditions) is very similar to this set; polished finish rather powdercoated. Those wheels are on a 356 outlaw creation that Mark collaborated on.

nose "redeux" on double door panel

the nose was "cracked" during delivery to previous owner- his transport driver failed to tied the bus down properly inside the transport trailer...

i decided to have it fixed ...

upon removal of paint/filler material an "oilcan" situation revealed itself. decided to have metal "re-worked"

primer has been applied/wetsanded (allowing proper curing between applications) a couple times now to build up a "base"...

"anthracite" color will be re-sprayed in coming days ~
