    Paint Update

    Happy holidays to everyone, hope you all have a great holiday season. Sorry for so little updates, but with the garage being destroyed by water and the holiday, things have slowed a bit. I did hear from Bill Hamilton at Hamilton Classics and he confirmed that the tins will go into the paint booth this weekend. Very excited to see how it turns out and as soon as I get any updates or pictures I will be sure to share them. In the meantime, thanks for following and Merry Christmas to everyone.

    Sincerely,
    Shane

    Happy New Years!

    Happy New Years to everyone, I have great news, Josh is back in his garage after the flood and the bike is on the stand. The tins are finishing paint this following week so hopefully in early 2013 we will have many new updates for everyone. Thanks everyone for following along, sorry it has been a little slow going as of late, but that will change.

    Sincerely,
    Shane

    Happy Thread

    I was cruising the internet last week for pictures of powdercoated exhaust systems, and ran into a LARGE site with literally hundreds of "postage stamp" type pix of all sorts of powdercoat jobs, and. . .wait for it. . .ran into pictures of YOUR recently powdercoated mufflers. These things look fantastic now, especially compared to the to the "before" pictures of them -- lots of rust in evidence. Pictures CAN sometimes lie, but I'm guessing that these don't disappoint when viewed in-person.

    This baby has the possibility of coming together very quickly now, and that's very exciting to your many fans. Believe it or not, and even with snow on the ground - spring is not far away. . .

    Yes, we are going on 3 years now for the restoration, it is almost coming to a conclusion. I called today and next month I can register for the ABATE Class here in town, my brother took it a few years back and really recommends it. I will take the class at first sign of spring. Thanks for following along, very excited and more importantly, furtunate to be able to pull this off.

    Thanks,
    Shane

    White Fender

    And my own little personal touch, completely white front fender to match the white race stripe. I have to admit, this 1948 Porsche color is amazing on a BMW, must be a German and Air Cooled thing!

    Headlight Bucket

    Josh received all of the painted tins and today started with the headlight bucket, I could not be happier with the look. Have a great weekend everyone. The same company that restored my original gauges for my Porsche did the bike.

    Thanks,
    Shane
