The shredder

This customer requested that I try my hand at painting on the logos rather than the standard decals. I have not done this sort of thing for a good many years....I guess if it does not make the cut it can easily be removed ! When I first started building I used to always hand paint on the name....I had no decals nor money to have them made.

The hand-painted lettering looks raw and cool. I like.

Hey Paul,
Check out the web site "Apartment Therapy". One of your bikes is featured prominently in a tour of this fellow's San Francisco apartment. Look for "Bill's Story filled San Francisco Apartment". Your bike as art. Ironic!

Hi Paul. I like the hand painted lettering.Ive seen alot of older bike bikes here in Australia finished that way.My grand father was a frame builder in the late 1940s, and all of his bicycles logos were hand writen and pin striped.
