and the last piece finished...

A tryout promotional tshirt,
all handpainted and striped.
the striping was done with the Buegler Tool, not quite traditional, but it was only a tryout, and the brush didn't seem to work out quite good.

Keep your eyes on this blog, the shirt might become available in a limited edition.
We'll keep ya updated if it happens.

VonZelli's chopper bicycle

We did a metalflake paintjob on this one, some candyapple red and alot of silver pinstriping.

Things getting quite busy at the moment,

Thanx Fred for sending the pics.
Really enjoyed doing this handpainted lettering on Fred's latest bike, the Harper.
Meanwhile, Fred & the bike have made a european tour, to germany, sweden and France...
So if you wanna see and read more about this bike, check all major motorcycle magazines.

Wanna see the details of the paintjob I did, check one of the previous posts, think the post title is Harper...the newest Krugger Creation, posted in March.
Later!




Blaster's Panhead

Earlier this week, Blaster (yes The Pinstriper) from Italy
send me some pics of his newly painted chopper.
The previous version had a dark blue (or was it purple) with lotsa
goldleaf and striping.
This second paintjob is by the hand of the Master himself from flakes to stripes...
Guess sixties & seventies paintjobs are magic if you're into it.
I for one am wild about them.
This is one very nice paintjob with Blaster written all over it. KOOL!!!

Can't exactly find the specs on the rest of the bike, hope I do soon though.
But one thing's for sure...It doesn't get any better than this!!!
