Thanks, I owe the idea and alot of the work to my good friend Big J, who came up with the flake idea. I was going to do black with silver flake, with some pinstriping designs and maybe some lace or scales and stuff. But J reminded me that we're beginners and should keep it simple, so we went with just black base, flake, and clear, still have lots of clear left to do before it's done. After adding the big holographic flake it looked good, but we decided to also add some small flake, some "ghost blue", I think it matches well. The pics are from my iphone, which has a pretty good camera, but it doesn't pick up all the brilliance of the colors, not even half, you should see this stuff in the sun. Also it turns dark purple at night, looks rad under the light in my driveway. Can't wait to see it under the neon lights at night at my friend's tattoo shop.
Ever since I got this FXR 7 years ago, my first harley, I've been wanting to black it out and add some high T bars. Then that style became way too popular, don't get me wrong I love the look, well the bars are pretty goofy looking but they function awesome. So I decided to do my own thing and flake it out. I'm still running the 14" T bars because I paid good money for them several years ago, and I gotta use what I got. But I do believe a set of tall Zombie bars would be awesome on my bike. Bad back so comfort and function are #1, and tall bars and mids are the shit. Funny thing about the bars I'm running, got them from the dude that makes em for that show, before the show came out. He let me sit on his dyna and feel em out, I was hooked. Then he proceeded to show me how to split lanes on one wheel haha, dudes a nut. Part of me doesn't want to run them because soooo many motherfuckers are running them right now, but the other part of me is like, fuck that, I had em first.
