Painting

by Alain Panneton
Autumn has just arrived. For some this means the end of summer and long motorcycle rides, putting away the bike and the beginning of a long waiting period that will lead to spring time. For others fall will be the perfect time to modify and embellish their ride. Painting your bike is very often done at this time of the year. You’ve thought about it all summer long. It is now time to take your bike apart and bring the tins to the painter of your choice to see your dreams come through. If you take the right route you will give more character to your bike. If you’re not prepared well in advance, that’s another story…

Before you decide on a body shop or painter who’s going to refinish your parts, you must ask yourself a few questions. The first one that comes to mind seems obvious: who should I choose? But how will you find the right painter if you don’t know what you want in the first place? Having your bike painted seems a fairly simple task but there are many elements to consider. Do you want to change the colour of your bike? And if so, do you want a solid colour, a metallic one, a candy with plenty of depth or a pearlescent finish? Or do you want lots of flakes? Do you want graphic designs with flashy colours, with pinstripes? Or do you prefer the look of airbrush work? Do you want drawings all over your parts ...

Let’s talk booty!

Yeah you heard me, booty! Oh sorry! Not the ones that shake on the dance floors all night though, we could talk about those for a good long while! No, the ones you sit on. Your booty! Yes, you’ve guessed it right, we’re talking about seats. Good ones, bad ones and what the differences are.

I have had many seats over the years and some were a real pain in the ass. So I have been using custom made seats for the last few years. Custom seats are designed with the user in mind and the materiel chosen will be tailored to your height and weight. Always establish first what is your budget because when you go “custom,” the skies the limit. Custom seat fabricators will work with you. Some of them have high-tech shops, like Halley-Wellet (1) and some work in modest installations like Stephane Jean (2) but still get phenomenal result. It’s all about passion and experience.

S t r e e t Bastard

By The Kid

I’ve been drawn to the world of airbrushing since 1990. A year after my debut I bought my first Harley- Davidson, a ’79 Shovel. I started airbrushing on motorcycles by painting my own bike then that of a friend’s. He gave me my first chance. In the ten years that followed I worked at mastering my craft. My company evolved rapidly.

Being an artist at heart, I decided to try another medium: tattooing. As I was already known in the art world, people quickly put their trust in me. I was known as the Kid. I put airbrushing aside but never really stop completely. Instead, I chose my airbrushing jobs very carefully as tattooing became more popular and kept me very busy. It also gave me access to a larger number of new customers. Today we can see that many artists have taken this journey off the beaten path to experience other avenues in their life.

How do you measure success? Some people may measure it by their social status, the achievement of their goals or the level of education they have attained. For others it may be the quality of the bike they ride, the miles of road they have traveled or the quality of the people that surround them. Certain may also measure their success by the beauty of the land they live on, the profitability of their businesses, the projects they have completed and even sometimes the things they have invented. If we put a little more thought into it, this list can go on and on. But how do you quantify someone who has achieved success in all of the aforementioned topics? An overachiever, or is there such a thing? If you look up the definition of “overachiever” in the dictionary it will say “a person who achieves superior results through excessive effort”. Well then I believe there are such persons. How do I know this? Well I witnessed it first hand on the day I met Ed“Edjo” Leslie.
