Spent the day at the James Dean/Ducktail run on Saturday.He was born in the Hoosier state and man do they throw a shindig in his home town.
Goodtimes,Good Friends as always.
Pics forth coming as I forgot my camera,but my good pal Blktopbandit loaned me one.As soon as I get the pics I will do a full post on the event.

Meet the Mule Skinner

mule skinner - a worker who drives mules
- someone who works with their hands; someone engaged in manual labor

This describes the owner,my friend Ratpan to a tee.He built this little sporty to ride as a daily driver while combatting commuter traffic.He turned me loose with two requirments on the paint......HOK Candy rootbeer somewhere on it and no mexican shit.......Well I had seen a panhead he used to race back in the day and the name was called Mule Skinner so it had to be.

Enjoy the pics

I am really a fan of thre 50's and 60's custom painters.
They did the coolest stuff with pretty much junk paint and grinding glass and making thier own mixes.Its far to easy now days compared to the days gone by.
Always open to doing some one off work.Just let me know you can contact me thru the email listed here.
