    Breakdown Beatnik is DONE!!

    This bike was built to be a "rolling billboard" of sorts, a scream for attention, a way to let others see what B4C is all about...

    Rolling art!! Whether it be bikes, cars, or motorcycles, I love'm all and will stripe anything that sits still long enough!!!

    So without further fanfare...

    I wanted to pay homage to the greats of the custom/lowbrow/beatnik age...Roth, Barris, VonDutch, Winfield...so many greats that I admire and mimic in my designs.

    More details...

    Great paint, striping, and design elements!
    I love the shifter brake lever on the steering wheel too.
    Nice work!

    Some cool builds here Brett, if we end up moving back to to the Carolinas I know where to go for pinstripe work.
    Well done.

    Stripe-a-licious! The mags and frame geometrical shapes work well together. Like the acid green color!
