I didn't have those when I got the other graphics from you, 'member?

I have them now, as well as the "legal" #1's you made.

Thanks Tim for getting those cut up for this bike, they look great with the bike!

Chris, what did your dad say about the "Sam's Motorcycles" decals? Tom just said "make something for him"... so it was a shot in the dark.

I guess there wasn't room for the "www.texascustomdecals.com" ?

The bike looks great... good luck this season!
the sams decal is good, he liked it seeing as how hes never had any sort of stickers made up for my bikes. can you do any color?

We should get all of the bikes up at TWS (Texas World Speedway) with fresh paint and take a picture together...

and then commence a ground de-magnetizing on all the bikes...

John Haner told me, take each piece of bodywork and scratch it in an inconspicuous place with a knife or something sharp. It works!

No problem! Doesn't mean because this paint job was free that the next one will be...

You know how to work a piece of sand paper?

This is the hardest thing to do, take a knife to new paint.
But, I think that now I beleive the hype. I'd rather shove a screwdriver thru the upper than lay it over and natturally de-magnatize it.
