What a wonderful weekend at Handbuilt Motorcycle Show put on by the good folks at Revival Cycles. I was so impressed with the show and had an absolute blast! Also very honored to have had three of my seats included in the show.

I love working with Yard Ratz Fab. They always hit me up with an 11th hour deadline for a crazy ass build. This one is for a Harley Ironhead custom chopper that had to get down to Daytona Bike Week on time.

This custom King & Queen was done in soft black leather with diamond topstitching and accented with buttons running down the center front and forming a smaller diamond at the seat center.

Looking forward to seeing this bike out and about!
