I Just added the Passing Lights and Silverado Shield for the winter months when it is dark and cold. They will come off for the summer.







I picked up the keychain recently and thought it was fitting.





This is a custom airbrushed helmet, also by Darren at Liquid Illusions - I only wear it when I can handle the attention of a crazed clown on a purple fairy bike :D





That's all I've got. It's not much, but its mine. I think I'm finally ready for BOTM!

Hey Miescha... I think I've seen it in a post somewhere, but what does the fairy stand for or what is the meaning behind them?

by the way... very nice ride! the clown helmet is awesome too!

The fairies?

Yeah well - that first week in prison changes a man .......




:D



For the record, they are 'Woodland Nymphs' not fairies. But when I brought the bike home, one of my then 8 y/o twin sons came out to the drive and said 'cool purple fairy bike Dad' and it stuck.

It is also more blue than purple, but no one seems to notice that either.

I didn't choose the paint scheme or airbrushing, I got the bike that way. I initially planned to repaint it immediately, but from the day I got it I got stopped constantly by women of all ages wanting to take pictures with the bike (and sometimes me) so I let it go and eventually the paint and airbrushing grew on me.

I still get stopped constantly, when parking, at lights, on the road. Nearly as many men as women I might add.

So that's the story.....

Looks great. I was debating of tossing my bike in the mix but yours is eye catching. Anything planned in the future on mods?

Thanks for the kind words Jeff - but your volcanic orange bike is DEFINITELY a contender! In fact, I can't find updated pics with the new paint job outside of your gallery album (which I can't see on the ipad app) so I say you post up some pics and history and get this BOTM contest going!!

As for future mods, don't know what else I could do. Maybe some mirrors to match the side brake light, fancier grips or some fancy wheels. Mostly, I just like riding every minute I can while not working on the Strat.
