I am

I live at 1 Frozen place in, Minnesota, United States
My real name is Mark. For many years now my wife has called me Mr. Motorcycle. When I started my Blog I was looking for a catchy blog name, so I went with it. I'm happily married and I'm also a father of 6 children. I have two human offspring, one dog, two cats and one custom Harley. I believe that makes 6 children. When I'm not doing my real full time job, or going for a ride, I like to do art, custom paint jobs, and of course BLOG. If you would like to contact me, my e-mail address is phonetically spelled for avoiding spammers. (I actually do use the number 1 in the beginning.) 1mrmotorcycleATgmailDOTcom

The photo above is my ride :
"Kenny" started life as a stock '97, 883 Sportster. It's been a work in progress since the day I bought it many years ago. Its mostly custom with a built, "slightly juiced up" 1200 motor.
The Metal Fabrication, bodywork and custom paint was done by me.

How the Hell did I come up with a name like Kenny for my bike you ask?...... Most people who name their rides, go with chick names. I of course had to be different. I think bikes look tough, cool and masculine; not feminine. Plus, my father "Ken" has helped make me who I am today. Therefore with a little twist on the name, my bike was named "Kenny".

Gettin ready to do some air brushing

For those of you who have checked out my paint blog, I'm sure you've seen these pictures; but for those who have not, this is a tank I painted. This is what a flame job lay out looks like in the masked off stage as it gets ready for some airbrushed color.



Remember the Titan Sidewinder frame I posted a while back? More of that bike to come soon. Hopefully will have another post of some of that work in a couple of weeks.

I don't think that I'd have the patience to do all that.
You are truly an artist.

Twitch said...

I agree with D-Day. I've seen people this and there's no way I would have the patience (or skill?) to do that. And whilst I think there are way to many bikes with flames, I do respect the craftsmanship that goes into it.

Mr. Motorcycle said...

Thanks Dean and Twitch! The compliment is much appreciated.

It's not so much patience as it is very relaxing. I'm in the shop listening to tunes, drinking beer, and doing what I love. Best part is I get to see something really cool hapen before my eyes during each step, and knowing I did it makes it even better. Then to top it off, people pay for it. What's not to love?

Where the hell is your paint blog? Very cool, I have been thinking about breaking out my airbrush again. I want to paint something on the glide.

Mr. M... I know we're both very happily married, but... I wish you were my hubby so I could tell you to paint my bike for me... cause I said so! lol!

Great job! I'm really wanting to do something with my Glide, just trying to get the funds free to do it. arrgh.

Mr. Motorcycle said...

Baron, Thank you!

Lady R.,
I'm flattered! BTW, When and if you are ever ready to take that big leap and do the paintwork, you could have all of your tins shipped round trip usually for less than $200.00, with insurance on USPS shipping. That's not much in the scheme of things. If you were ever interested, I'd love to paint your tins for you. We can always negotiate a good buddy discount. Shoot me an e-mail if you are interested in figuring out a price.
