Mr. Motorcycle

I am

My photo
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".

Back together

The Titan Sidewinder that I custom painted has been put back together. I hope to see it in person soon. Yeah, someone else owns it, just like most things I paint, but a little piece of it feels like it is mine.

The paint jobs always take on a different feel when the bike is put back together.

I'm diggin this one.

So tell me, when are you doing a guest appearance on a reality TV show about bikes?

Road Captain said...

Looks great!!!

Lady R (Di) said...

Beautiful job! You can be very proud of yourself. Will you send me your autograph now, before you get all famous and busy? I can brag... "I knew Mr. M when he was just painting out of his garage!"

Finding another project will take care of that empty nest feeling your having.

Congratulations again on a job well done! It's very cool.

Dean "D-Day" said...

Beautiful job Mr. M.
Wish I had talent like that.

Mr. Motorcycle said...

Willy D, Road Captain, Lady R., and Dean "D-Day", you are all too kind. Thanks for the compliments. Fact is it is a side gig and nothing more. The part about getting paid to do a hobby makes it sweeter. I'm glad it's something I love to do again. When I used to do it for a living, I was always under major time constraints for volume, etc. and quality over volume always kinda took a back seat. I really hated that part. It took all of the joy out of painting.

Dean "D-Day" said...

Yeah, I had a good friend who was an auto mechanic and a hell of a great bike mechanic on the side. He got a pretty sweet offer to go work on bikes at a shop but turned it down. He explained to me that he actually enjoyed working on bikes in his spare time. He was afraid that if he did it as a full-time job that it would take the enjoyment out of it.

Webster World said...

You did a good job. Looks great. I work on a bike here and there. I too would not want to do it full time for that joy would be gone.

Kathleen Jennette said...

Its nice to have a craft you enjoy and earn money on. Beautiful work!

Mr. Motorcycle said...

Webster World and KT Did. Thank you both very much. I appreciate the compliment! And Dean, I can totally see that.

According to the Mr Motorcycle formula, I should call my bike 'Buford'

or not

Mr. Motorcycle said...

No Name,

Regarding how I named my bike and what you say is my formula.... That's really F'n funny. Buford, does not make a good bike name! Oh well, Can't win em all. Go with the Chick version. "Buffy", now that is a good bike name.
