Default Re: New vs Old! Vintage or High Tech.

GREAT looking bikes CCC! Like the After pic much better MBMark. I saw a VW bug on ebay a while back that was done up as a surfers ride. It was in the stock white but had been made to look like it was rusted from being at the beach. Growing up around Daytona Beach and being a surfer, rusted cars were part of every day life. This thing was so well done you wouldnt know it was art work until you tried to poke a rust hole. A lot of the bobbers are acid washed and that gives a great effect, but the rust is real especially on fasteners. The effect on the VW was very real with no down side, would love to have a bike done that way.
