Now "that's" pretty cool!
Now comes the part when you have to be sooooooooooooo careful not too even put a scratch in that paint job! Ouch! Careful!

Well it's different! Hehe, I guess you'd need that T-shirt too! Mr Plod would have your card marked PDQ, best adhere to the speed limits...

Great paint job. Colors and scheme are hideous. I don’t suppose it qualifies for an insurance claim. Hopefully he and his family are happy.

Reminds me of before and after when people add tattoos all over their body. I'll always take the before personally. Hershall Walker some kind of basketball player or the like? I can't say I've ever heard of him.

He's got the money, why not.
Ever see some of the stuff Elvis drove?
Worth a fortune now.
He can always afford a regular paint bike, to go undercover.

Seems to commemorate events in his life. His wife pointed out her pic on the side. I wonder if it has a pic of his first wife on there too. LOL

No doubt Rick and crew have many hours of work in that paint job. But oh my. It is a bit over the top. Wonder if he is really plans on riding it. Probably just a show piece. I liked it better prior to the unveiling. :eek:4:

I thought maybe he was pulling our legs but maybe not.

I had a colleague once who had been gifted an autographed picture of Bob Lilly of the Dallas Cowboys. He asked me who it was. I told him to hand in his mancard.

HW has a garage full of Victory bikes. He doesn’t need the dealership — he’s got Rick Fairless’ shop in Dallas to work on them.

If you going go big.

The NFL is dead to me now but I was a big fan. I always liked Herschel Walker, wish he had gone into the NFL out of collage instead of the USFL. He could mow over a defense like Larry Csonka and out run the fastest DB on the field. He was pretty much done buy the time he got the NFL.

Wow the painter does some incredible work !

It’s close to Southwest Airlines’ headquarters and Herb Kelleher used to go there for lunch. Great place to get a .
