    Ran across these on sh.org just now. It was supposedly Jesse's busa. Paint by Mike Lavalee at www.killerpaint.com. Just thought some of you might like to see these pics. [​IMG]

    Lavalee is famous for this style of flames.

    Closer shot of flame detail. Awesome airbrush work! [​IMG]

    A shot of the chrome tank, triple cover, and the bad ass six shooter gas lid. I'm likin' that touch! [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Of course it had to have this on it somewhere, right? [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    More of Mike's airbrush handywork. Cool skull work. [​IMG]

    Lastly, the Stingray hide seat. The light spot in the middle is supposed to be cartilage. Bet that shid cost somebody big $$$! [​IMG]

    Nice paint. I'd like to take that bike on a high speed insect-smashing ride on a few hundred miles of swampy FL roads.

    That was my first thought, but the guy that posted the pics said it was cartilage from the Stingray. I dunno... Never dealt with a Stingray other than the old Corvette Stingrays. [​IMG]

    It's not a stocker either, Lee's performance did the motor. Lee said Jessie came and picked it up personally.

    Paint looks good, but the chrome tank throws everything off for me!

    I agree with you, that paint is awsome he should have continued it to the tank.  It looks mismatched. Maybe the tank was'nt done being painted.
