Just finished this project on a Honda Shadow for a Canadian air force pilot, he fly's the C-31's part of his job is repatriating dead soldiers.

Awkward customer, as he cant visualize anything or describe well what he wanted, which means a lot of sanding stuff off if he didn't like it.  Very frustrating to say the least.


Wanted it done in  Digital Desert Camo.

Close ups. after Cut and Polish.

Difficult for the camera to focus on very shiny clear coat they are all a little out of focus.

Tank Top. A lot of detail went in that.

Thanks man. Yes lost count of the hours, probably somewhere around 120 spread over 5 months. I didn't put it back together again the customer did. I don't need that kind of responsibility for bits falling off or not working properly, if they aren't put on right.

Very nice work Shadey! 


Not the colour scheme I would have chosen but it's not my bike and it means a lot to the owner.


It's certainly not something I could do.
