Anti-Fascist Sportster

 Following a re-spray the 'white bike' is no more. It's now officially the much more sober 'grey and black without the dodgy 80's graphics bike'.

I did contemplate taking it all the way back to the bare metal and just having some coats of lacquer to keep out the rust. Great for a truly shabby chic look but I tried doing it on just  a fender and it seemed much too much like hard work in comparison to a re-spray.

Then I came upon this image with the legendary inscription from Woody Guthrie's guitar on the tank  and wondered if I made the right decision .
