That frame is so beautifully crazy. You can’t even describe it.

Re: 2010 DFR 1024

I did the paint job in this order, I polished the rear (raw metal) then powder coated the whole frame in clear. A few hours later I sanded the clear with 600 grit and covered the rear polished area so I wouldn`t get color on it. I uncovered the rear when I was done with most of the color then I did the fade into the polish area. After all color was on I clear coated with paint over the whole frame. I left open areas like ended the stripes in weird places because I wanted to put a bunch of decals on like VH, 5150, Kramer guitars, Frankenstien, EVH, you get the idea. I also had the idea of a guitar pick shape number plate.
I think this frame is one of the first oned DFR made so it`s a prototype. I think he made more afterwards but not like this frame. I realy didn`t want to see it go but with no job and bills piling up this was my biggest and more expensive project.
It is a very cool concept, the frame itself and the color sceme. Paint and powder together! I still dream about doing a JAD frame in the "Unchained" guitar design hmm

It needs to be put together and needs to be on the road!  This is probably, in my eyes, the coolest bike in the museum!
