We have a new Custom Paint Road Star for you today. Now normally custom paint jobs tend to be quite extravagant but Larry Waimon’s bike bucks that trend. Dubbed, “Rolling Tribute” Larry’s bike pays homageto the WWII Bomber Pilots that flew those oh so perilous skies during the great air battles of the time. As an added bonus we have also created a wallpaper for your computer for you to download! So why don’t you go and have a look at Larry Waimon’s “Rolling Tribute“.

The Story of the BOMBER BIKE
The genesis of the Bomber Bike was fostered by World War II bomber nose art, the type immortalized by the celebrated artist, ALBERTO VARGAS. Vargas Pin-Up art adorned the fuselage of the era Bombers, reminding the brave crews what and whom they were fighting for
GIs back from the war, were in many ways, crafting the first true customs; stripping bikes to the bare minimum, they would gain speed and individuality. Some went as far as taking the crude bomber nose art and recreating it on their tanks thus gaining an aggressive, well-ridden persona
The Magic Jeannie is dedicated to the brave crews who flew in the MIGHTY EIGHTH Air Force and suffered staggering losses. Their selfless acts of bravery & sacrifice permits subsequent generations of Americans to realize the very hopes and dreams that were denied those of, (whats been called), the Greatest Generation!
With this tribute goes my profound gratitude to ALL who served and continue to do so.
