Do your passengers find the position of their legs lead to an achy backside and fatigued muscles? Do they complain of not being able to brace against anything in the event of heavy braking? Heck, after riding for a couple of hours do your passengers get off the bike and just about crumple to the ground in agony? Well if they do any of the above then you better check out our review on Baron’s Adjustable Passenger Floorboards supplied by CruiserCustomizing.com!
A fantastic wallpaper featuring Larry Waimon’s Yamaha Road Star in front of a beautifully restored WWII Bomber.

It is well worth a read, especially if you have a windshield or are thinking about getting one.
It’s been a while since the last Custom Paint but you can thank Mark Tummillo for staying on my case to publish the pictures of his fantastic bike, “Warbird“. This is certainly one of the more original paint themes I have seen for a while and you will have to admit that Mark’s bike is one sharp ride indeed.
Found this fantastic Road Star today with some pretty amazing artwork ALL over it. This piece of machinery is owned by Dan Maser, and there is no doubt you can appreciate the work that has gone into this paint job. As you can see, Dan LOVES his Road Star and you can see he has spared no expense when it has come to this machine.
Everyone has had it, that heart stopping moment when you think you have stripped out a thread and you’re wondering to yourself, “What the hell do I do now?” For me it was the thread on the sub-frame for one of the four bolts that hold the rear fender in place, I stripped that puppy good. Because of this I was looking down the barrel of well over a $100 for a second hand sub-frame or who knows how much for a new one! But thankfully that was when I remembered hearing about helicoil kits. Read on, if you will, as it might just save you a LOT of money someday and no end of anguish.
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.

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“.
