The Big Sleep......

Indian Larry's resting place. What better vessel for Larry than a Panhead jug, with the dishpan fully engraved by CJ Allan. This shot comes from inside the IL shop, during the Indian Larry Memorial, held in Sept. of 2004.
Close-up detail shot of the top and side of the dishpan with CJ's engraving. I'm sorry, but I can't remember who actually constructed the urn. Could someone tell me, please?
David Mann's urn. Designed and painted by Krylon John in "David Mann Red" - the paint coming from the exact same can of paint John used to repaint Mann's bike in 1997. The urn itself was constructed by Kenny Morris - Hot Rods & Hogs, Stanton, CA.
David Mann back home at he and Jacquie Mann's house in KC, MO.
Randy Smith's most fitting final resting place - a set of cherry Harley factory WR racing tanks. I forgot I had these photos. I found them on an old disc, when I was going through stuff after my computer crash. I have no idea who sent these to me, or when, I'm sorry. I have no info on who constructed or painted it.
As you can see, Randy rests in the L/H side of the tanks, and Lisha, his wife, will eventually join him on the R/H side.

Man, you feeling your mortality today? Well, don't be in too big a hurry to run off!

I've been digging around in barns up north. Got a few tanks I want to show you.

I dunno, Adam......maybe.

I haven't had the motivation to put up anything interesting lately.....

Sure, stop by, and we'll go over whatever you have going on, and see if we can work it into your build. Gimmie a call.
