    Custom "Mayan" painted Fox 36!

    The frame was Christmas gift by my girly friend and I reused/ replaced the rest. She also painted my fork mayan style since I have a bit of mayan heritage, being from Central Guatemala and such... check it out and she wants the hear your comments.

    Wow that is awesome, did she paint the crowns white? How long did that take? I love seeing custom stuff like that

    Awsome Riot and wicked paint job.

    I hope there's clearcoat on it, it would suck to have it scratched easy.

    Awesome stuff, love the custom stuff. I think she needs to do a little more on the bike to pull it all together.

    Tell her to buy a tattoo machine and git bizzy! A lot more people than you think dig that stuff! And I think you should also post a pic of the artist... ;)

    she really appreciates all your comments. I dunno about a tattoo machine... i got her an airbrush kit and canon digi cam so far. She's truly an artist so we'll see. maybe tattoos are next

    If she can nail airbrushing, a tat machine is just a different brush. There's more in the sanitation and health aspect than there is in actually slingin ink tho...kinda kills the fun I think...
