A number of months ago I was reading a RR on ADVRider and saw another Inmate had stopped by a local custom painter for some work. I had PMed Patrick46 and asked about getting some lettering done when we passed by. He said he'd love to and to let him know when we'd be by. We arranged for me to call him and he's come meet us at the local McDonald's and guide us to his shop. As we got near his place our shitty cell didn't have reception. I stopped by a pay phone and called him. I could hear him but he couldn't hear me. This went on over a few calls until he said "I'm guessing this is Tom. I'll be at McDonalds in a few minutes."

Three minutes later he was there. He guided us to his shop.


Patrick hand built this bike, and I mean everything. He showed us pictures of others he's done and you wouldn't believe the talent this man has. I wish I had taken some pictures of the rods and semis he has painted. Simply amazing work.


He laid out the lettering to get started.


Patrick starting on his magic.


The semi finished artwork. I didn't know what to expect, but we are thrilled with it. Thank you Patrick! It was great to meet you and a pleasure shooting the shit with you.


Here is the finished product. Patrick's web address is: www.artworks-unlimited.com. He is in Coos Bay, OR.
