    2nd motorcycle rocker

    I started assembling the seconde motorcycle rocker this weekend. This time I painted the edges of the side pieces prior to attaching them, saved a ton of time. Going for a police bike theme on this one. Need to find some badge stickers to put on and some small U.S. Flags yet, will clear coat over those with the polycrylic.

    OK, had time to finish up the details last night. I checked with both the police and sheriff's stations and local crafts stores, no police stickers. I did find some HD stickers at the craft store, so went with them. I put three coats of polycrylic over the stickers to keep them stuck, not that they needed any help.

    Looks real nice, Darren. Like Dewayne said, that's going to be very appreciated by some lucky kid(s).

    It's probably a bit late for this one, but in the future, you could try printing your own stickers. If you can find an image of the design you want (such as on Google Images), then you can print it on self-adhesive label material. You'd probably want to use a very light sprayed-on finish initially, to seal the ink without smearing it. Once you've got a coat or two on it, you could apply pretty much any finish you wanted.

    In a glance it looks like a "weekend project" but when I looked a little bit deep into the pics....that's a PROJECT and I assume that it took you some good garage time...

    Beautifully made Darren and I'm sure that the lucky kid will love it...

    Nice looking project.

    Are these your plans or did you find them elsewhere?
