Default Lost a friend today....

I lost a good friend this morning,Roy Mason, Roy painted at the custom shop I use to work at that his son owned. He was a old school sign painter that started painting motorcycles,he never rode em but loved em, he painted and striped for Cycle Fab, for many years, did some work for Shadly bros also.. The man was a legend in his own time, I would watch him pin strip a straight line for miles, he stripedy sport bike in one afternoon the next day I took home two trophies for best sport bike and best striping!! I miss the man already!! May you rest in peace now great friend, you will be forever in my memories..

Just hope there's enough coffee in heaven for you.....

I've very sorry to hear about your loss.

Man, I've watched some of those old guys paint, and it's just "no way!...impossible!...freakin' magic!"

I would love to be able to do anything like that.

That picture says a lot...really nice work.

RIP, Roy...hope I can share a coffee with you someday.

There is something to say about a person who did something that he truly enjoyed and that gave great joy to others.

Some suck the air we breath and give nothing back... Lord let me be what you purposed me to be just like this fellow.

Thanks for sharing!
