I got screwed on this paint job. I did it for a Long Island chopper shop that turned out to not be a very good customer. I was supposed to get a Shovelhead engine in exchange for the paint. I'm still waiting.......
I got all kinds of stories.

  • The engine is still in my bike.
  • The engine is at my house.
  • The engine is in a bike at my house.
  • My garage is too full of parts to get to it right now.
  • I need to put some parts in it before you pick it up.
  • I want to make sure it's OK before you pick it up.
  • My shop is too busy, I can't do it right now.
  • My shop is too slow, I need to make money right now.
  • I just moved my shop, I can't get to it right now.
  • I crashed on a customer's bike, I can't do anything right now.
  • Hey, I need a few more bikes painted too (luckily, I didn't fall for that one)....

It's been over 20 years and still no engine. I found out they went belly up quite a few years back. No big surprise there.
