Randy Melton

This is the tank on the Shrimp Boat Captain, I got it off ebay, Randy painted it. I kind of sort of built the bike around it. At the time I had no idea who Randy was. I posted this picture up on the blog some months ago and low and behold Randy emailed me. He painted it when he was 19 back in 1978, he did 4 tanks for a bike shop called Bob's Cycle in Illinois. They were never used, just hung up on the wall on display. There is no story attached to the artwork, it was just what came into his head as he was working on it. Anyways, Randy is still painting and here are pics of some old stuff and some new. Rad!
