This Project was a few months in the making, but now that its all together and zooming around the streets of Boston, I figured I would share some of the story behind it.
My friend and club-mate Woody approached me about doing some sort of hardcore theme design on his latest Lambretta chopper project. I usually pride myself with doing as much as possible on these scooter projects by hand, but when Woody started to describe what he had in mind, I realized that a wrap was definitely the way to go. So later on that week, I left Woody's house with an armload of his precious vinyl and got down to scanning a bunch of album and 7" artwork. Between what I scanned and what other images I could come up with from some Google searches, I tried to piece together a coherent design and overall theme for the bike.
The Front Legsheild has a modified version of the album art of the famous (well at least around here...) 1982 compilation record "This is Boston not LA". For those of you unfamiliar with this gem, see this Wikipedia entry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/This_Is_Boston%2C_Not_L.A.
The Left Side was dedicated to some of Boston's more well known hardcore bands. Olde Tyme Hardcore champs like Slapshot, SSD, The Freeze, and Gang Green. If you look to the right of the Slapshot guy you can see a juvenile Woody stage-diving from the cover of Youth of Today's "Break Down the Walls".
The Right Side features some of the best know hardcore bands from outside of Boston. This was a fun project to work on, and it's been great to see the reactions that it has been getting in person and online.
