Picked up three more records, I’ll get around to adding them to the list shortly (now done).
First is a 1957 press of Juanito Valderrama – Ole Flamenco
Second is Manitas de Plata – Flamenco the Spain of Manitas
Third is a WRC (approx 1971 press) of Stomu Yamash’ta – Percussion
Maybe I’ll stop painting the bike one day NOT!!
This version is Protec base black under SFX Blue Pearl in Protec Top Coat Clear. Next comes the flamenco dancer on the top of the tank and the word ‘Gitana’ on the sides – I’ve just got to decide what she’ll look like, which may well take me forever :P. You can also see the 4″ forward control extensions that make the ride sooooo much more comfy.
Either way, the airbrushing will be done with my trusty Iwata HP-C Plus with Iwata Medea Com-Art and Createx paints.
I’m not overly fussed if you like flamenco or not, I do and that’s all that matters to me!! This YouTube vid is Enrique Morente’s ‘Agnus Dei’ the bailador you hear around the 3:15 mark is Juan Ramirez, search for him on YouTube and be prepared for a serious treat.
Just started respraying the bike, it’s now a deep blue metallic with the beginnings of a Gitana/Flamenco dancer on the tank, with the Cross of Asturias (Cruz de la Victoria) on the rear guard. I knew it wouldn’t take long before I decided to change the old paint job 😛
Didn’t like it – starting again 2-1-11
Just gotta add the faces and a few tiny touchups and this is done.
