In the early,......real early days, Jesse actually did a lot of his own painting, then used Damon's exclusively, and they are responsible for many of the paint jobs on WCC bikes that many people recognize.

The unbelievable air brush atrist, Mike LaValle, "true fire" pioneer, also painted for Jesse, and The Death Dealer CFL, and Tylow's El Diablo softtail, along with some 4 wheel WCC vehicles were some of the first LaValle "true fire" jobs to get national exposure. I'll post up this stuff soon.

But as WCC continues to grow every year, they began to do their paint work in house, with the addition of the great custom painter, Pete "Hotdog" Finland, to the staff.

This is his WCC.

Hey Frank, great thread! WCC puts out some awesome looking bikes that look like they were meant to be riden.

I think that second copper bike was built on Monster Garage by the "OG's" of the motorcycle world, including Bandit of Easyrider fame. I like the original copper one better myself, and I think that's the first Dominator frame.

You may be right, maybe it was a "blue" bike that the students built.

That's what makes this thread fun.

I love Hot Dog's paint work. That was one of my favorite parts of History of the Chopper when he was laying down flames. The 1st copper bike is very cool. Any more pics of it?

Here you go, this is a 6 up Dominator frame and an all riveted gas tank, with no welding, soldering, or brazing.

damn thats alot of bikes, that arent so "cookie cutter" if you know what i mean. One cool thing whether you admire the guys work or not, (I do) at least you can beat the shit out of em and ride the piss out of em. (oh and thanks for the frame call, i never could remember what platform he built that bike on.

Speaking of the Dominator, this Coors Dominator took a page from the rusty CFL, Chongo Blanco, and looked just as tough, if not tougher.
