Retro style fender ornaments

Most of you guys over 50 know what Im talking about...mostly though, the Indian cycles indian head on the front fender, or better yet, the hood ornaments on cars (Pontiac, Olds, etc)...especially those which lit up...

For thos guys who have sorta dressed their bike out with bags, windshield, etc....this is fer you !...and picture whitewalls on and fishtail tips to boot !...

I think Merc may be very interested in this....

Those are cool.. I need a Screeching Wraith, or something ghastly like that... depending on the direction I go for paint. Or the other direction would be an Indian headdress with scull (that would fit the woody concept bike better).

I really need about 4 more vulcans... grrrr

I'd love to get a wolf's head with blue illuminated eyes....depending on how bad this winter is, I may take a crack at making these....the molds anyway...the actual castings would need to be farmed out...
Remember the Pontiac Indian head with the yellow glowing eyes ?...that used to freak the heck outta me when I was a kid....dad had a 54....

Interesting wolfie, The Indian motorcycles do have their fender ornament, I think for my conversion I am going to just do rattle can black and that's it, kind of a simplicity look.

Off to yard work
