Richard Krall's Latest Creation
So, There's the guy who lives in a studio in the fair park area, who had this idea, who made this bike. Richard Krall is one of those painfully talented artists who has a knack for looking at something ordinary and doing amazing work with it. I've probably known Richard for 18 years, and during that time he's always been a great photographer, a furniture builder, a carpenter, metal smith, and now -- a custom bike builder. Recently, Richard and I connected to do some rides and he showed me his concept for this bike. It's even more amazing in person.
The other night I met with Richard at Fat Daddy's (on Garland Road and N Buckner) and it was amazing to see all of the Harley Davidson folks making conversation about this bike. Frankly, I'm just not surprised... because Richard is just a miserable person until he reaches perfection -- and he always gets there!
I'd explain more about the bike, but I think I'll let Richard do that here soon. Until he let's me ride it, I'll just admire his amazing work of art.
