Spike Customs now taking credit card payments

My dear customers,

I have set up a vendor account and can accept all major credit card plans directly.  No more hassling with the slimey paypal payment system, or the complicated google checkout system.
In person, i swipe ypur card normally.  For long distance orders, just call in and i can take your payment and order right over the phone.
I know i know, its so much hassle to actually pick up the phone, dial the number and *talk* to someone, but i'm sure you can manage.  And a little human contact away from the computer couldnt hurt.  Ordering custom work and getting something this cool shouldn't happen by the click of the mouse, anyway.  Afterall, youfr not buying a machine made piece, your buying a handcrafted piece... so talk to the owner of the hands.

Happy shopping,


Technical Difficulties / Server Crash Last Week

Sorry everyone about the site being down last week (5-24 to 5-29).  My server crashed and it took that long to get it back up.  If you tried to contact me during that time, you will need to re-send your message, since my email was down too and i could not receive any messages.

But not to worry, as the site is back up and running for everyone to look at and love.




“Queen of Spades” Pinup Girl Bobber / Chopper Solo Seat

“Queen of Spades” Bobber Seat

Hey Guys,

Here's a new bobber seat that i made just for the hellavit. It's a new pinup design that I've worked out. I was planning on making one type of pinup seat for each suit of cards, this one is the Queen of Spades. Not sure if i'll do clubs or diamonds next.

This bobber / chopper seat has a hand tooled leather top, with filigree in the background. The filigree is actually dyed a dark gunmetal shade metallic color ( I still don't think anyone has figured out how to make a metallic dye but me ;) ). The edges are laced, and the edges have ostrich panels sewn in as well. Like all my seats it has memory foam padding, with my new and improved seatpans that also accept all the standard hardware (nose brackets and springs) that are on the market, making it much easier to install on your custom build. An upholstered seat bottom finish off the look for one sweet looking seat.

I love it. Pinup girls are definitely on my favorites list of things i enjoy making.

This seat is not a “one-off” and special order for a customer, it will be available for purchase in my online store - Online Store -->"Queen of Spades" B

And without further ado, i give you more pictures!
