My homeboy, brother and best friend, Darren "Csik" Wolfe is the mastermind and builder behind this crazy 73 CB550 chopper.  I have had the privilege of being able to help out on a few things and see this bike in various stages over the last year and a half and i must say this man poured his heart out, rather then his wallet into this build.  Anyone can call up all the right people, hand them a few dollars and have their dream bike built through various avenues but Darren took matters into his own hands.  A bodyman by trade, and master painter at heart, he cut,  ground, shaped, sprayed and wrenched on what started out as a hacked apart bone stock Honda cb550.  He has more hours into the beautifully shaped headlight mount than most guys have in assembly alone.  Csik is a freak about details.  Hours mean nothing to him as anything less than perfect is a trajedy.  Obviously the most striking detail of this sickle is the paint.  From the start it had to be pink, sparkly and loud.  Just to freak out all the bad boys bikers.  Heavy flake laid down on the molded frame and then complemented with verigated gold leaf and hot pink stripes by none other then darren's partner in crime Shaun "Dekay" Decae.  Csik and Dekay are the masterminds behind Konstrast studios, based out of Saskatoon.  Custom paint, pinstriping, airbrushing, gold leaf they can do it all and are about as good as it gets in the business.  I think the work they put into this canvas here speaks for it self.
