Anyone know this signature

My 1500 has some hand painted effects that need touched up. I believe this is signature. Does anyone know who this may be?

Maybe either Mountainman Art or TJ and the Boss.
If you go to any of the GWRRA rallies there is always
people there striping bikes. I had mine done by Mountainman
at the N.C. rally last year. He does good work.

You got any history of where that bike lived?
Is that a Turkey Vulture? ...what is that?

Someone on another thread said it is Charlie Buzzard's sig, who is now passed.

As far as I can determine the bike has lived in ohio and michigan. There are stickers on the inside of the trunk lid from Daytona and Sturgis. With 92k on the odometer I tend to think they are real. So, it could have been painted anywhere.

Looks like Charlie was a Chapter President of the GWRRA at one time.
Seems he's pinstriped many 'Wings.
To ask over there you will have to join their gig, I think..

Old Charlie Bussard (Buzzard) was the signature there for sure - he striped a couple of my Wings years ago. He used to have a place in Paris, KY - there are some imitators and a couple rallies you should be able to find someone to do touch up!

Hey Captain - don't mean to make ya mad but FYI - Charlie Bussard was never a President of a GWRRA chapter...

He just pinstriped bikes. Chapters do not have presidents anyway. I knew Charlie very well and as far as I know, all he did was paint murals and lines - he was a pro... he did two of my Wings. My Blue 85 Aspencade and my pearl white 94 Se model.

Ok. Yeah, I must've misread something.
Pin-striping was a big deal back in the day...
I remember going to shows as a kid and seeing guys with their paint boxes looking for cars to stripe..
Now-a-days they'd probably get ticketed for a handful of reasons.
