How about LSRU09 in Austin?
Ryan, I'm going to go out on a limb and ask that you reconsider
commissioning some HAMB (with the 4 speed logo) knobs, as the design was great years ago when it was created, and now there's a perfect opportunity to both implement the idea, and create something that 'fits' the HAMB, with an opportunity to rekindle some running expenses.
Even in a limited number (priced accordingly), I think they would sell, and effectively be similar in stature as the early HAMB safety stars...
Your call, and respect accordingly, but I see it as a great opportunity without 'selling-ones-soul'.
pretty sweet deal!
Cool man my car needs a new nob................
yea. THAT would rule. no offence, but the new logos, while cool arent the shift logo. i'd buy one. look awesome on just about anything... even a shift handle
Great looking knobs! Give's me some ideas...
Leave it to Chuck to comment on a glass knob for the enhanced member.
These look pretty cool.
DAMNITT!!!!!!! I want one of those HAMB knobs. NO! not yours pervs. My knob sucks now. Nice work really like the goods.
Hey guys I am a torchworker , and I have talked with chris many of times. Now that my shop is up a running again I am hopefully going be sending some designs out to Chris got some idea's. Pin-ups and all kind's of crazy stuff. I also make kustom art , and i did two of the trophies for the midnight mass 2008. If you want something custom hit them up, they can do or find somebody who can do anything you want. anything , I have been working with glass for 12 years now and have seen some insane stuff done in the industry. I will be at autorama in sac next weekend and am hoping to get some glass done and on display there.
DICHROME RULES !!!!!!
hmm...I've got a few ideas! I wonder how much the custom ones start out at? something with about the same amount of detail work as the HAMB/Jalopy Journal ones.
Ok, glad you guys dig the goods. I see you have a bunch of questions so I'll try to answer them for you.
Terry- Yes, I can see collecting them. In fact I have cases and cases of them; and lots o shelves lined with them. I've been collecting them for 6 years. I think you should start your collection today!
Salty- Yes glass shift knobs. Borosilicate glass, same stuff cookware is made of, and the same glass used in laboratories and satellites shot out into space. Extremely durable!
Bigcheese327- Yes they are more slippery than a plastic knob But definitely kooler than a one of a million plastic knob you see on a bunch of other rides. Plus we can always sandblast some grippers in it for you. Dig?
Scrap Iron- Send me some info, I might be able to make it.
Drewfus- Sounds like a great idea to me, but we just twist up the glass. Marketing is on Ryan. Who's got this logo? Send me a copy, I'll make a sample.
50Lincolnsport- Thanks for the props. I always dig a man who understands where this is all going. I'm still waiting on some samples. Get 'em out, I'll get some holes in them and get 'em on the site. You can start representin my man! Cant wait to see 'em!
Kaydub- Kustom one off knobs are $80.00 quantity orders can receive a deeper discount. We list them at $160.00 on Dichrome.com
Don't forget that we have 17 different size inserts so whether you have a domestic thread pitch or metric our knobs will fit your ride. Without that janky set screw crap! Any other questions, send me a PM. I'll get you squared away!
BTT one more time for explanations...
