On the heels of their High Fashion custom Super Pista Ultimate pump collection at NAHBS this March, Silca is making available a super limited number of Martini Racing themed pumps painted by this year’s “Best Paint” award winner, Michael Corby of Corby Concepts. With only 25 pumps available beginning at noon EST, today, expect them to go as fast as they look. Details on how to speed to your custom painted masterpiece after the break…
Michael Corby is known outside of the bike community for his work painting helmets for LeMans, F1, Indy, and MotoGP drivers, so it is fitting that a collection of his custom painted pumps are available in May, when racing kicks off for the year in Indianapolis, the hometown of Silca. Each pump features 40 masking steps in the finishing process and utilizes both candy and solid paint colors. “In the sunlight, it is simply insane,” According to Josh Poertner, founder of Silca. “He uses this [process] on the racing helmets to build really elaborate paint jobs with three-dimensionality that are perfectly smooth.”
Each of the pumps will be hand numbered and signed by Michael Corby and will be available at the premium price of $900 each (and if you feel so inclined, there is a matching shirt available).
