    What a great example of The master's work.
    Black Japan type of finish looks great and is hard to beat.

    Damn, this is the second Von Dutch item this week I have seen. I think it would make the perfect living room decoration. This popped up on my feed the other day... funny that it wasn't actually made by the man himself, but another great master.

    It would be an honor to use it as it was intended IMO.

    Looks like its one of the infamous "Heavy 9 Inchers". Listed as 1 inch collet capacity. Looks like it has a large spindle bore.

    There is another southbend thread talking about this. I posted a link to the bus with the lathe in it, sheldon lathe though.
    South Bend 9" on auction

    Here is a different link to the bus:

    Doubt if it is a real Von Dutch, no flying eyeball.

    seller- hey,Bubba! say this lathe was owned by Von Dutch
    Bubba- that lathe was owned by Von Dutch?

    listing- lathe said to be owned by Von Dutch for sale!!

    it is a cool relatively rare old 459 though, looks in good shape with factory risers.

    It seems the real lathe from the bus is in the bus now, Kafka paid $25K for it, a sheldon. How many lathes would von dutch have owned? Is there room for two in a bus??

    At $4400 its a steal!

    I wonder what my little Von Dutch Logan lathe would be worth, anyone here good at pinstriping?

    The gavel fell at $5813, a far cry from the $21,275 it sold for in 2006. That 2006 sale is probably highest price ever paid for a 9" SB. I wonder if that sale is what some sellers, like "crash" base their prices on.

    The Sothebys sale looks like his estate sale, but hard to say, I have looked thru a bit of the catalog, its some crazy high prices, but that was 2006 when cash flowed like cheap wine.

    Edit: Make sure to sign that pinstripping, or have some kind of logo!

    Poor guy that got suckered probably said: I bought it because von dutch was supposed to have owned it... and had to sell it because he did not....

    How many lathes would he have owned? Seems the one in the bus is authenticated.... I guess it is possible he could have got tired of the SB and moved up to that sheldon at some point.

    Guy lived a crazy life and was always moving shops and towns... wouldn't be surprised if it was his. That said I would also not be surprised if it was faked. I would much prefer to own something he actually made than a tool of his.

    Good point.
    Jeff Decker and his dad got to pre-pick through Von Dutch's stuff and passed on his paint box & brushes, picking (among other things) a gorgeous wooden sign of a rifle, beautifully painted/striped. It hangs in Decker's Hippodrome Studio.

    Jeff told me the paint box ended up selling for way more $$$ than he could imagine the sign ever going for. He still felt the sign was cooler, though.

    I would rather have his painting "Goodbye Cruel World"... to me it showed the depth of his skill beyond a the average realm of a gear head. Also not something Von Dutch made, but owned.
