While talking to Don Baumunk, President of Fat Katz, I learned that he was holding tight to a quite interesting collection of Von Dutch memorabilia. Lucky him! I thought you would like to see some of his samples among many, with a short description. 1- Top left: the sign that hung in the 70’s in front of Von Dutch house in Calabasas, CA (it’s just north of Los Angeles).
2- Top right: a close-up on a 22 caliber pistol with a barrel on it featuring an engraving of the famous “Flying Eyeball”. 3- Bottom left: one of Von Dutch business cards that has the phone number colored in black (just below the word “messerschmid’). It is well known that he blacked out his telephone number because he was annoyed by telemarketers calls. He figured out that if you really wanted to talk to him you would come and see him…By the way, Dutch asked Don to build the hack frame of a BMW motorcycle and Don would like to know where it is now and who owns this motorcycle. To talk fenders, gas tanks or Von Dutch, call Don Baumunk at Fat Katz, tel: 530-273-2212
