2016 Ride for Kids Bike Show
This Saturday was the 2016 Ride for Kids Bike Run & Show, hosted by Schroader’s Honda of Hendersonville and the Asheville Outlets, and it was great to see so many cool looking bikes and get to show off our own!
The TD Customs motorcycle was done just in time to make it to the show. It has electroluminescent paint on the tank, hard bags, and front fender that lights up through the blue and silver top coat lace paint job. We painted it to match the TD Customs El Camino, and it looks great in the sun and definitely at night while it’s all lit up. Here is her daytime look…
It was a beautiful day for a bike show. There were a lot of great looking motorcycles, different vendors to check out, and a synchronized motorcycle show to kick it all off. Daytime bike shows aren’t the best venue for showing off a light up paint job, but we were happy to be there with our freshly painted motorcycle and get to talk to some folks about the electroluminescent paint and our custom paint and restoration services.
We saw a bike we painted there, which is always nice. This one is so cool looking too! I love that wheel. This motorcycle needed some touch up work to the pearl white on the back fenders. We kept the custom airbrush work from a previous artist, and just touched up and repainted the areas around it. There was some careful blending needed to make sure the new paint matched the original paint job perfectly. It really looks great in the sun. Everyone was stopping to take a look.
Overall, there was a nice turnout, and some really awesome bikes! Thanks to Schroader’s Honda for putting it on, and hopefully it will be annual event we can plan on being at next year!
We’re excited to hit up some Asheville/ Hendersonville bike nights and the next car/ bike show we’ve got coming up. We’ll be at the WNC Ag Center on July 1 & 2 for their annual Mountaineer Antique Auto Show. We’ll have a booth inside, so be sure to stop by and see the TD Customs El Camino and the motorcycle all lit up!
We have been so crazy busy that we haven’t gotten a chance to take many pictures of the bike at night, so stay tuned for more pictures and video to come! For now, here is Tim, owner of TD Customs and the man behind our next level paint jobs, with our bike all lit up.
