This Harley-Davidson got a custom airbrushed skull paint job! Tim, owner and expert painter that he is, has been working on new airbrush options and these skulls are killer!
Harley-Davidson emblems, or any logo, can be recreated with vinyl and then painted in any color. This allows us to go with any color scheme you want, while keeping the logo/ emblem in tact. In this case, we went with a classic Harley-Davidson emblem.
The first step in this paint job was to lay a silver base. The green color is the vinyl lettering that will ultimately stay silver. ...
Customizing your paint job has never been easier!
Decals offer tons of different options for customizing your paint job.
At TD Customs, we are able to design something on the computer, print it on a plotter and use the vinyl cut out as a stencil or template for what you'd like painted. A popular option is painting a logo or custom image on your vehicle, motorcycle, helmet, etc. It also opens the door to many other design possibilities. A paint job can be turned into so much more with the flexibility that decals allow.

Fade Paint Job on Harley-Davidson Parts
One of the recent motorcycle paint jobs we've done was on these Harley- Davidson parts. The owner went with a custom fade paint job using candy apple red. The pieces go from a lighter candy apple red on top to a darker cherry red on the bottom.
You can see how the colors go from light to dark. Both shades of the red look vivid and eye catching. The variation is visible both outside in the sun or in the shade.
How a fade paint job is done depends on the colors being used. The owner wanted it to be a subtle red fade ...

About a year ago, we painted a batch of red marble motorcycle parts. The very base color was silver. We then painted the vivid red color on top, and did the marble effect to it. This involves using plastic wrap to lift some of the second coat off, revealing some of the silver.

This personalized, custom painted helmet is a gift for an employee retiring from a local law firm. His coworkers wanted to give him something special to remember them and the company by. Since he is a big motorcycle rider, they decided on a personalized motorcycle helmet.
A helmet to remember
We printed vinyl decals of the company's logo to put on the sides of the custom painted helmet. For the back, we made one that read, "In Recognition of Service to..." These two elements alone make the helmet personalized and one-of-a-kind.
We love it when customers ...
Two toned motorcycle paint jobs are a great way to spice up the look of your bike while still keeping it simple. This orange and black paint job combines an awesome sparkly orange color on top with solid black on the bottom. From certain angles, the orange has all kinds of shimmer and you can spot shades of yellow and even green when the sun hits it.
We painted the entire bike for this paint job, which included the tank, front fairing, side covers, hard bags, and fender.
The two hard bags were all orange, while the other motorcycle parts were painted the ...
This Polaris Slingshot paint job came in for an updated look to the front end. Instead of the rebel flags, the owner wanted black flames to cover the front.
This is the first Slingshot we've had the pleasure of working on. It's in between a motorcycle and a sport car, and is classified as a three-wheeled motorcycle. The owner came from over 3 hours away in Virginia to get the custom painted flames painted on it. He said he loves riding it through the mountains and it can go up to 150 mph!

Ghost flame paint jobs let you play around with the look of your motorcycle depending on the way the light hits it. If you like a subtle look that also pops and looks unique and eye-catching, ghost flames are a cool way to do it. In the shade or from certain angles, you typically won't see anything. And then when the light hits it, you see the flames or whatever design you have ghosted in.
For this Harley-Davidson motorcycle tank, the owner went with a black base to match the rest of the bike. He was debating between painting silver stripes down the sides of the ...
Sometimes all you need is a little change. That was the case with this Ducati tank paint job.
The tank was in for a subtle paint and logo change. It started off a vivid white color with a bright red block letter 'Ducati' logo.
The Ducati logo with block letters is their current logo, while the script was their older logo. Replacing the newer logo to the script version gives it more of a vintage vibe.
Here is what the Ducati motorcycle tank looked like Before...
The owner of the bike had a tiny decal of the Ducati logo he wanted. Many times, we can find ...
