Ghost Flame Paint Job on a Harley tank

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 tank, or doing something more custom. After looking at some pictures online and of ...

Tis the season for bike parts!

Riding season is almost here! We get just as excited to finally take our motorcycle out for a cruise when this time of year rolls around. The sun is out, and it's time for some wind therapy!
