Ducati tank paint job

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 logos and certain other images online for our printer to print out for us. This one ...

Indian Motorcycle Paint Job

We have been doing a ton of motorcycle paint jobs lately. I guess we aren't the only ones getting excited about for riding season! The weather is getting nicer here in the WNC/ Asheville area, and we can't wait to take the bike out for a cruise. If you're thinking about a new paint job for your motorcycle, now is the time to bring it in! One of the latest bike paint jobs was for an Indian motorcycle. We needed to paint the tank, fenders, headlight housing and a couple other small pieces. The owner chose the colors from our paint catalogs, choosing a brownish red color with cream and gold for the accents. The 'Indian' name and pinstriping ...

Red marble motorcycle paint job

Look at that gorgeous marble red paint job! Marble effect in paint is such a cool way to add some depth into your paint job. It gives you a unique custom paint job that you won't see anywhere else. This custom silver and red marble paint job was done for a Harley Davidson Ultra Classic motorcycle. This one has quite a few parts to it. There was a tank, a fairing, saddlebags, a tail bag, and side covers. The paint booth was full the day we painted this bike! This marble paint job took a silver base with red on top. The owner primarily wanted to see the bright red with only a slight marble effect (rather than seeing a lot more of the ...

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! We always see a jump in motorcycle paint jobs right before Spring, and this year is no different. In the last month, we've done quite a few motorcycle paint jobs. Some are brought in for full paint jobs, others just need their existing paint jobs touched up. One recent motorcycle paint job was a candy purple paint job for an '86 Honda Shadow 1100. Another motorcycle paint job we did recently was a complete color change for a 2002 Suzuki GSXR crotch ...

The Light Up Motorcycle at Myrtle Beach Bike Week

Myrtle Beach Bike Week was a blast! TD Customs was there with our light up motorcycle to show the town what Lumilor is all about. Myrtle Beach Bike Week: Fall 2016 Myrtle Beach Bike Week is a fun time to bring your bike and hit the town with others who share the same passion. There is a great community of motorcyclists in town during the two bike weeks they have. Plenty of bars welcome bikers and have bands throughout the night. During the day, there are also bands and vendors set up at certain bars and the Harley-Davidson of Myrtle Beach. Murrell's Inlet has a bunch of biker bars. These bars are great because they're spaced out so you can pull ...

Each one is different, so you can choose the design you like best. How to Choose?! If you want a custom painted helmet, but don't know where to start, start by narrowing down the ...

The Helmet Halo

The Helmet Halo is a new portable motorcycle helmet holder that travels easily and protects your helmet from dents, scratches, and the possibility of theft. We had the pleasure of meeting Helmet Halo Owner and Asheville local, David Turner, a couple weeks ago. He brought a few Helmet Halos into the shop for us to display for our motorcycle enthusiasts. David designed the helmet halos after he cracked the mouth-piece vent on his helmet when it fell. It was a small, yet pricey replacement. Helmets are bound to take a fall here and there, so a helmet holder reduces the risk of it falling off the bike or the table or wherever you end up riding to. ...
