TD Customs Featured in Bold Life Magazine

TD Customs was featured in the March edition of Bold Life Magazine. We are excited to share our story with the Hendersonville and Asheville communities.

Help! Our paint cabinet is overflowing!

Hey everyone! TD Customs is running a special on motorcycle paint jobs. Our paint cabinet is literally overflowing with all kinds of cool, leftover paint.

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. ...

Lumilor Lit Motorcycle in Action

Electroluminescent paint turns your motorcycle into a light bulb that you can turn on and off with a switch.

Check out this quick video of the Lumilor lit motorcycle out at night. We definitely get a ton of attention when we take the bike out at night.
