Motorcycle Paint Job: Mint green bobber

Last week we had a motorcycle paint job for a custom bobber bike. The parts were bright red to begin with, but called for a softer, more vintage look for vision the customer had in mind for the way he wants to customize the bike. Therefore, there was no exact color code for this paint job. The customer had an idea of what kinds of look he was going for and showed us some pictures he had saved on his phone. He wanted a light, almost mint colored green. He and Tim looked through our paint color catalogs. We have a couple of these paint color catalogs at the shop for customers to look at. It's by no means a complete inventory of all the colors ...

Motorcycle Paint Job: Match to original color

A recent motorcycle paint job gave us a run for our money when it came to matching the color of the fender to the tank. Being mindful of keeping the gas tank as original as possible, the customer didn't want to repaint the tank, but wanted the fender to be painted to match the tank.

The paint was looking a bit rough, and they wanted the exact same paint job to bring it back to its original glory. This custom motorcycle paint job may have posed a problem for some, but Tim is great at working with the lines of a certain design and getting them to match up just right. He was able to tape off the lines and create the exact same look the bike originally had. After taping lines and applying custom mixed paint, the motorcycle now looks brand new again, with the same paint job the customer had in the very beginning. ...

Latest Custom Motorcycle Paint Job

The latest custom motorcycle paint job included repair for a small dent in the tank and a custom paint scheme, using several different colors. It has a black and blue marble effect on a silver base, with a tribal design and white border dividing the two layers. When it comes to painting bikes, there are so many possibilities for custom paint schemes. Even after this one was done, Tim kept thinking about new ways to possibly design the silver layer, like maybe a marble effect there as well or more shading of the edges or giving it more of a layered steel look. Doing these bike paint jobs are a lot of fun. Tim is able to get creative, and ...
