Custom Paint- show it

Being a custom paint enthusiast, I like to see what people have. So if you've got some custom paint of art... post it!

Here are some pictures of Hayabusa's I've painted over the last year...









Ugly to me, but you gotta do what the customer wants...

Nice work, shame about the "canvas".

Evil, I like it.

Well except for the last one.

It would be cool to have a paint job like that but then you wouldn't want to ride it for fear of scratching it. Guess that's why it's on a busa...

Yeah, that's true. The blue busa was later made to ride on the street too. After spending that much on it, he wanted to get more use out of it. I heard the owner just sold it to a former LA Dodgers player.

Here's my work in progress, a 996 I recently purchased. Corse themed fade Black to Candy Red. Carbon is slowing me down with pinholes that are hard to fill entirely. Airbrushing to be applied throughout before being buried under final full coat of red Candy. Finally nice to do something for myself after countless hours of thankless (but paid) work for those "other" twin owners...
Like the work you put into the Busa's - as well as your site

Seems I'm only a good painter - not getting a visual on my attachment - take a look at the Ducati gallery if you have the time.

Checked it out, pretty smooth. I'm a fan of reds/oranges, so I like it. Yeah, I hear you about carbon fiber. The gel coating is a bitch sometimes when it comes to pinholes and nicks around the edges.

my custom jobs

I just started doing custom paint jobs last year. I have a couple of bikes under my belt now.

here's my SV (my first custom paint job)

I wanted something different and eye catching for this and since my Yosh is a bit loud... thought a loud and hot flame job was fitting. Not the best flames but I am working on that... was all freehand though and no stencils

and that bike lead to this paint job for a friend on his Z1000


I have a Ninja 500r that is getting a custom paint job this fall when I get more time. Will likely do some airbrushing on it too. Not quite up to par with Iron Plated's work (cool stuff) but I am working on it

My prices range from $1200 to $3000+ depending on what you want. I do the true fire flame jobs on sportbikes for around $1995. House of Kolor paints and clear coat, so you are looking at $300 in materials alone. 2 week turn around.
