LumiLor Light Paint

This new LumiLor™ Electroluminescent Coating System is pretty amazing. Complicated and expensive, but amazing.

It is not glow in the dark, it’s an actual paint that lights up. Can you imagine riding around with a glowing helmet?

Tribulations of Being a Motorcycle Owner with Children

Thanks to the Why We Ride website, my day started off watching this unbelievably chill dad exploring his kids’ motorcycle paint job.

"Oh, gooood. You guys got the front, too." He says. "Yeah, Daddy! Look right here!" They excitedly point at their yellow and white paint slapped across their dad’s Black Honda Goldwing.

"Sarah, you understand I am not happy about this, ok? I am amazingly calm about this." 

Chopper shit (also just cool paint styles for classic cars and bikes in general) from the 60’s-70’s.

I find it appropriate to see a motorcycle painted with oils. 
Leads to the original artist are appreciated- reverse searching didn’t turn up much past tumblr and pinterest.

One of my favorite things from the Black Mass show- this Yamaha XS Chopper (owned by a nice fella named Josh) with a beautiful DIY paint job that he’s ridden all over the West Coast.

Detail shots of my seriously awesome Monster tank with custom paint by Jeff Yarrington. Logo by Chris Dunlop.

Every time I look at it I hear the guy in Wizard of Oz go, “IT’S A TANK OF A DIFFERENT COLOR!”

To see this bad boy in action watch the walk around video on YouTube.

Todays project- paint it black. Justin’s Maxim has a lot of aluminum that has worn over time. Solution? Metal primer and matte black spray paint.

The Monster Project: Phase 8

Last I posted, I was flimflamming about what kind of logo to put on the tank of the bike. The paint scheme was already all planned (thank you all for the suggestions, though) and I just needed to top it off with the right version of the Ducati logo for the mood of the bike. 

At this point, I can finally show you guys something definitive… so you can see where I’m going with this whole project. (Full views and videos after the cut.)

I’m not sure if I’ve stated this or not, but I’m going for a retro stylized mean lookin’ moto. Put these in your brain and shake ‘em around: Classy, ivory, racing, glitter. What do you get? The best paint scheme ever.

After fender paint and gas tank change. Timmy wanted his bike to be matte black so he can be cool, too. Somewhat ironically his bike was cream colored before, which is my uber favorite for motorcycle color themes…

Tim removes his fenders so I can paint them while I scope out the airhead filled shop… (and I am not talking about my blonde self.)
