2009 GMRRA Sport Show Class Winner!

 

I have always had a thing for custom painted bikes. I have always wanted to own a bike with high quality custom paint complete with airbrushed artwork. Last fall I scratched this itch and hired James Scott www.paintbyjames.com to do the painting. James did an amazing job and the artwork was exactly what I asked for. I wanted subtle flames and a grim reaper on the fender. The bike received countless grim reaper theme custom paint with true fire flames - Suzuki B-king airbrush paint by James Scott Tacoma WA Washington skulls flames fire  Road-Quest.comaccolades from bikers I met out on the road and in some case just folks in shopping mall parking lots. Unfortunately weeks after the custom airbrushed artwork was completed I was involved in a motorcycle accident that damaged some of the painted plastic. Insurance game through and covered the repairs and new paint. I wanted to bring back the Grim Reaper theme but decided to ditch the subtle approach and go with  brighter and more luminescent flames. Most refer to the flame type as true fire flames or real fire flames. I also wanted the Grim Reaper on the sides as well as on the front fender. This time I wanted the Grim Reaper pointing to the front. Kind of a "Your next" look to it. James is a highly skilled artist and painter so none of this was a stretch for him. Hell, he even did some prefabricating and made some cool side case badges out of PVC to bring the artwork lower on the bike and round things out. My B-King has been in James's garage fort the past several weeks undergoing the transformation. I had no idea the amount of time and detail that goes into this type of airbrushed paint work. First the parts required prepping for paint. Once prepped the Grim Reaper airbrushed artwork was done. This required many layers of different colors of paint. The flames were then airbrushed and they were airbrushed on in four layers each with its own color of paint. The sequence was red, orange, yellow and white. These were followed by Candy Gold and then cover with several coats of clear coat. I was provided pictures as the paint transformation took place. The paint is now complete and will enter its first bike show in the South hill Mall October 24th - 25th. A video will follow. A big Thanks to James Scott, owner & artist of Rods to Hogs -  PaintbyJames.com.
