Custom Paint Jobs On A Motorcycle: Choosing A Paint Scheme

Posted on

Picking a paint scheme for your bike can be one of the more challenging aspects of building one. There are a lot of colors out there, but figuring out which ones match your personality and taste is far from easy.  The custom motorcycle building community is huge, so you can find plenty of information. The following motorcycle artwork guide will help you choose the right paint features for your bike. 

Choosing the Right Color for Your Motorcycle 

There are things to consider when choosing the right color scheme for your motorcycle.

First, think about the type of bike you have and how it fits into the surrounding environment. If you're going to ride through a lot of rain and dirt, then you're going to want a darker color scheme with fewer reflective elements. If you live somewhere where most people ride motorcycles on sunny days (like California), then you might want something that's more reflective and eye-catching.

You also want to think about whether or not your bike will have any lights on it (like turn signals). If so, make sure that they are compatible with the color scheme of your bike, so they look nice together!

Choosing Shapes

You also need to decide on the shape you want to paint. There are many styles to choose from, including flames, skulls, tribal patterns, and more. You can even have your own artwork transferred onto the motorcycle.

The most common type of custom paint scheme is flame jobs. These involve painting flames on the sides of the motorcycle, with each one following a different pattern. Skulls are another popular option because they look intimidating and are easy to recognize from afar. Some people opt for tribal designs that have been around for centuries and have become renowned for their beauty and power. 

Choosing Stylistic Elements and Artwork

When you're choosing your artwork, you have a lot of options. You can choose from different styles of art, including realistic, abstract, pop art, and more. You may also want to consider how much detail you want in your artwork.

A smaller amount of detail is appropriate if you want your bike to have a more traditional look. If you want something more modern, then you'll need something that's more detailed and has a lot of colors.

Consider if you want to have a more traditional look for your bike. Is it an old-school chopper, or is it the latest sports bike? Is it something with an old-school feel or something more modern?

The more time that goes into creating your design, the better quality it will be and the longer it will last. However, there are cases where this isn't necessary at all. Some people just want to get their ideas out there quickly without spending too much time on them so they can get back to riding as soon as possible!

Another thing to consider when choosing artwork is whether or not it will fit on your motorcycle; if it's too big or too small, then it won't look right!
