JoAnn Bortles. We're in the midst of the biggest boom in motorcycle customization since the days of Easy Rider. Today's custom bikes are regarded as rolling art with custom paint jobs that can cost thousands - or even tens of thousands! - of dollars. Custom painter and author JoAnn Bortles offers a primer on painting basics but mainly focuses on more elaborate paint schemes and techniques that produce head-turning results. Popular chopper and cruiser paint elements such as skulls, flames, and candy paints are covered, as are techniques for custom painting sport bikes.

Synopsis:

This book presents detailed, step-by-step instructions for a variety of custom projects, including evil skull flames, pinups, pinstriping and more! Contains tips and techniques for beginners and more advanced custom painters.
