Default Custom Painting & Machining - FlameThrower Customs

Highest quality custom painting service at reasonable prices. Retro styles, flames, stripes, airbrushing, kandies, flakes, pearls, etc. I use House of Kolor paints, substrates and clearcoats and everything is buffed to a mirror-like finish.

I also offer custom-maching services. Forward controls, motor mount plates, brass exhaust tips, air cleaners, pegs, risers, gas caps, etc.

Send an e-mail or give me a call if you have any questions or want to discuss paint or machining or just want to bounce some questions off of me. I have shipped custom-painted tins and helmets all over the USA, Canada and Europe.

I just completed custom-painting this tank that an extremely talented buddy chopped out of a fat-assed OEM H-D tank.

I was asked to "fish-mouth" a set of brass exhaust tips for 1.75" pipes. I've made lots of "regular" brass exhaust tips but ever tried to do this before... they turned out pretty cool.

Just completed this tank for Mike in Indiana, who axed this extra-sweet razor-thin frisco'ed peanut tank himself. Orion Silver basecoat, silver metal flake, an overall coat of Tangerine & Root Beer Kandy mix and all the graphic rendered in Kandy Root Beer. Needs a final wet-sanding & buffing... but the final clearcoat came out almost like glass in these pics.

I never imagined leaving welds on tanks to paint but it looks kinda tuff, nice work on the paint really dig the color choice and that really small pattern you got goin there.

The fabricator of the tank wanted people to realize it was HIS hand-fabricated tank and not a manufactured piece. And it does look really tuff yet unobtrusive.

Thanks for your kinds words regarding my paintwork.

Just a simple job for a very bare-knuckles-brawler Sporty cafe racer bike located out in Montana. The owner modded the tank with that deep "well" for his speedo to sit into and he made the small tailpiece from scratch.

Here are a couple new maching jobs that I recently completed.

Here are a set of Sporty 39mm fork legs that I turned down for a guy out in Colorado..





And this is a custom-made steering stem for a Harley Sprint race-bike and, coincidentally, to another guy in Colorado.

Machined this brass gas tank filler neck and 2" brass exhaust tip for a collector on a custom-fabbed set of 2-into-1 pipes. Wanted them a bit embellished yet still "all bizness".

Recently-completed and shipped to a buddy/client in Alabama. BTW, that is also one of my custom-machined gas caps installed on this tak.

Completed this custom-built parts for Ray, who is a local client about 45 minutes from me. The Triumph boardtracker that Ray built is epic... and he hand-fabbed these gas tanks and the oil tank.

This is a "weathered" Union Jack flag on a fiberglass Manx tank for a very cool 1970's Triumph for a great young dude about an hour away from me.
