    Custom Helmet Paint Job

    I know there's been some posts for paint jobs for frames, but what about helmets, specifically a full face? There are lots of online places to get this done, but prefer to keep biz local if possible - anyone know someone or some shop that can do this?

    Thanks!

    Usually those stands in the mall that do license plates will also do helmets.

    Most of the frames are powdercoat. My bro-in-law has a bud that's an air brush artist. Want a #?

    I've seen artwork on some of our local infrastructure such as retaining walls, road signs and buildings that are inspirational. Perhaps the local county clink might have some artists?

    Try license-pl8@bighouse.gov.

    Glad you brought that up . . . completely forgot about that as an option too. There's a company in the UK, Slik Graphics, that I got some Boxxer decals from. The day I ordered them, he had none on stock, so he managed to make them and deliver in less than a week . . . not bad from across the pond with about $4 shipping.

    Anyways, if you look at the site, he can customize anything - in part or whole. He's got a bike on there that is covered in a custom decal and looks great if you like bling, bling stuff.

    Check it out . . . http://www.slikgraphics.com/.

    Custom painter

    I have a friend who does custom skate decks, and painted some killer sugar skull (day of the dead skullls) on a frame for me. I am sure he would gladly do some dope sh@t on a full face helmet. If interested PM me and I will get you in touch w/ him.

    Attached are photos o decks he has done. The Arcade Fire and Denver Nuggs decks are mine
