When it comes to personalizing your motorcycle, a custom paint job is often the first choice that comes to mind. While it offers the freedom to achieve the exact look and artwork you desire, it's important to consider the high cost and potential challenges associated with finding a skilled custom painter in your area. And remember; for a custom paint job, the artist has to devote hours of love and labor into JUST your bike. In this blog post, we'll explore an attractive alternative – custom decals by Brave Wolf Customs – that provide the same stunning aesthetic at a fraction of the cost.

The Art of Custom Paint Jobs

Custom paint jobs offer unparalleled artistic expression for your motorcycle. Just like getting a tattoo, it allows you to showcase your individuality and create a unique masterpiece on wheels. However, it's essential to remember that not all painters are equal. Finding a skilled custom painter can be a daunting task, and you may end up paying a premium price for subpar work. There are a lot of extremely talented painters out there so don't be discouraged. We just want to encourage you to do your research and don't be afraid to travel for the right artist.  But don't worry, we have some painter friends we highly recommend!

Any leftover residue can be effortlessly eliminated with adhesive remover. Regular cleaning and maintenance can be performed using your usual bike cleaning methods, excluding pressure washers, which should be avoided on the decals.
