Killer Paint is often known for over-the-top paint jobs. However, fantastic results can be achieved with a relatively modest amount of artwork added to an existing paint job.

Joe B. had previously had his lower fairing add-on pieces painted for his Harley, and last month he finally decided to bring his ride back to have the rest of the bike done to match.

2012 FLHR Road KingHis 2012 FLHR Road King still had its stock Candy Red and Beer Bottle two-tone, similar to the bike pictured above.

The idea was to add artwork across the bike to match the flames and skulls on the lower fairing pieces done previously, while keeping much of the feel of the stock paint design intact.

The darker sections were filled in across the whole bike with much of the artwork. In this case, the skulls and some fire. Additional flames were added in as an accent where appropriate, in the red areas on the bike.

Road King Fender Two Tone DetailThe front fender and side covers were given a Beer Bottle Brown two tone and pinstripe to match the stock paint scheme, as well as matching artwork in those areas.

While the bike was still in progress, Joe brought in some skeletal rear-view mirrors that he had found. They were going to be a perfect match to his bike when once it was done. The chrome skeleton arms and hands were masked off so that the mirrors could be painted red to match.

The result is an effective look. By not overloading the bike with the design and working within an existing paint scheme, you can still achieve a big impact. Wallpapering the parts with artwork is not necessarily the best approach every time.
