Lord of the Rings Motorcycle

Whew…a huge chunk of my life was devoted to this Paintjob and a lot of people came through to help me out with different aspects of this bike. It started as a Stock Harley Davidson Limited Low and I Changed the Base to a House of Kolor Cocoa Pearl Basecoat. The amount of artwork and the number of characters and theme were a huge challenge to my airbrushing chops. Not only the artwork, but just the layout and composition took a lot of time to figure out beforehand to have all three movies and the major characters from the movies on a motorcycle. It’s a good thing this bike has some of the most surface area of any bike out there, otherwise, there would have been some pretty substantial artistic and composition sacrifices made to limit what could go on the bike.

As if there wasn’t enough to figure out on this bike, it has LumiLor on the front fender!  LumiLor is an electroluminescent coating system that is applied like a paint, which lights up with the flick of a switch.

The LumiLor is on the front fender and is under all the artwork with the “Ring.” When the paint is OFF, it looks just like a ring painted on the background. When the paint is turned ON, I was able to paint it to look like in the movie when the magical inscription reveals itself in the fire.  Check out the link here to see the LumiLor and the Artwork in action-  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pwrTGJJsClU
