I saw a Triumph Daytona at Americade with incredable 3D flames on the fairings. They were custom made by a company called Suicide Cycles (www.suicidecyclez.com). Has anyone else had any fairings made by them? I am thinking about contacting them to see what they cost and then maybe jazzing up my bike at bit. They look awesome up close.

Those pictures don't do them any justice. they look like something that was created in the 80's. Gayness IMO.

RE the fairings

If I hadn't seen them up close I would probably agree. Pics on site need some help. Just tired of seeing the same tired flames / airbrushing on the bikes. This looked unique. Not sure what they could do with an R6, though.

go with a real custom paint job, with hologram graphics, or camilian paint, but if you stunt or are prone to wreck don't do it. I am not prone to wreck mine, but I had a little mis hap last month and scraped some paint off my rear fairing, now I will have to get the whole bike repainted just to get it to match.

I think they look "tackey" go with something a little more custom then that.

:withstupi , I think it looks really :gary:. I'd just get a complete custom paint job and have them airbrush something really nice and original. Not those, they look like they just use a form and then put them on the outside of the bikes, like they'll pop right off after a while. I didn't check the site so I don't know how exactly they are done, but that is the way it seems to look.

:withstupi Unfortuanatly I don't have much more for suggestions... try to get some "ghost flames" air brushed. The ones on the site definately look too 80's styling to me as well. Ghost flames look awesome... I'm sure you can do a google search for that and find what you're looking for.

OMFG!!!! I guess I had a good idea! :lol: I know a painter, he's my long life best friend in Maryland. He does awesome work he has his own business he mainly does boats and fiberglass work, but he does alot of custom motorcycle paint jobs. Its Dave's Bodyworx. If anyone would ever like to get something custom painted let me know by PM or email I can give you his contact information.

And why would anyone want 3D flames or anything else on their bike? One thing to get something airbrushed for that custom look, but to actually bubble out the plastic fairing is just :bash:
