We have shown pictures of this bike before, but Jim keeps adding more pieces! We love this look on his Honda F6B. Jim kindly included the following note with the pictures...
"Michael & Karla, Once again you hit it out of the park. The quality of the skulls on my F6B cockpit doors, is fantastic.
Thanks to you and your staff for what I think is truly beautiful artwork.
Attached are a few pics of the pieces installed.

This bike is a one of a kind. Michael Chapman and his wife chose alligator on white to coordinate with this black GL1800. Please take a minute or two to look at the accessories and accents we did to make this bike customizing complete.

This fabulous Glint Wave Blue GL1800 is owned by Dwain Brown of NC. The Kryptec pattern on his bike is one of our newest and quickly becoming a favorite with our customers. Great choice Dwain. The bike looks awesome!
The beautiful bike below is owned by Brian Coulson of Minnesota. Brian chose a solid color to compliment his titanium GL1800. The depth and metallic flake of the gold is difficult to see in the picture, but Brian is very happy with the finished look. Thank you Brian!
These beautiflul GL1800s are owned by Nicole Morales and her partner. They were both done in the same digital camouflage pattern but with different base colors. The base color is a color match to their bikes. You can see how the pattern lends itself to different colors. Thank you Nicole!
This impressive trailer is owned by Don and Mary Peyton. You may remember the trike our air brush artist did for them with a military theme. When it was time to do their trailer, Don and Mary entrusted us with the entire paint job. They trailer came to us in gelcoat straight from the factory. We color matched their Harley and added more airbrushing that continues their tribute to the United States military.
This is a die-hard Gator fan. Many of you may recognize Geno, our Supervisor/Installer. This past year we completed a project on Geno's white GL1800, making it white with red and blue trim.
Now, Geno has taken his 2003 GL1800 and given it that "Euro" style with no top trunk. He has also added some accessories in Blue with Black Marble to make this a truly fan owned Gold Wing.
Kenny loves Clemson University. He loves them so much he had us put their Tiger Paw logo on his front speaker screens. Show your support! We can add your favorite team, sport, organization, etc. to your speaker screens too!
Look how beautiful these speaker screens look on Kenny's bike.
Look at these beautiful powder coated Candy Red wheels with this Candy Red GL1800. Outstanding! John Ford chose to powder coat his wheels for a really sharp looking Gold Wing. Great choice John!

Al, pictured here with his beautiful 2013 Candy Prominence Red GL1800, had his Wing Bling done with a color match base and a heavy dark marble and some red flake. The work sparkles in the sunshine. Al also had our airbrush artist paint flames on his exhaust shields. He is now on a motorcycle vacation touring our lovely country.
He looks happy...don't you think?
This beautiful 2013 GL1800 in Alizarin Red is owned by Glenn Townson. Glenn chose our medium carbon fiber to accent his bike. Glenn has also added some of Kuryakyn's Black Out accessories. We painted his saddlebag covers to color match his bike making the black out lights stand out even when not lit. We also color matched the lower part of the cockpit to complete the look. Thank you Glenn, your bike looks fantastic!
Russ Ryss of FL has added color matched pieces with our "fish scale" pattern. What Russ likes is that the pattern is very subtle and from a distance it barely visible. But as you walk up to it the pattern becomes more and more evident. Russ says it's like getting a little surprise each time you approach the bike. So glad you like it Russ! We also color matched Russ' trailer to match his Cabernet Red GL1800. Click on either of the pictures below to go to see more pictures of the work we did on this bike.
This beautiful 2012 GL1800 is owned by Richard Ingis of New Jersey. He has had Wing Bling put on some different pieces that most others and do we like the way it looks! Richard had us do the bottom of his trunk which adds a nice detail to the rear along with the rear fender below it. Thanks so much Richard!
We featured this meter panel a couple of weeks ago, but check out what Jim has added. The license plate trim and scuff plates look AWESOME on his F6B! Love this bike and Love this pattern. Reaper skulls. If you are into skulls we have many patterns to choose from. Contact us for a more extensive selection than what we have online. Thanks Jim, we think your parts look great!
Do you have a favorite team? A favorite organization? Maybe your Chapter designation? What a nice way to diplay a logo. Specialty Graphix can add any of the above to your speaker screen covers. We can a military insignia, your rank or your ride name. Robert, meter panel on your right, chose the Baltimore Orioles to add to his screens. We can add the loga over your color and pattern or can just do the screens. All plain screens with logos are first painted black and are clear coated to avoid the fading that occurs over time. Check out our Speaker Screen tab on the left or ask and see what we can do for you!
Who says you can't put skulls on a Gold Wing? Not Billy Rae! He has added one of our skull patterns, Dead Headz, to his titanium GL1800. Click on the full bike picture to see some of the rest of the work.

This is a new Kuryakyn accessory called an Air Foil. It is designed to alleviate much of the air cavatation that hits the passenger in the back of the head and shoulders. This one is in 2002 Illusion Blue with the "Fish Scale" pattern.
Meet Rusti Boykin. A valued customer and friend of ours. I have posted a letter below that Rusti has sent to Wing World Magazine. She asked if I would share with you here.
When you own a Gold Wing, you like to dress it up and proudly show it off, in my case I was handed down my husbands 1994 GL 1500, so I had to change things a bit just to make it mine. I had a complete custom console kit done by “Wing- Bling”. Mike and Karla Rubin, owners very nice and fun to work with, helpful but not pushy. I was so proud and happy showing off “My New Ride”! Then in June of 2009 I had a serious accident, luckily no frame or motor damage, however much of the “Tupperware” was destroyed. My repair facility ordered all that was needed to fix my baby back up, But there was a slight problem the color didn’t quite match I assumed it was due to fading of the older parts.
Now two years after this accident I was at another Rally and Mike said to bring my bike over for display, when he looked at it he remarked “ What is wrong with you bike”! I reminded him of the accident and said its’ just sun faded, NO WAY! was his reply, this won’t fade.
Well this is when you find out just how reputable a company can be. Mike said he would replace the entire console kit and at no cost to me! I was so shocked . Knowing that this issue wasn’t entirely his fault made me feel a bit uneasy, so we (me and Michael) came with a new plan that I could feel good about. He would do the kit and I could pay ½ of the installation cost.
Keeping to his word in July at “Wing-Ding35” Michael and his crew installed the new “matching” kit ,my ride is once again BEAUTIFUL! Michael and Karla stood behind their product and reputation, a vendor that all of us should be proud and happy to do business with.
Kudos to Mike & Karla Rubin! From a very happy rider.
Kudos to you Rusti! Thank you so much for taking the time to let us know we're doing something right. It takes special customers to keep a business going and we know you're one of them!
Below are some new pictures of some of our work. Not all the work is new, but the pictures haven't made it onto the website till now. All of them are links to other pages of pictures of that bike. Hope you enjoy the variety of colors and patterns our customers have chosen to accentuate their bikes.
No, you're not seeing double! That is Ed and Jeanette with their 2002 GL1800 Illusion Blue on the right and their newly painted 2012 GL1800 Illusion Blue on the left! Ed loved the color SO much on his 2002 that he had us paint his brand new 2012 the same color. We have to say we are ALL very happy with the finished look. Ed picked out a relatively new pattern that is gaining in popularity, we call it fish scales. Click on the picture above to see more pictures of the Wing Bling on this beautiful bike. Thanks so much to Ed and Jeanette for giving us the opportunity to service their painting needs. Please click on the picture above to go to a page of pictures of Ed & Jeanette's bike.
This is Neal Munn of Savannah, GA. Another happy customer! Who wouldn't be with that beautiful GL1800! Our installers went to Neal when he couldn't make any other arrangements and got everything in tip top shape.

Sarah and Pete of Bike MP3 chose Specialty Graphix to paint Sarah's Pacific Coast, pictured above. We did not only the Black with the water drops, but the entire bike. The Pacific Coast needed some tlc with several body parts needing repair. After all repairs were made, the bike was painted pearl white with black/water drops being used on all the accent pieces. Our in-house air brush artist added Sarah's name to the back and Voila! it is ready for the open road. Thanks to Sarah and Pete for entrusting us with this complete restoration and hope that Sarah has many safe and enjoyable miles on her Pacific Coast. Click on this picture to see a page of pictures of Sarah's bike.
This beautiful 1999 GL1500SE is owned by Jay and Melanie Bogle. Their trike is a Pearl Silver/Dark Silver two-tone that looks mauve sometimes, silver sometimes. They chose a silver/grey base with our closed marble pattern to compliment their trike. As you can see in the pictures here, the newly painted parts look silver sometimes and pick up the color of the bike other times. Thanks so much to Jay and Melanie for choosing Wing Bling for their trike.
This beautiful bike is owned by Richard of Fayetteville, NC. Richard is a returning customer who decided to change the look of his bike from solid white to a stunning blue with a black marble vein running through it. Much of the chrome you will see on this bike was on it before the parts were painted. In many instances, if your chrome is in good condition, it can be removed and the tape replaced or rejeuvenated to use on your bike again. Click on this picture to see more of Richard's bike.
This beautiful trike is owned by Pete and Shirley of Texas. They LOVE sea turtles. They have watched them, read up on them, swam with them and now they Ride with them! Pete and Shirley discussed what they wanted to put on their trike, brought us some pictures and we turned Rich, our air brush artist, loose. Click on this picture to go to a page full of pictures. By the way, Pete and Shirley now LOVE their trike!

We also do graphics and color blocking. Check out these two examples below. A white bike with red pin striping and an upper kit in red. Wow, looks beautiful. And this 2012 in Glint Wave Blue was color matched on all the black and silver parts. Call today for an estimate or to discuss plans for your next project.
Ms Twyla Jones wanted something subtle, discreet, ghostly almost. She chose to add our lava pattern over her pearl white Wing. The effect is perfect for her. The lava is a silver pattern which allows alot of the base color to show through. You can see it best on the glove box door. Click on it for a bigger picture. In the sun the pattern is more pronounced but in less light it is very ghostly.
This beautiful white trike is owned by Henry Waxler of Texas. He has put a "lightning bolt" pattern on his parts. It is quite colorful, especially on white. This is not a pattern that could go on just any color, but with the white...WoW! Thanks Henry!
Click on the picture on the left and go to close up pictures of the cockpit or go to our 1500 page under Gold Wing Products.
Wow! What a compliment for us! BEST PAINT at a local show. Congratulations Mike!
Check out this beautiful Harley! Michael of Citrus County, FL had us paint his 1996 Road King a beautiful electric blue with mild snake skin all over. After he saw the beautiful audio fairing we did for Mike (see below), he had us add one to his bike too. All painted pieces are patterned in the mild snake skin. Click on any of the pictures for a larger view. You'll notice we have painted some chrome accessories to match the bike. A little accent here and there, a splash of color. It can make your bike unique to you. Thanks Michael!
Mike from Ocala, FL chose Specialty Graphix to provide his Yamaha Silverado with an audio fairing and custom paint. Mike wanted to show his pride in serving our country and our on-staff artist Rich, added Mike's Corpsman patch to the front of his fairing. We color matched the black of Mike's bike first. He loves it! Thanks Mike.

GL1800 '01-'05 Center Console
We have finally figured it out! Since 2006 Wing Bling has been trying to figure out how to paint and pattern the center console on the 2001-2005 GL1800. The rubbery surface and the flexibility of the piece have made it difficult to figure out. But we finally have the right procedures and applications to make this piece now available to our customers. So if you have a 2001-2005 GL1800 and you would like to finish your cockpit area with this new piece call today to place your order. Click on either of the pictures to go to a page of pictures of Sue's trike.
Charyn and Darryl Scrivens of MD have entrusted Wing Bling to add some extra special touches to their Topeka Gold GL1800.

Thank you so much for your vote of confidence and for choosing Wing Bling to accessorize your GoldWing.
NO BIKE? NO PROBLEM!
Wing Bling can paint and/or pattern anything with a rigid surface. Call us today to discuss your project.
Andy Karakos of NC is pictured here with his second Gold Wing he has asked Wing Bling to dress out for him. Andy chose our Black Open Marble pattern over "Candy Apple Red" backround to compliment his pinstriping and mural by Scarecrow. Because of his Red White and Blue theme the red worked in very well. He has also added an Ulitmate Seat from the Ultimate Seat Company in a two-tone black with red ostrich to finish the custom look.
These beautiful skins belong to John and Pam Ackerland of Panama City. They decided to have a theme done on their H-D Softail. Our airbrush artist, Rich Inman worked with them on their sketches and we all came up with a plan. The bike is painted saphire with bold snake skin applied. Then Rich went to work transforming their bike parts into a dragon. We hope to have pictures of the finished bike very soon. A big Thank You to John and Pam who put their faith and trust in Wing Bling to present them with a paint job they can be proud of.
This beautiful GoldWing Trike is owned by Gerald Burnham of Escondido, CA. The trike conversation was done by So Cal Trike Center in San Marcos, CA. So Cal Trike Center is also an Authorized Wing Bling dealer and dressed out the white trike with Sparkling Blue with White Marble, a striking combination.
