Paint is the single most noticeable change you can make to
your bike to personalize it. Many people get tired of
seeing their bikes blend into all of the other factory
painted bikes. People are proud of their bikes. The average
motorcycle costs over $10,000. It's not a lighthearted
purchase, but rather a very important one. Many people think
about their dream bike for years before they actually buy
one and in many cases, their bike is a dream come true for
them. So why have your dream look like many of the other
dreams out there? Your ride should reflect who you are and
what makes you different from everyone else.

trucks start at $1500 but most can average $2000-4500,
depending on the size of the vehicle and the amount of
flames that are painted on. We try to design the paint job

I don't live in the Baltimore / Washington area? How can
you still paint my bike or hot rod?
Answer We also ship painted sheet metal all
over the country, so just because you live in Arizona or
some other far away place, does not mean you can't have In
The Weeds Paint on your bike. The parts to be painted are
removed from the bike and any hardware, like gas caps are
removed. The gas tank is aired out and each part is wrapped
in several layers of bubble wrap, packed in its own box, and
shipped to our shop. The paint colors and designs are
worked out by phone calls and/or email. Then we usually do
drawings of the artwork and then email back and forth with
the customer, fine tuning the design until the customer
approves it. Only then is the paintwork done. Once the paint
is done, pictures of the completed paint are emailed to the
customer. Once those are approved the final clear coat is
done and the parts are shipped back to you. If you can not
bring your car, bus or rod to us we can arrange traveling to
You are not limited to the designs you see
on these pages. Each job is individually designed with the
motorcycle, customer, and the budget, in mind."
