Testimonials

I was referred to BD's by a customer of theirs (a common occurrence I have learned!) and I "thought" I knew what I wanted.  After looking around the site and visiting Bryan a few times and seeing the work I didn't really know what I wanted, all the work was so impressive.  I knew wanted pearl white but Bryan suggested I do more...I liked the checker board also but couldn't figure what to do it and make it look good.

One day I called Bryan up and said I would like to do a pearl over black, he had a sample and I drove down...WOW.  So I told him I wanted pearl white, pearl black and a checker board, the rest was up to him.  The final result as you can see is quite impressive and I could not be happier.  I only wish the camera could capture the the colors in the checker board!

Hey Bryan...I have been away on business for the better part of about 4 weeks and have just recently got around to taking everything out of its boxes and starting the reassemble process which is certainly a chore but definitely one of love. I just wanted to take a second to tell you how good these tins look. The new paint job is so hot man. I thought you should know how much your work was appreciated. Have already had about ten friends compliment me on the new paint and the tins are not even on the bike yet. Damn they look good and they came out exactly as imagined. You weren't kidding about how they look in the sunlight. The interior lighting of my shop doesn't do this paint anywhere near the justice that the bright sunlight does. Have to damn near wear a welding mask to look at them and mmmmm that metal flake is exceptionally tasty in the sun. I really think the size of the flake is perfect. Not too large, which would have looked a little too old school for me but not too small to where its not really all that noticeable. All in all you did a great job and I would certainly recommend my friends to you for their bike. I mean I have already had a bunch of them take your info down, so you may get some calls from people looking for quotes and dates and all.

For many years I have thought of building a custom bike. I got started last sept... All was going good until. I got to the paint, did not have a clue what to do. I contacted Brian and gave him what results I wanted. He took charge and finished the paint in a very timely manner but I was overwhelmed with the results. It was important for the theme to fit because it wasn't just another custom bike but a rolling memorial. His personal touch is what made the theme to work.
Thanks Brian

I wanted to drop you a line to let you know how pleased I am with the paintjob. It seems as if everybody takes notice and I am constantly getting compliments. It is truly a one-off custom job. What started as a vague idea is now a rolling vision. Your creative artistry is only matched by your skill with which you perform. The quality is outstanding, the design is striking and the whole package just looks so right!!! I can't believe how the bike has taken on a life of it's own. I could not be happier and I can't thank you enough!

I gotta admit, I was a little nervous about getting a paint job from someone I had never met, but after I saw Bryan's work, my fears were alleviated. The quality and attention to detail are amazing. You can get all the chrome add on's you like, but if you really want to have a custom piece of artwork, look at Bryan's paint jobs, they really make a bike stand out!

Any apprehension I may have had for sending my bike to be painted by someone out of state is now gone. It's better than I could have hoped for. I love it! Nobody could have done a better job. When I get it put on the bike I'll send you photos of my smiling face and the bike of course.

-Steve B, TX  



There's only one word that can describe your work, AWESOME! You made it look exactly like I envisioned it in my mind! I can't thank you enough for all your hard work. I appreciate how you kept me up to date on the progress as well. I hope to ride up and meet you in person one day!

--Brad R, TX 



Rick had dropped off the parts you painted at Ken Wheeler's before he came home from Skeena, so I had not had a chance to see them. Well, yesterday I drove over and looked at them. They are beautiful! Oh Brian, that was a great design. I'm very happy with them. As soon as Ken gets the bike put back together, I will send you some photos of the completed project for you portfolio. Again, thank you very much. I'll make sure I have your website address with me when I ride, so I can tell people who did it.livepage.apple.com

I can even think of a word right now! You have exceeded my expectations, you hit every detail to a T. You rock man - as you said I will win some shows this year! I will be showing it on Sept 30th during Bristol bike night for the first time in front of 5,000 people from the local area. Thanks man, I can wait to get everything together. I haven't ridden that bike since I laid it down on Aug 8th of last year. Thanks for all of your hard work.

After a long and exhaustive search for a paint shop and having multiple conversations with different individuals I finally settled on BD’s Cycles to do my custom paint job.  I was a little apprehensive about picking an outfit outside my area and one whom I did not know.  However, after several conversations with Bryan where he explained all the different paint techniques and options in great detail, I realized he was doing the paintjob in his mind before the paint even hit my tins!  I am totally satisfied, and convinced I made the right decision in going with BD’s Cycles.  I used to live in Laconia NH for twenty two years and made it to every “Laconia Bike Week Rally”.  I watched thousands upon thousands of bikes going up and down Weirs Blvd and lined up to show off at Weirs Beach.  Very few of those bikes can now even hold a candle to the masterpiece you have created with my little Sportster which will now be shown every night on the highways of eastern North Carolina, the Outer Banks, Virginia, and all the bike shows I can get to!

This past year I started my project of taking a 2000 Titan apart and completely customizing it. I saw a bike at a local show that had a paint job that stood out in the crowd. I asked the owner about the paint and he gave me BDS Cycles website. After a few phone calls to Bryan I knew he was the one to trust with my bodywork and paint. I packed up my parts and drove the ten hours from NJ to his shop. We talked about what I was looking for and I knew I was in good hands. I just gave them a few guidelines and let them work their magic. When I drove back down to pick up my parts, I was more than pleased. The recessed taillight, hand fabricated airfoil, framework and gas-tank mounting were all beyond my expectations. The paint design they came up with was exactly what I was looking for. The turn around time and cost of this job was excellent. Everyone who has seen the work has loved it. I know that when this bike finished being assembled it will stand next to any I have seen. I will use BD Cycles for all my future projects. Thanks again to Bryan and Matt at BD’s Cycles

The paint job is the envy of all my friends. BD's Cycles (Bryan) worked with me on the design of the paint job and was very helpful in making sure I got the paint scheme I wanted. Also, he got it completed and back to me in a very timely manner. Most shops would have taken months to do this and his turnaround time was tremendously short AND STILL I GOT A GREAT PAINT JOB. Thanks for the beautiful job!

Just wanted to thank you for the terrific paint job you did on my Valkyrie. I was apprehensive about sending my parts off to be painted and feared that I wouldn't end up with the colors & look that I wanted. I really appreciate your patience and dedication to getting just the right shades & design I was looking for. My Valkyrie gets compliments every time I go out riding. I've entered it in two bike shows and took a 1st and a 2nd with it! Thanks Again!

This is the most awesome paintjob I have ever seen! Thank you so much! That smoothed over tank seam is perfect, it's exactly what I wanted, I couldn't have dreamt it any better than it is! It's going to get a lot of looks in Dallas, and I will make sure they know where that paint job came from! Happy to do business with you!

--Russ C, Rockwell TX



I wanted to write you a small letter of thanks to let you know how much I appreciated all you did for me. This was my first time I have had a motorcycle painted and it was very confusing trying to figure out where to start the process and how to decide on a color and design. The color samples you made for me and discussions about some of the artwork ideas removed all of the stress I was feeling, not knowing what the final product would look like. During the paint process you were also kind enough to remove my wheels for me so that I could polish them and have new tires installed while my bike was down. Thank you for making the whole experience fun and worry-free and most of all for producing a final product that was exactly what I wanted and exceeded my expectations!

After looking at my custom painted Mean Streak, I just can't get over the quality of workmanship that you do. I was a bit leery about sending my tins out of state to someone I never met, but after speaking with you on the phone I knew you were the one I wanted to paint my first custom bike! The colors are "just right" and everyone just drools over the new custom paintjob!!! BD's Cycles is awesome!!

--Buzz O, CT 


I just received the items. Man they look great!. Once again thanks for the great job. I will try to get you the best pictures I can. Thanks for the best job that I could not have even imagine!

Just wanted to send you a few recent photos of the bike. These are much better than the others I sent you. The first 2 shows it was supposed to be in got cancelled due to weather but I finally got it in a show Saturday and it took 1st place!! People love the paint! It is also being considered by Yamaha for their 2006 calendar. Thanks again for a great paint job. Hope your family and new baby are doing well.
