We kickstarted our Custom Helmet Painter Program a little over six weeks ago, and so far the response has been awesome. Roughly a dozen talented painters on two continents ponied up for the program right off the bat, and their work has been well received by the masses. It's late and I'm tired, so I'm not even going to try and list every painter by name. The smart ones are showing their handiwork online at places like The Jockey Journal. These are random photos I culled from that resource to show everyone who doesn't frequent this message board the kind of custom-painted Biltwell hoods that are out there. I've listed the JJ2 handle of each painter below the image, so if you want to commission any of these guys for a custom helmet of your own, feel free to search JockeyJournal.com for the member and get to it. If you're a painter whose work isn't featured in this abbreviated expose, please email photos of your best stuff along with contact info and prices and we'll feature you in a future blog on this website. To Charlie, Paul, Ryzart, Shad, Mitch and the rest of the painters whose names I can't recall (sorry about that!), thanks a million for all your support.

A metal flake masterpiece by JERRY REED.
Two views of the same flashy helmet from HOTROD72.
This beauty was painted for Wes White at Four Aces Cycles. It matches the bike show winner that Wes and his crew assembled for this year's Smokeout West biker build-off. I think Nick painted it, but I could be wrong. Wes can tell you for sure--give him a call.
FLYINSOLO71 (our good friend Paul) dropped the sweet lightning and lace color scheme on this Biltwell brain bucket. Photos don't do Paul's work justice.
Two very different but equally stylish and unique paint jobs from a Euro dude named BULLER on the Jockey Journal. Dig the lettering...
The name of the guy who painted this baby escapes me, but it too has some bad-ass lettering and some really nice pinstriping. I wish I could do cool art like this guy.
This is our good friend Mitch Maciel's personal Biltwell skid lid. Mitch goes by ALTERED PILOT on the JJ2, and he's our go-to guy for dope paint jobs. If you don't believe me, just check out Billdozer's custom Altered Pilot masterpiece below...
matte black striping on a gloss black helmet, gold accents with classic freehand lettering. Gotta love it.
Thanks again to all the talented painters who are a part of the Biltwell Custom Painter Helmet program. If you want to participate in this program, please email us your name, mailing address and phone number and Chris will send you more info.
