This was George Smith’s bike. He had an idea for an Elvis themed paint job. We decided on a picture of Elvis in a black suit overlaid with his signature in red.
George also wanted to add some guitars on the back. I searched online for photos of guitars that Elvis had owned and found the ones you see on the back of the bags. To make them match I painted a left-handed guitar on one side and right-handed guitar on the other.
I’ve always wanted to do an Elvis paint job, so I was really happy when I found out what I was going to be working on.
The job took about a week to complete. To make it harder, after painting the first Elvis, I had to paint Elvis backwards on the other side so that the bags would match.
I really loved doing this paint job and want to say thanks to George for picking Hanson’s Custom Painting to do the job.
