This is Mike Burke’s 1985 BMW K100 with our Blue-Black Flame wrap applied on it. Mike is a very meticulous guy who wanted a different look for his BMW. He contacted us with a special request flame wrap that we had to design for him. Each panel of this BMW was measured by Mike & he told us which sheet of ours that he wanted to use. With a bit of time and effort we edited the sheets to meet his requirements & provided proofs prior to production just to be sure he was getting what he wanted.

Mike’s Personal Comments:
First I would like to thanks the staff of Power Sports Wraps for the time they spent to altering the standard pattern to fit the specific dimensions of my vehicle. I also must confess that I did not install the graphic on the upper fairing, I paid a professional for that part as I had been working on this for 2 weeks and simply wanted it to be finished. Except for the gas tank, I installed the graphic without assistance on the rest of the bike. With that experience in mind, I do not recommend trying to do this alone unless the parts are securely held during the application. Patients is a requirement as it can take several hours to complete a single piece depending on the complexity of the part being covered. My bike had some white spray paint on a few of the surfaces. This created an adhesion problem. After encountering this issue, I used a green scrubbing pad and removed some of the white paint. This seems t o have reduced the tendency of the vinyl to lift the paint off the surface during the application process. Four pieces of black vinyl have been installed on what will be the horizontal surfaces. Be careful with these inside angles, if the vinyl is stretched too much, it may not adhere to the surface, creating the appearance of a bubble. It took me about 12 tries to figure out how to cover this area properly, (I’m probably just a slow learner).The front fender had its own challenge. I ended up with excessive vinyl overlapping near the midpoint of the fender. I decided to solve this by cutting and overlapping where the front fork would hide the fix. Then I removed the patterned vinyl and covered the area with black vinyl.Since I was working alone, I chose to remove the backing of the vinyl sheet only as it became necessary during the application.
The gas tank was also a problem. Perhaps if I had more helpers, (or more experience), it would have turned out differently. I had to make a cut and overlap on the side of the tank. Not very noticeable in the pic, but I may cover it with a narrow piece of black eventually.
I did try using the black vinyl for the mirrors, but in the end decided to go with a can of spray paint and some rubbing compound. Eleven separate parts were covered with vinyl, and there are some small defects in the surface, (even of the piece I paid for), but none of the defects are obvious to the casual observer. In fact, the worst are in places not visible to a standing observer. I am quite pleased with the results. Mike Burke
Special thanks to Brian Large for these great pictures of his custom 1997 Kawasaki Vulcan Classic 1500cc vinyl flame wrap. Brian contacted us over the winter & was so impressed with the wrapping film he purchased from us for his wife’s bike that he decided to wrap his Kawasaki in our Natural flames. Just look at his gas tank & this will give you an idea of how well our products conform to the most curved surfaces of a motorcycle. If you have a cruiser & are looking to change up the look give us a call… we can help.

In the illustration of the tank you can see what the customer started with.
THIS IS HOW TO DO IT:
Take a 1/4″ roll of strip and outline the area you would like to cover with the wrapping film. Make sure to exceed the are you would like to cover by a minimum of 3/16″ due to shrink back.
Next apply the wrap over top of the stripe exceeding the edge by over 1″. Now you can see where the stripe is through the film by looking at the defined edge of the 1/4″ strip under the wrap.
Just take a razor blade & carefully cut to the edge of the stripe around the entire border. Peel excess film and zing…. you have the flames cut to shape on the surface of the tank or fender.
Now if you would like you can peel the 1/4″ strip and relay it again over the wrapping film by just a hair or you can leave what you did and start representing for PowerSportsWraps.com.
Just think how much you just saved by doing it your self…

Yes, you can wrap a Harley Davidson with our vinyl wrap products, chances are we can save you $ Thousands. This bike was done for under $300.00. Imagine the possibilities with your bike.
These pictures were submitted to us by one of our very happy customers Sheldon P. He wanted a custom flame effect on his Harley Davidson but wanted to keep the price to fit his budget. After some discussion we assisted Sheldon by giving him some application advice & tips so he would have an idea on how to apply the material. One point was to keep the traditional Harley look & feel but give the bike some custom flame effects. We helped him appreciate that you can use pinstripe to outline your warp and cut the material to the edge of the stripe giving you a nice finished even edge. This way you do not have to cover the complete panel or you can use it as a stopping point and pick up on the other side of the stripe if you need to. (more on that point in a later blog post)
Sheldon Had these comments: You called me about two weeks ago to see if I had ordered my flames going the right direction. Here’s some before and after shots so you can judge for yourself.
The pin stripe tape trick worked beautifully and gave me a perfect cut line for each panel. I started with the right tank side since it was the easiest to get to. I had some wrinkles (which I pulled out), but cut some wedges to get it to lay flat over the rounded tank. Then I did the second tank side. This time I heated the material and was able to perfectly stretch it over the rounded tank side – no wrinkles, no seams, a perfect fit! I figured out that you can get pretty aggressive with this material on weird shapes. It turned out so well that several of my friends asked me for the link to your site. I even offered to help them apply it. Thanks for a great product and an awesome result!
I am a happy camper!

Oh my goodness your bike’s on fire!!! This Kawasaki Z1000 was originally just a Red machine like every other Z 1000. Jeremy contacted us with his idea and after a bit of discussion and measuring he purchased a custom made Real Flame “do it your self” vinyl wrap just for his bike. His Kawasaki was transformed into one of the hottest looking naked street bikes on the road. These pictures are just a sample of what we can do for you for a fraction of the price of a custom air brush paint job & the cool thing is if you ever want to change the look of the bike you can remove the material will little to no left over adhesive.
JEREMY’S COMMENTS: When I first had thoughts of getting a custom paint job on my bike. I had no idea of the prices they would cost…. then I found powersportswraps.com and happen to find the exact design I wanted! and for WAY LESS then a paintjob! its rare, custom and looks real sharp now. I had no idea how good it would look… as each vinyl was installed I was eager to install the next….. once completed I took pictures and as you look at it on the website, I must say the pictures still dont do it justice!
thanx powersportswrap, pete I will tell everyone who wants custom cool looks on their bikes and other toys!
