Colormania custom paint brand was
founded in 1991 as a family owned
and operated business. Initially we were only 3 people working out of a small shop in Palmdale California, but within just
two years we got the attention of who is who of Movie, Radio, Sport & Motor-sport personalities & our business
grew rapidly to satisfy even faster growing demand. Please visit our achievement page.
loyal customers were sending their motorcycle parts from around the world for custom painting, even motorcycle frames were
being sent for our molding work from as far as France!
World famous bike builders such as Johnny Peg and many others
trust their special projects to team of Colormania, when it comes to frame molding and painting, even well known custom
car and bike manufacturers such as Vinni Bergman who own and operate their own custom paint business, trust their personal and extra ordinary custom paint projects to Colormania.
By 1996, the international demand
for our custom paint sets for Harley-Davidson motorcycles continued to grow beyond our expansion capability, especially after
becoming the exclusive supplier of custom paint sets to Biker's Dream Superstores and
their chain of nationwide dealers. In 1997 we responded by revolutionizing the custom painting industry; by creating for the first time in the history a process to successfully
mass produce motorcycle art & custom paint sets for motorcycles.
in addition to Biker's Dream Superstores, many American motorcycle manufacturers such
as CMC, Titan, Ultra
& American Eagle, many H-D dealers joined Colormania dealer network.
In 1999 Colormania makes history again by successfully passing all Harley-Davidson Motor Companies
rigorous quality testing and becomes an OE (Original Equipment) supplier to the Milwaukee
based American legend & its global dealer network.
In 2001, despite Colormania's ability to
custom paint 100s of bikes each month, H-D dealer's demand became so high that Colormania products would sell out within
just hours of each launch (see photo on the right) and the motor company had to utilize a lottery
system to fairly distribute Colormania custom paint sets among its over 600 dealers. Each Colormania paint set design
was produced in a limited production run of 150 -200 bikes, but the usual orders for each design reached between 400
- 500 units!
2001, Colormania expanded to 6 facilities in the USA and Mexico with
a staff of almost 500 team members, custom painting close to 2700 Harley-Davidson parts
per month (900 Motorcycles). Colormania became the largest producer of custom paint in the world & history. Since 1991 we have custom painted more than 18000 motorcycles & our
clients have won too many local and international bike shows to list here. We have custom painted 1000s of Harley-Davidson motorcycles for the Motor Company including their CVO flagship
motorcycles. We are currently
in the process of downsizing due to ever tightening environmental laws in CA which drastically limit the use of hazardous
materials used by all custom painters. The use of high VOC materials and solvent based pearl and metallic colors is no longer
permitted. In fact we believe no custom painter is able to maintain a totally legal operation in this state anymore! As the
result of ever tightening laws limiting our ability to use hazardous materials needed for creating custom paint jobs; we were
forced to close all our production facilities in CA and to move our paint operations to the Mexican side of the border where
we can easily stay in compliance with their local laws. Our quality and craftsmanship has not suffered as many quality American
products are produced there such as Ford, Chrysler, GM and countless other top American brands. We have even produced OEM
Harley-Davidson Motor Co. products in Mexico successfully.
