Swap’s Stocking Stuffers | Piston Bones Graphics
Price: $195 (minis); $225 (big bikes)
Custom graphics companies seem to be a dime a dozen these days: all someone needs is a digital printer and some garage space and boom, 762 Graphix is born! In all reality, it takes more than daddy’s credit card and an unoriginal name that includes your racing number to build a successful graphics company. Piston Bones has been in business for over three years now and is a full-service graphics and customization shop in Corona, California. We teamed up with them on the Suzuki RM250 that Cedric Soubeyras raced at this year’s Red Bull Straight Rhythm, and we were super-impressed with the job they did on the Bill’s Pipes project bike.
Piston Bones claims a 3-5 business-day turnaround for a custom graphics kit, but because we happened to call at just the right time, we ordered this kit for a 2018 Kawasaki KX85 and took delivery of it the very next day. You could be lucky, too! We were very impressed with the ease of the order: we simply told the crew (they have two full-time graphics designers in house) what logos we wanted, and where, and we were sent a proof to approve in short order. The design itself for our little Kawasaki is clean and eye-catching, and we didn’t change a thing from the first design we were sent.
Installing the graphics was a breeze, and we are very impressed with Piston Bones’ patterns as they fit perfectly. The vinyl itself is pliable and sticks great. We used a heat gun to soften the pieces up and then “cook” the edges down once they were applied as it was raining and in the 40s when we did the installation. Again, we are really happy with the look, quality, and fitment of the Piston Bones kit!
