Design Chosen in Sharpe Razor Gun Custom Bike Sweepstakes

Sharpe announced that it has chosen a paint design from Justin Barnes of J.B. Grafix in Newburgh, New York, for the Razor Gun Custom Bike, which will be given away in a sweepstakes. Barnes’ design for the bike will feature many of his signature details.

“I’m usually all about doing metal-flake paint jobs, because they’re the most eye-catching,” said Barnes. “If you put a flaked-out bike in a sea of a thousand non-flaked-out bikes, it stands out from a mile away. Sharpe gave me free reign on the bike as far as design, but really wanted something that would stand out in a crowd.”

Barnes will use Sharpe’s Razor guns and PPG’s line of Hot Wheels paints, which he called “really vibrant,” on the Razor Gun bike. The paint scheme has a gold and silver metal-flake base, along with Hot Wheels Antifreeze Green. Barnes also has added some of his own unique touches.

“I’m a fan of black wheels, and we did that,” he said. “It makes a difference to the bike. Gives it a bit of edginess, makes it look a lot tougher.”

Barnes has appeared on the Discovery Channel’s “American Chopper,” and has painted a number of well-known motorcycles such as the POW-MIA bike, the Fire bike, the I-Robot bike, the Comanche, the Snap-On bike and many more. For the Razor Gun bike artwork, Barnes took his inspiration from both the bike itself and the fact that it will be given away in a sweepstakes.

“(The bike) has really great lines, which I focused on in the design,” Barnes said. “I also kept in mind that Sharpe will be giving this bike away, so I didn’t want it to be too theme-oriented. We’ve used a heavy graphic pattern, with traditional style flames and green metal flake. We’ve also used variegated gold leaf, which is treated with heat and acid so you get a marbling effect.”
