In a sea of off the shelf replicas and corporate looks, the only thing that a racer can call their own is their helmet design. BKD Speedpaint can help you turn that vision into a reality. whether it is a typical kart racer style or something completely off the wall, we can help make your dream a reality. BKD Speedpaint prides itself in being multi styled, and can provide a different take on helmet painting.
BKD Speedpaint started as an idea and a “what if?” by 2 brothers in their teens after meeting a great pin striper at a sidecar rally in Maine in the 1990’s. Bill and Kevin were both into art and fine model making and this was a task that could marry the love of art with the passion for motorcycles.
They started practicing on all of the helmets around the house and then when they ran out, started convincing friends to let them experiment. This led to work around the Ottawa area and eventually setting up booths at the Toronto International Motorcycle show. Bill and Kevin constantly strived to improve the product as well as the diversity of styles they could offer… BKD Speedpaint started getting heavily involved in the Canadian Roadracing Scene in 2000, working with Jeff Williams, Mike Taylor and a young up and comer named Jordan Szoke. To this day, BKD Speedpaint is still working with Jordan to define his helmet look.
BKD Speedpaint has worked with Shoei to produce a Jordan Szoke replica and has also been instrumental in working with other racers to define their brand.
BKD Speedpaint has been run by Kevin for the past 14 years, creating new and evolved designs for both returning and new clients. I've had the pleasure of working with some great new teams and great local and distance clients even on my own. My love for motorcycles started me in the game but working with so many great Kart and Car racers has also been a blast.. Thanks everyone for your patronage.
