A 2007 Dyna Super Glide Harley-Davidson motorcycle, custom painted with products donated by PPG Industries’ automotive refinish business, was raffled during the SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference, June 18-24 in Kansas City, Mo.
The raffle was a fund-raiser for SkillsUSA, a national nonprofit organization serving teachers as well as high school and college students preparing for careers in trade, technical and skilled service occupations. The deluxe motorcycle was donated by Harley-Davidson and custom painted by Justin Barnes of JB Grafix, known for his appearances on the Discovery Channel’s “American Chopper” television show.
Barnes designed the paint scheme and painted the chopper on-site in the collision repair contest area during the SkillsUSA Conference, in which nearly 14,000 people participated, including more than 5,000 career and technical education students. The fabulous design featured “O So Orange” paint by PPG formulated with the premium Global Refinish System. The job was clearcoated with the newest addition to the line of Vibrance Collection custom finishes, VC5200 Custom Clear. Introduced earlier this year, VC5200 is specially designed to complement PPG’s custom offering and to achieve optimum performance when applying graphics.
Barnes has been using PPG products exclusively since 2004, when he painted the I-Robot bike Will Smith rode at the premiere of the film
