"When Joe Bell became my one-and-only painter in the summer of 2004 his reputation of being a technical master had preceded him. But I was still surprised when I opened the first box and such beauty sprung forth.
As I worked with JB over time he continually surprised me.
The surprise first was JB's uncanny ability to interpret the paint wishes he is given and to make them come alive in real living color. Time after time JB nails it whether he's given super detailed instructions or we mail him a cordovan leather shoe as an example of just the right blend of brown and brick red for him to color match.
The other surprise is that unlike so many "artistes" Joe Bell knows what "customer service" means… calls and emails are returned and questions are answered in a timely way. He understands business and that these bikes, and his hard work that covers them, are very important to their owners and shows real respect for that.
For these and so many other reasons JB is the only painter I've used for the past 12 years. He will be my painter until we close the doors for the last time and go for a ride.
Thanks JB." —Dave Kirk
