Thanks for visiting our site. It's crazy to think I've been pinstriping for over 30 years. It tall started when I was a kid. My dad Bill Kite, was an incredibly talented sign painter / pinstriper and ran Kite Signs in Champaign, IL for about 40 years. I remember watching him for hours as he hand painted truck doors, race cars and signs. I spent my early years sweeping the floor and coating out 4×8 plywood sheets. As the years passed, I picked up a brush and started butchering everything I touched! It was a very slow learning curve, but thanks to my dad and a lot of drive, I finally started getting the hang of it. While working at the shop I also learned of the growing motorcycle rally buisness. All the while helping to raise three wonderful kids, Brian, Chris and Danielle. It was a great way to meet fun people and make a few bucks on the side. I spent my weekends pinstriping at Midwest Gold Wing rallies. Eventually taking over and learning how to run a business, treat people with respect and create a quality product I could be proud of. I started losing interest in the sign business after the computer and plotter took over the art of hand lettering. And so I now do nothing but travel the country pinstriping at our nations motorcycle rallies with my wife, partner and best friend Gina. Spending our winters in Florida, playing golf, riding our Harley and doing a little painting here and there. Thanks again, we hope to see you somewhere down the road.
