Welcome to Street Kustom - OVER 40 YEARS OF CUSTOM PAINTWORK
The complete customised paint service from Ken Rothery.

Welcome to STREET KUSTOM, my company which allows me to indulge my passion for custom painting! I have been involved in custom motorcycle painting and vehcile spraying since the early 70's. I believe that custom work of any kind should be totally unique - a one off that provides the owner with as much pride and satifaction as it does for me to create.

As part of my custom paint services I am happy to custom fit parts such as tanks, guards, oil tanks, larger wheels, fabrication of one off items or altering existing parts to fit, including lathe work. I welcome paintwork of any kind from simple colouring to intricate designs and will always aim to create a solution to fit your budget and all my work is personally guaranteed.

So if you are looking to personalise your motorcycle or vehicle with some custom painting or modifications, please take a look through my website, all the images you see are examples of my own work. If you are inspired with what can be done and have some ideas you would like to discuss, then please don't hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to give you an idea of costs - it may be cheaper than you think! You can take a look through a small selection of some of my work on the Gallery page.

Unique and passionate commitment to high standards, a tribute to The Few...

I pride myself on going that little bit further to help create unique and innovative designs. One of my recent projects was a motorcycle custom paint job based on a war-time theme of 'The Few'. Based on initial ideas from the client I reworked existing illustrations from the art world into an exceptional theme across the whole motorcycle. The finished bike continues to turn heads for the owner, including ex-wartime pilots and has been described as a 'moving piece of art' in correspondence from HRH Prince of Wales. Read more...

The origins of Street Kustom...
(or a very brief history of Ken Rothery)

I started custom painting in the early 70s mainly because I could not afford to pay someone else to do it for me and there was not that many people doing custom painting in the UK. I was one of the first customers of Carlbrook cars who first imported custom paint airbrushes [METALFLAKE] and other accessories from the USA.

I soon realised that I needed to learn to spray properly so I trained as a motor vehicle spray painter and worked for different bodyshops including FORD & MERCEDES. During the 80s I had my own custom paint shop in Reading working on Bikes and scooters, many of which were featured in magazines and won shows across the country.

In the 90s I ran a paint shop for Surrey Harley Davidson in Dorking before being asked to join RMD at Reading. There I carried out fabrication and servicing and also learnt how to build the big Harley motors which RMD raced in the Super Twins class.

In 2010 I started STREET KUSTOM and now work on both simple spray work as well as unique custom commisions.
