Voodoo Daddy's paint plays with multiple variations of the same color the way Berg mixes metal hues. For this task, he turned to ace painter Zeak McPeak. The bodywork's overall color is satin black with gold flames fading to silver at the tips. To further soften the paint's appearance, a coat of satin clear was laid over the basecoat and flames. The pinstripes were done on top of the satin finish in glossy orange and black and, says Berg, highlight the effect around the flames. "I wanted it to look like a custom some guy had ridden to a rally and pinstriped." To Berg, pinstripes are like tattoos, inspiring constant additions. The color treatment didn't end with the bodywork, though. As previously mentioned, the headlight shell and other chrome parts were painted a high-gloss black. Berg also applied VHT Nite Shades paint to the brake light's exterior. (For those not familiar with this paint, it darkens the lens yet still allows light to shine through when the brake light comes on.) His original plan was to buff off portions of the paint to give the lens a pattern. About halfway through the process, he decided he didn't like the way it was turning out, so he sanded off the paint and painted the interior instead. Now the exterior of the lens has the same satin finish as the fender (thanks to the sanding) and the lens looks completely black when the ignition is off. The crowning portion of the pigment McPeak laid on Voodoo Daddy is the Woody Woodpecker-inspired variation of the VTX helmet logo, complete with an exhaust pipe hanging out of its mouth instead of a cigar.
