how to make my designs, reality

i need ideas on how to make these ideas reality. I'm having a lot of difficulty with figuring out the procedure to use to make these designs work on real frames i already have. any pointers would be helpful. thanks
(i think i attached these correctly)

It's the paint you are wondering about? Find a book on painting hot rods, motor bikes. There are videos you can rent also, whole boards devoted to that stuff.

I already have the frames so these drawings are just representations of the frames the important part is the design. i just want pointers as to how i could paint a frame and make it look like these designs, particuarly the orange/yellow one. how can i accomplish the fading affect? what equipment would i need? etc. i posted this pole out of sheer curiousety. thanks
