Velonews did a piece on Cavendish's fighter pilot bike during the Tour. I know Sastre's yellow S3 was pre-painted before the tour... Cancellara was a shoe-in for the opening Time Trial, but look at how fast these mechanics do wheel changes (Silence Lotto not included). Throwing some decals on is barely 20 minutes of work.
As for the podium jerseys, those are sort of one size fits all/premade. Notice they zip in the back so they can be awarded more easily, and Cavendish looked like a little kid when he was wearing Green, so they're definitely not fitted based on the rider.
