are you a painter? my 6 hunnerd needs paint but if I do it I want it spectacular something stock but Chip Foose or at the least factory quality..

my favorite scheme is the gold but I know its too elaborate unless I have the graphics kit which I can't find



the only other paint I really like is the blue/black (last pic)like the 02 busa or the blk/charcoal/purple like this one and I could replace the yellow with a chrome GSXR or something like that..




I dunno for myself I don't really like custom paint jobs I dont know why I just like the stock paint jobs..

how are you going to do yours?

yeah i do alot of painting here locally...ive done at least two dozen bikes i would say...from solids to wild and crazy..lol me though i have a soft spot for nice clean solid color bikes...this bike will be a super dark blue..or black...with gold wheels, black frame ,swing arm , and front end bits...i will probably go with some nice gold "r" decals and that will be it for decals..

how hard do you think the blue/black/silver would be?

I don't even know how one would start as far as which color is base and so on?

Do a solid colour, then a quality vinal sticker over top of it followed by a nice clear. It will last for years! Much less expensive then painitinng it in different colours, HOnda has been doing it for decades!

yeah thats a good way to do it. the only thing i dont like about vinyl is that the color is a little bit muted on the vinyl and the clear doesnt always cure that..

Re: My practically free 97 750! (build thread)

Why not got to a vehicle wrapping firm and get the panels wrapped. Its an idea I have been toying with for a while. My mate has some real carbon wrap and he keeps bugging me to do it all I do is pay the cost of materials and this stuff isn't cheap about 75 per metre.

looks as good as a powder coating what kind of paint and prep? did you use an etching primer or? think it will hold up as good as a powder coating?

someone polished part of my frame and swingarm and it ruined the look IMO, I like the stock look much better if its clean, thought about powder coating every thing but its spendy

yea its nice to see someone do the frame offs when required, I would have done the same but its the only bike I have to ride so I don't like to have it apart for more than a week or so however I am thinking about biting the bullet over the winter?
