Send in Your Custom Motorcycle Paint Pictures and Painting Advice
GoGoCycles invites our visitors to share pictures of their custom motorcycle paint job. Finding the right brand of custom paint for motorcycles is crucial and knowing the color and technique that you want for your bike is just as important.
The best way to decide is to see examples of painting techniques and results. Learn which paint gives the best shine, look at pictures of to determine which parts (if any) need powder coat paint and whether or not airbrushing is needed to get the look that you want.
Some motorcycle owners that they're ready for the "do it yourself" route after putting in some time at a workshop or reading through an instruction book. Some that I know were less than pleased with the results and had to take their bikes for a "do over" but then a couple turned out pretty good.
Most of the amateur painters came through the experience with a new respect for the shop techs that do that kind of stuff for a living after seeing how many hours and how much work goes into the job. PLUS, they learned that a can of House of Kolor paint isn't cheap. The labor is just a small part of the price and they saved very little money especially if they had to buy equipment.
My advice is to start by doing a little touch up paint and then paint a motorcycle helmet or two before jumping into an all over paint job.
Custom Motorcycle Paint Color
There's not a thing in the world with painting your motorcycle flat black, (although flat black but color choice is a matter of taste.
There's some really great stuff that can be done with black on black. Gunmetal gray with black looks pretty sharp, too. Bright colors and graphics can be real eye catchers, but never underestimate the beauty and elegance of a solid black paint job.
