Artsy Motorcycle Painting - Articles Surfing

However, it is not always that way. You can manage to paint your bike. In fact, if you are planning to do it in the near future, here are the things that you need to consider. First, the color of the motorcycle * what color do you want? There is such a wide variety of colors available in the motorcycle society.

Colors can influence the bikes durability. Pearl*s, candy's and lacquer reds have short life spans. Nevertheless, if you like your bike to be ultra-violet, gasoline and acid rain resistant, you can use paints with modern acrylic urethane content. These coatings are costly but you can rely on their efficiency. The brilliant hue, sparkle and feel of newly painted bike cannot be overemphasized. If you want variations, you can try two-tones and the likes. Just bear in mind that the use right and modern materials pays off.

After choosing the color for your bike, you have the choice whether to dismantle the bike or not. Tearing down for paint is an innate passion of bikers. Most pro painters do not remove the motorcycle parts. However, it is better if you let the experts do *expert removal* of hard to remove parts. The aim is to get paint around all the edges of the motorcycle parts. Most bike painters have a variety of fixtures to hold parts so they can be easily worked on. In fact, in time these bike painters develop a skill to work on these challenging parts.

As I have said before, you can be your bike's very own painter. Nonetheless, you can entrust the painting to those who understand how much your bike means to you * like some expert biker/painter. They exude a certain bond with the bike. Thus, they will not let any biker down. This is because they do not want to feel the same frustration.

It is time to color the bike. But first, remove the uglies * cracks, dents, flaws and repairs. Painter may not have ample time to look into them so you got to have the initiative. After removing the uglies, clean and dry the entire bike. The temperature must also be kept warm for the primer's advantage.

The number of coats can be of significance. Three or four coats are sufficient. Just remember the three important things * clean, dry and more primer!

Invade the motorcyclists* crowd and stun them with your newly painted bike.
