So Im getting myself a custom built bike for my 50th next yea, probably WindyMilla/Sarto, (I know, bbboring) and am considering an "homage" to the movie "garden state". Would this below wallpaper pattern translate into a bike frame, with the relatively low side on area? Is it doable, with the background as raw carbon?
Thanks in advance

anything is doable with the right amount of money to pay the painter

If you could get some one to make up an image and print if for you it done as a Hydrographics water transfer, you could then have the entire colour scheme as in your photo above. Idon't know the costs but it would be a pretty cool and unique frame when done.

this should give you some idea of whats possible, https://www.wickedcoatings.co.uk/catego ... t/cycling/

Thats stuff is insane. I think the builder said their painter could do it, I am more concerned if such a "busy" design woudl look good on the smaller surface area of the bike frame.

then go for a frame with lots of area, like a colnago concept, de rosa pininfarina

I saw a guy at the Philly Bike expo this past fall who is doing full vinyl wraps for frames. That might be an option as you might get sick of either Zach or that nasty paisley wall paper. And that comes from the WW who hails from and actually lives in the Garden State... just sayin... :thumbup:

I love the idea of a removable option but doubt this has yet ended up in Spain. Im just gonna wait and see what the frame painter comes up with as design mockup and see.
