That’s probably both the most sophisticated and best-executed home frame paint job I’ve ever seen. It would fit right in at NAHBS. I gather this isn’t your first paint rodeo.

Nice! :thumbup: Is it a 650c frame? Looks better than the 650c B'twin I used to have.

Thank you all. This was actually my first paint job. There are definitely some flaws but overall happy with the result.

The frame is actually a 700c but it is a small womans frame 48cm.

Very cool, what kind of equipment did you use? Where did you source the stencils?

Very cool.
Years ago, when Harleys were hard to get, my brother's friend bought a Japanese cruiser bike. He had it repainted. On the gas tank he put "Hardley Davidson".

Hardley Davidson. Hie hie.

In terms of equipment. I had the logo made by carstickers.com. It was $25 including shipping.

Paint was from spraybike.us.
Primer, silver, red, black and transparent finish with tax and shipping was $104.

The rest were goggles and masks, masking tape and a big piece of plastic to build a painting chamber in the garage. I left the garage door open for ventilation and only painted for small periods of (pretty toxic!) time with goggles, masks and gloves. I wore my oldest clothes and threw it away afterwards Image

Mighty impressive for $129. Congrats! I just wish spraybike had more iconic bike colors, like Cannondale Green, Bianchi Celeste etc.

Frommel this is wonderful, plus you win the Dad Of The Year award.
I am preparing a paint job and may write with some questions.

That's great, nice paint job, funny too. Are there meant to be zertz inserts in that fork?
