Custom Motorcycle Paint Job Excellence
Custom Design Pride
So, you’ve got your bike and you want it to be the envy of all your friends. Well, a custom motorcycle paint job is exactly what you need for that extra visual kick. A custom design can turn even the most worn paint job into a sharp and eye pleasing masterpiece that will turn heads for you in a whole new way. Custom motorcycle paint is not only worth the money but also gives you a new level of pride for your bike that can’t be matched.
Worth the Price
A custom motorcycle paint job can cost anything from around $2000 to $6000 and up, depending on the quality and complexity of the design, but if you’re willing to put up the money then you know it will be worth it in the end. If you’re looking to get the job done by a professional, then the possibilities are only limited by time restraints and the money flow. An artist can create just about anything you can think of, and even a few things you don’t.
The great thing about giving someone else artistic licence is the small, or large, details that you may overlook or think won’t quite blend very well. A professional artist also brings experience to a custom motorcycle paint job that almost guarantees success and satisfaction with his or her work. So, if you’re inexperienced with custom motorcycle paint, or you just don’t have the time, I suggest seeking out a professional. There is very little chance of disappointment and it rarely takes more than a few days.
A Solo Venture
Maybe you do have the time, money, and/or experience to create a custom motorcycle paint job all by yourself. If this is the case, you are in for a fulfilling and somewhat time intensive project that will no doubt produce a very unique look you can be proud of. When done correctly and properly maintained, a custom motorcycle paint job will last as long as you have the bike, although it will require a few touch ups now and then.
A custom paint job requires, of course, the tools necessary to complete the job, and the materials essential to start it. If you do not have either, then you can expect to spend a pretty penny. Unfortunately without the proper equipment, prices can easily run into the high thousands. I personally suggest seeking out a custom shop or acquaintance who has not only the tools and experience, but also access to higher grade materials that you may not be able to find in stores.
Overall a professional artist is the best way to go when looking for a custom motorcycle paint job. Although painting your bike can be a do-it-yourself project, it is far more practical to have it done professionally and save yourself the money, time, and energy it would take. So, if you do decide to have your bike painted, check your area for custom shops and go for it. I’m sure you will be satisfied with what your bike can become with a little paint.
