Fresh paint on my replica bike

Ok, so here it is...finally finished. Ive beem a member of the forum for a while now, and ive had the bike for about a year now, and it was a stunt bike when i got it. My dad and i painted it ourselves, and i just took these pictures after final assembly. Hope you all like it.

Re: Fresh paint on my replica bike

Thank you both. Ill post some better pics sometime in the next few days, i was just in a hurry to get some before it got dark, so those ones arent to good. I still have a bit of polishing to do, but im happy with the way it came out. Its a replica of a bike (SP2) that Colin Edwards rode at Laguna Seca in 2002. Which is why i went with it...cuz i live near Laguna Seca, and its a 2002. kinda cool. But like i said in my first post...it was a stunt bike when i got it (Alex Flores was the previous owner if you know who he is) and it was in terrible shape...no where near road worthy. But, everything has been replaced and it is even better than it was brand new.

Re: Fresh paint on my replica bike

Very good job, I especially like the stars and stripes theme, you should get a lot of nods from Americans and Vets for that one. I am always amazed at what we can do with our bikes ourselves and how great it comes out when we are done. Satisfaction must be at an unreal level when you sit back and look at it in your garage.

I just painted it...I used some high temp gloss black engine paint from my local auto parts store. Its been on there for almost a year now, and it still looks great. I didnt even put any clear on it, and it still works like a mirror.
