Custom Paint Your Ride!

Still love your bike but want a different look? Many people get tired of seeing their bikes blend in and look like all the other factory painted bikes. Let's think in terms of a new paint job...not a new bike. Here are some points when considering a custom paint job for your wheels:

Why should I repaint my motorcycle?
Answer - Most people are proud of their bikes. The average motorcycle costs over $10,000. It's not a lighthearted purchase but rather a very important one. So why have your dream look like many of the other dreams out there? Your ride should reflect who you are and what makes you different from everyone else.

Why not spend the money on better wheels or chrome parts?
Answer - Because the paint is the most noticeable thing on a bike. You can have two identical motorcycles fresh off the dealer floor. One has custom wheels and lots of chrome parts. The other has stock wheels but has wild custom paint. Which bike will stand out more and be noticed? Which bike better reflects the person riding it?

Will custom paint devalue my bike?
Answer - Usually not, but it does depend on the paint scheme you choose. If you plan on selling your bike, you should design a paint job that will make your bike uniquely yours yet have a wide appeal to others. When it's time to sell, the paint design will be one of the strongest selling points and who knows...that could mean MORE MONEY for the next bike!

But doesn't custom paint cost a lot?
Answer - Not necessarily. Most custom painters will design the paint with the customer's budget in mind. Sometimes less is more! Effective designs can make a big difference in the way a motorcycle looks. You need to do your research starting with a design. Next, stay open minded as you get quotes from the custom painters in your area. They may have suggestions you didn't realize were an option. Usually 2 heads, 3 or even 4 heads are better than one. Create a budget, have a design in mind and then go shopping for the best deal you can get! bikes blend in and look like all the other factory painted bikes.
