We work with several specialist motorcycle paintwork companies. Who we use depends on what you are looking for.
Dream Machine are generally where we would go for straight forward race replica paint schemes where to keep costs as low as they can, vinyls (printed if required) would be used for the graphics and then lacquered in. As with any service, you tend to get what you pay for.
For the more discerning, we also work with some exceptionally talented guys that only use paint and airbrush all of the graphics within the design. In the case of airbrush work, total personalisation is available. Again, tell us what you are looking for and we can discuss this with the painter to ensure you get exactly what you want.
Airbrush work is obviously very time consuming and comes at a cost. The choice is yours. Give us a call on 01508 471919 or better come in with your design and we will find the best course of action for you.
An Example of Paintwork - A Martini Race Replica paint job in full paint (ie airbrushed decals) with wheels that have been powdercoated in gold. The picture does not do ths bike justice. It is absolutely stunning in the flesh!!
OK so it's not exactly paint but today's vinyls are so much more flexible and allow for complete transformations without the use of paint. The turnaround time for vinyl is also a lot shorter than for paintwork.
An additional advantage to motorcycle wrapping is that it is completely reversible. If you get fed up with the design or if you want to return the bike to standard at point of onward sale then this is all possible.
There are limitations as to what can be done with vinyl but if you can give us an idea of what you are looking to achieve we will be happy to advise what we think woud be the best method for you.
Costings vary on the amount of detail required and also the type of vinyl used, generally however a good saving over the cost of paint can generally be had.
Here are a couple of pictures showing the original Limited Edition Ducati 1299S Anniversario and our Wrappers interpretation of the same design on a 959 Panigale. Wheels in this case were left black but could also have been painted or better still for durability - powdercoated.
A pretty good likeness by anyone's standards.
We have wrapped a standard Ducati Multistrada to look like a Pikes Peak, and personalised several bikes to customer designs. The possibilities are endless.
Give us a call to discuss motorcycle wrapping and how you would like your next bike to look.
