Imagine if you will if everyone had bought the same big motorcycle in the same color and everyone all of a sudden decided to ride their motorcycle at the same time on the same day in the same part of town. Basically it would look like there was a huge road show happening and a lot of people would just stop and gawk at all the bikes going down the road and it would be a big spectacle for everyone involved. With respect to each person though it would be the craziest time ever not only for the fact that there are so many big bikes on road at the same time but every rider will have a hell of a time trying to figure out which bike was theirs even with different number plates.
I know that somewhere in the human psyche the reason most people buy big bikes like Harley’s and Triumphs and Indians is to have a bike that is unique and brings a little bit of their own personality out as well as make a dull boring looking bike look completely new and completely stand out from the rest of the pack.
Since a paint job generally consists of painting the fuel tank, rear fenders and front fenders just changing color or adding graphic to the existing base can completely change the entire bike.
There is a very important point I would like to touch upon which is a good paint job will cost you a good amount of money. It doesn’t really depend on what kind of paint is used but the time it takes to lay down the graphics as well as the effort and time the artist takes to actually complete the work.
There is a saying in the tattoo industry:
“A cheap tattoo ain’t good and a Good tattoo ain’t Cheap”
This holds good even for paint jobs…
“A Cheap paint job ain’t good and a good paint job ain’t cheap”
