Bike Painting Done

Finished the bike last night.. took off the masking and touched up a few corners this morning

decided to spray the engine and wheels as well.. hubs, spokes and all..

and heres the tank panel and speedometer


i expect all the paint on the chrome and engine parts to peel off eventually.. at which point, i'l give it for a professional paint and powder-coating job.. where they'l take the bike apart .. sand and prime each component before painting or powdercoating :) ..
anyway thats sometime in the future.. for now, i'm looking forward to the drive tomorrow or over the weekend.. :)


Update:

people in the comments have been asking baout the paint, so here it is

Bosny No.4 Flat Black

heres the bike in better lighting

chaitanyak said...

no clue.. i did this myself.. spent around Rs800 on the paint cans.. it scratches off easily so you need to get some kind of protective coating done. that said mine has lasted a year now

chaitanyak said...

Hi Gauti, I got the paints in R T Nagar(its the area near mekhri circle) on CBI main road. Its a fairly prominent shop selling all kinds of paints.The owner can give you detailed instructions if you ask him. Basically clean the bike thoroughly. Sanding it down with sandpaper is a good idea..especialy all the logos etc.. Then mask all the areas you don't want the paint to touch (seats, disc break, lights, etc) I used newspaper and masking tape ..don't use ordinary sticking tape..leaves gum marks.. Pain to remove. Masking tape is easy to use and neater.Best of luck
