We do many small projects and custom touches on our theme bikes
that we would like to showcase on this page. From simple custom
stator covers to chrome plating and powdercoat services, we can
turn your bike into a dream ride!
Sportbike body panels have become more complicated in recent years. 20 years ago the average sportbike had from 5 to 9
pieces to paint. Today's sportbikes break down into multiple pieces, and I mean multiple. A Yamaha R1 has 23 painted parts (not
including the mirrors). A 2009 GSXR 1000 has 29 painted pieces, also not including the mirrors.
Why is this important information? To get a quality paint job, each piece must be removed from its attaching parts, completely
stripped of fasteners, clips and grommets, decals removed, and the part prepped for paint. Then each piece needs a separate jig
to hold it while painting. With so many pieces, even averaging one hour per piece, thats still 29 hours times $75 per hour, and
you haven't even figured materials, or the time it takes to remove the parts from the bike and replace them after painting. Below
are some pics of a GSXR before the parts were reassembled and put back on the bike. This should give you a better idea of what
it takes to paint a newer style sportbike.
