Question any painters?

does anyone here do auto/cycle painting at home on the side? i realyy need to get my bike painted so i can put it back together and ride! 90% of the prep sanding etc.. is done and i have the supplies, i just need someone w/ a big heart to do the painting that could do it real cheap. but still take pride in the work that needs to be done. :eh: probably a longshot but i thought i would inquire anyways. paint scheme that i want is like the 1992 suzuki 1100, 4 colors. bike pic before sanding is the one in the avatar.

You really think you can do this on the cheap? Multiple layers of tape-out and block sanding multiple layers of clear to eliminate an edge between colors. Not to mention remounting the parts to the bike before laying out the graphics to ensure the lines follow each other properly...

Not saying it doesn't look great, but maybe you should consider painting the bike solid white, then adding a decal kit. Would definately cut the cost, and if you clear coat over the decals it would look great and last forever.

That is a lot of fookin work. Something like this isn't cheap. Paint it in one solid colors and get it over with. If it is a show bike then go for it but if you are riding it then don't do it.
