Nothing is wrong with flat black at all, seems to be all the fad. The original ? is would you custom paint your bike if it only cost paint?

Does anybody have custom painted bikes they ride regularly?

yes, do what you want to do. I can hook you up with custom multi layered powder coating and Magic (through our shop) can do your custom airbrush etc.

I think so, I have airbrushed quite a bit. I really like seeing what art people have on their own stuff. You rarely see a harley without custom paint and rarely see someone riding a custom sport bike. If you paint it ride it if it gets messed up paint it again.
