PostSubject: Custom Paint job for Suzuki C800   Sat Apr 14, 2012 8:26 pm

Next year (gotta save my pennies) I want to get an air brushed custom paint job and was wondering if anyone knows of a paint shop that they recommend for this type of work. I know this is going to be expensive so I will research any recommendations thoroughly.
This is the type of work that I am looking at having done but it would have to be a one off job on the tank and all panels.

Classy airbrushing like that is probably one of the most desirable mods to any cruiser. Top artists charge but that's to be expected because you want it to look good! Be ready for the admiring crowds when it's done! That was my late dad's line of work - a real talent if you can do it. Best of luck with your search.

Be good to see that once you get it done mate, my Medusa was done when I bought the bike ... I have tried to find the company who did it ( Bodybright Cosmetics ) since as I wanted the top of the panniers matching to the blue marbled paint on the tins but I can't find them.

Mick your tank was what made me jealous when you joined, it looks bloody fabulous. If I can get something like that I would be well happy.

Missus insisted I had a picture of her Mother on the tank .... this was the nearest I could get. It's pretty close though, only difference is that Medusa's still got all her teeth !

Thanks for the comments guys ..... I'll see if I can put a higher resolution images up soon coz that grainy one off my phone really doesn't do the thing justice. As with all these types of things, the devil is in the detail and the guy who's done it really has put some time / effort in. I can only wonder how much it was for the whole job as not only has the top of the tank been custom painted but also all the blue on the sides of it and on the mudguards and side panels has been done in a bright blue marble effect, which really looks nice, especially when the sun's on it. I'll get the pictures taken / posted when I get chance

Cheers .... Mick

Well, managed to get some shots in the limited Yorkshire sunshine so ....



here's the tank in more detail, there's a fair amount of greeny/gold highlights that don't show up very well on the pic but you can notice them if you enlarge the picture and look at the side of the Medusa's face and on the snake's necks ( on the right side as you look at the picture ). This gives some idea of the detail involved



and here's the side of the tank complete with Medusa lettering ( bit cheesy I think but it's staying on there ! )



Here's the left hand side panel which shows the marbled finish on the paint I mentioned



and finally, the front mudguard ( complete with eagle ) which again shows the blue marbling.



The rear mudguard is done the same as the front which is why I'd like to get the tops of the panniers done to match. Think that would just finish it off. Anyway, hope you like the pics

Cheers ...... Mick
