    Sorry but that would not be going on a bike, the beak and tank cover need to be joined up and hung on the living room wall (suitably lit) as a bit of art .

    If you're ever contemplating painting something that'll make you never want to paint anything ever again ever, buy a KTM 1290 Superduke, strip the wheels out and paint them like these.
    There are SIXTEEN hours masking alone in these wheels

    They do look pretty cool though

    Chris - just read this thread from start to finish; amazing work, you are a true craftsman!

    How the hell did you learn to do all of this? I can fully appreciate that the vast majority of the work is in the preparation. What I can't work out for the life of me is how you do the masking to paint letters with lots of compound curves, such as this:



    As mentioned by others, it would be really good of you could produce a time-lapse video!

    I'm self taught, since leaving school I've had a circle of friends in the automotive refinishing trade, from commercials to cars and even kitchens!, I've just always been around it.
    As with all these things, the more time you spend doing it the better you get at it. I can't really tell you more than that, My paint jobs have developed in the last 5 years and so I guess they've got better. I've had the opportunity to experiment with different finishes and I'm asked for / in a position to offer more and more different styles and ideas. It's enormously satisfying but massively time consuming.

    Thank you for your kind comments, they're very much appreciated!
