Custom paint!

I couldn't find another forum that seemed more appropriate to share these pics of the custom painted fenders on my cruiser, so I'm posting them here. This bike will probably be leaving me soon. I'll miss it because it's so darned pretty, but as fun as it was to work on, it's just not my style for riding. I'd love to do this again to another bike though (this was my first!). And no welding required.







Bike as it came to me:

Great job...you could make $ doing this with the right people. Or at least that is my opinion, 2-cents.
the ladies will go ga-ga over it would be my guess.

I did think about doing the whole bike (or at least the chain guard) but in the end decided it would be overkill.

Great job - just a hint on the fenders. Most people seem to think "overkill" should be my new nickname!

Thanks! I think this is actually easier, because people focus on the color and design and not how smooth the clear coat is.
