At it again

Post  alleycat on Wed May 28 2014, 17:36

I originally bought this bike for Paul as he was after a more reliable/economical bike than the ace but after picking it up and finding that it needed quite a bit of work / money thrown at it (which was the last thing he needed) I decided to take the hit for my brother from another mother and keep it.

After sorting the tyres, replacing all the downpipes/collectors, and the chain ... and the sprockets ... some bulbs ... misc nuts bolts and brackets ... misreading fuel gauge ... oh and some dodgy electrics ... and a few other bits I got the bike to the stage where it just needed some cosmetic TLC.

So after having painted the Cat last time and having done quite a bit of vinyl wrapping lately I decided to wrap this bike as i'm currently in the process of starting up a business (of which I think Pauls getting on board for) specializing in wrapping bikes (until I can get bigger premises then il be expanding to include painting, modifying etc).

So here's the result.

Before:



After:











So if any members on this forum (genuine members who contribute to the forum/turn up to events and rideouts etc) want anything wrapped I will do it for simply the cost of materials in exchange for using the pictures for the company website.

And in case anyone wants to know the bike is wrapped in Arlon Ultimate Premium Plus Satin Blue Aluminium

A while ago I drove into a multi-storey car park with a roofbox on, scraping and damaging it. I was thinking of repairing the cracks in the lid then wrapping it.... this possible?

Yep it is indeed chap, you just need to plastic weld the cracks, fill any scratches etc and wrap it. As for the car park its under my flat and being that I live in commuter central in Woking none of the other residents drive so I pretty much have my own secure underground car park Smile
