Are you thinking about painting your bike and you want something a bit different?
hydro dyping may interest you. Cost seems to be affordable: HGHARTS supplies

Interesting, but a bit too Barrio for my tastes.

"but a bit too Barrio for my tastes"

Please explain...Barrio?

I've seen this done before and I think it's just bloody clever!

Hmmm that is really neat, I wonder if a whole fairing is possible and more to the point affordable.

Here in Canada, a professional will ask about $2,000 to spray paint(one color) a bike with a big fairing (primer, base coat, clear coat).
Water transfer imaging could be cheaper as you can DIY and use rattle cans for the primer and base coat. (I think the clear coat should be sprayed rather than using rattle cans)
Here is a company selling kits:
Kits are priced at $69,$99 and $169
But what you really need from the company is:
-The film: $35 for 1 square meter (20 inches wide by 6.6 feet long).
-Additional film: $120 for 5 square meters (20 inches wide by 30 feet long).
-The activator: $34 for a 12oz can. (if you watch videos, it doesn't require a lot)

Another company selling kits


There are plenty of videos on Youtube showing the DIY process.

Rick, are you thinking of painting your entire bike with skull patterns? Custom painting 44271

For large parts, you can double dip. see an example here


Who will be the first one to experience on a K?

I have seen these patterns(especially the carbon fibre look) on cars in the neighborhoods where Mexican immigrants congregate.  Looks a bit too decorative and is easily overdone if you're not careful.  My personal taste is toward simple functionality and these patterns are just too busy, and faddish.

I suppose that makes me a racist xenophobe.  Oh well...

Most of the $2000 is taken up in the preparation and that has to be done regardless, even if you are using tar and a broom.
As for the skull idea w....e.....l....l it's not really me and I wouldn't like all the guys laughing at me. Laughing

Ah so Barrio is someplace near mexico, where garish cars are on display, I like to look but I wouldn't touch, besides I'm lousy when doing stickers

Barrio is Spanish for the Mexican community or "the hood".   They can be found anywhere where Mexican immigrants, especially the illegals cluster together.   Most American cities have one now, not just the ones close to Mexico.

Thanks, that's entirely different to what I imagined a barrio was, incredible.
I thought it was a bike style after the likes of pimp my ride, a bloke will have to pay a bit more attention to the rest of the world one day.

That's it!  It''s the Hispanic version of "Pimp My Ride" or the full dress Hardley.

Think low rider with the pom poms around the windshield and the crown air freshener thingy in the back window for some historical perspective.
