Paint shop.

16 posts in this topic

Anyone have recommendation on a bike paint shop, I'm sure there are plenty of regular auto body shops that will do it but I'm looking for a specialty shop that deals with bikes alone. thanks.

Are you looking for a custom paint job or just a good quality basic job?  If you're looking for a full blown custom I would call the Donnie Smith shop and talk to them.  For a good quality basic job I wouldn't hesitate to go to an all purpose shop like X-Treme (I'm not endorsing them I just know they paint most anything) .

On second thought, I would call the Donnie Smith shop and tell them what you're looking for.  I've met these guy's at their show and they seem pretty straight up.

I don't have any recommendations. But just a warning....

If you paint your bike you are forever married to it. Or will be deminiahing it's resale value. Because it will always be looked at as crashed or laid down. I know it's always a deal breaker if I see the words custom paint.

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
