I never posted the pics of my friend Mitch's bike. If you look at the pics, you will see him on it, not me. I wish it was mine. He wanted to paint it flat black, retro, with flames. He built this bike by hand, over about a year's time, to the tune of $20,000. I was like "Oh hell no, we gotta do something special." Keep in mind, painting is just a hobby to me, but I wanted a challenge. Even the paint shop couldn't tell me how to apply this paint, at least not clearly. They only had a Vague idea. House of Kolor, black pearl base, silver marbelizer, three coats of Cobalt blue in an "intercoat", and seven coats of straight clear. -cost? About $400, total, including all supplies(paper,tape,primer,bondo) I started with rough bare metal, and the body work took two weeks!!!! spray time, 2 hrs. I encourage everyone to give it a shot(using the right tools and research). West Coast Chopper Baby!!!!! 2 pages.
