We didn’t think we would be doing many resprays as it is just becoming too labour intensive to be economical to do a high quality repaints. We were very wrong, we now do brand new frames, upgrade older frames into the current year, old school steel, BMX’s, pretty much anything, we are more than happy to give your bike a paint job to make it really stand out. Please understand we cannot and will not come close to the $80 powder coat job you just got a quote for, or that mate of yours who is pretty handy with the aerosol can!
We have learnt that people in who love bikes are happy to pay for the correct job. Resprays with us start at about $450 and can go as high as your imagination $1500 is not uncommon for something really complex with loads of masking. Custom airbrush jobs can go past $2000. One thing you can be sure of, it will be better than a new one.
We can give you pretty much whatever you like, gloss to matt, matt to gloss, reverse the decals. Get custom decals made, you want it we’ll do it. Rather than fill this page with pictures of what we can do we have put just a couple of special jobs we have done recently. The Cervelo above looks so good together. That job was a lot more complex that it looks, so many little squares. The Joker below shows the talent of Damo our airbrush artist, he sure is the real deal! The Ritte below is also pretty special, we have clear coated the stainless steel. Not many people around can do this for you. Then of course the BMC with the aboriginal art, that looks great. All these are here to show we can give you pretty much what you want.
If you want to see more check the gallery, it is all there. Our face book page is the best way to keep up with our latest creations.
Ceramic Clearcoat Info
Our Ceramic Clearcoat offering has been a huge hit, we have had many brand new frames come in to be Ceramic Clearcoated for their owners before they take delivery of them. On a brand new frame this costs about $250, the best thing about it in my opinion it is it easier to clean. I am guessing the added acid resistance will be much better in the long run in the battle against sweat eating away at your clearcoat. Only time will tell for sure!
Unfortunately this clear is not suitable for touchups or matt finishes.
Here is PPG’s marketing spin on it;
PPG’s CeramiClear® clearcoat was the first clearcoat to use nanoparticle technology to achieve a previously unattained level of scratch, mar, and etch resistance. This patented technology creates a hard, silica-like surface that provides superior resistance to damage caused by day-to-day use, car washes, and environmental hazards such as acid rain and tree sap.
And some more;
The CeramiClear clearcoat from PPG Industries is the final original equipment manufacturer coating applied to a vehicle, and it protects the color coat while providing a durable, glossy appearance. CeramiClear clearcoat, the first automotive clearcoat to use nanoparticle technology, raises the standard for combined resistance to scratches, mars and acid etch. The patented nanoparticle technology creates a highly cross-linked network at the surface of the coating for superior resistance to damage caused by day-to-day use, car washes and environmental hazards such as acid rain and tree sap. “CeramiClear clearcoat is unmatched in scratch, mar and acid-etch resistance and retention of gloss throughout a vehicle’s lifecycle,” said Dennis Taljan, global director, decorative products for PPG. “We actually had to create new, tougher test procedures for CeramiClear clearcoat since no automotive coating had achieved this level of mar resistance before.”
