In the Shop

The Warkshop Paintshop


Sorry, I've retired from painting

Finish quality and durability are both top priorities. The Warkshop is a one man shop. I do all aspects of the work from initial prep to spraying, polishing and pin striping. I have no helpers, no trainees, I will be the only person touching your parts. Customer service is important and communication between myself and those who entrust me with this work is a critically important component. Digital images will be taken and emailed to you throughout all stages of the work.

Who should paint your bike? I use German-made, gravity fed spray guns. Experience has taught me that these spray guns are the finest available and provide precision control and lay down a glassy finish. But the process doesn't start with paint or priming. Parts must be broken down, sanded, degreased and properly prepared. Painting a bike is very different from painting a car or a truck, and you should not automatically trust your bike with an autobody man.

Check out this overview of the painting process I have written. It will give you a better understanding of the techniques I use, and what you will be in for if you decide to go the DIY route.

Work Samples

I seem to have evolved into a BMW specialist. With that said i am happy to consider taking on any brand, parts is parts.Click on a bike manufacturer to see some samples, and remember, just because you don't see your make doesn't mean I don't paint them. 40 years is a long time to paint bikes and I don't have photos of all of them!
