I don't care for black bikes but that looks real good.

My buddy owns a small business that specializes in vinyl wrap. It was very impressive how the whole process works. It takes time and patients to get it to look right.

I really like the carbon fibre look. Having applied lots of vinyl decals in the past, I can't imagine the complexity of puttling a vinyl wrap around all those curves. They did a great job!

How does the cost compare to a pro paint job?

I had my tank top done about 3 years ago and is holding up fine under our intense sun for 40,000 Km
Sticker jobs are common here, easy, and cheap

My buddy is thinking of setting up for one of those immersion paint techniques and I am keen to see how this will work in fake CF paint
