Hi everyone, I am looking for some information regarding painting a motorcycle. I have looked through quite a bit of motorcycles out there to find my match and have settled on a CBR family.

However, the color selections are so limited, red, black, and the flag. I do not like any of the colors and would like to find out where I could find someone reliable to paint it yellow, not obnoxious yellow but a mellow yellow (sorry about that, it sounded goofy). I live in Arizona. And I am first time buyer and rider.

Just need a starting point and some help.  Confused

Thank you for your help. Have a great day.

Painting is kind of a local gig.  Look around your town for the guy with the best rep.  

Or just use flat black, you can't miss with that.

Once again the Greshmiester tells it how it is.

And a good paint job can easily run into the thousands of dollars - be prepared, to do it right takes a lot of time.

They call me mellow yellow
