now thats a frame slider that went to work!

If the prices on doing the wraps were cheap, I'd get something done as opposed to paint. It's not permanent and somewhat durable.

yeah thats the problem, its just as much to wrap a whole bike as it is to paint it.......but on a fighter it would cost less since there is ALOT less to cover. 2 fenders, a tank and tail.....pretty cheap. I think i was qouted $75-85 for enough with extra to do my bike

Spraypaint it or get it painted a solid color, and just get a print run of vinyl stickers. A lot cheaper for the same thing.

Clearcoat over the stickers if you want to protect them. Clearcoat also does a good job of hiding the sticker edges.

If it's a good quality industrial grade vinyl there is no need to clear coat it.

There was a vinyl shop in my area a few years back. Dude got a similar scheme on his Blazer. Basicly a pin strip of 100 dollar bills around the belt line. The printing was so realistic. Down to the individual serial numbers. Well, the shop eventually got into the counterfiting business. Saposably did it for a number of months befor they got busted. The dumb part was, the next tenents of that shop found all the printing machines still in the shop after the raid... :wtf: . Dumb cops... LOL.

So how do the vinyl shops do it? they take measurements or do they jst get a sheat and heat shrink it? I see SUV's totally covered promoting whatever hip hop album for $700, just curious.

Lots of trimming pieces and fitting. You cant see the seams in that picture but i promise you they are there. You could not wrap a whole fairing without cutting it into sections, to many akward curves/dips/bumps
