I went to Canadian Tire and got some "Dupli-Color Perfect Match" paint. It comes in a traditional spray paint can, but the paint comes out very good giving you nice coats. Make sure you get primer and clear too!

I just got it a week ago, but i really like it. It's a mid seat so it's not as big as a fat, but bigger than i slim. It doesn't really get in the way, and is also pretty comfy.

Alright cool. also when you painted it, did you raw the frame first with like paint stripper? i want to paint my frame soon because it just looks like shit. your frame looks brand new with that paint job..i want like translucent blue. u know where i could get some?

Well, i don't really know how to paint trans blue, or any colour for that manner; but when i paint mine, i lightly sanded the frame so the black was roughed up a bit and where ever there were scratches or nics, i sanded down that area to the bare metal. I then applied two coats of sandable primer (any primer will do) and the next day i applied two coats of paint and clear. I used Dupli-Color Automotive paint by the way. Here in Canada, it was $12 for a can.

as someone who also paints bikes, i will say this is amazing. looks so sick. only a matter of time until matte finishes will be called "gay" by the all the cool kids and gloss is back in style, if it hasnt already happened lol.

What primer and what clear coat paint did you use on it and what was the color called? I want to do the same colorway as you but with red forks.

|

What hub guards are you using

Shadow Rear Hub Guard - I wouldn't really recommend it just cause it's a pain in the ass to get it to fit right in my frame.

I can't exactly remember. I know that the colour was "Dupli-Color Automotive Paint" that i found at Canadian-Tire. I think any primer and clear will do fine.

How long did you leave the frame to dry?
