Motorcycle - The Dragon

I painted my Honda F6B this past January. Took me 12 days, roll in to roll out. I used to paint vans back in the 70s, so it was a steep learning curve to figure out the new paints.

Urethanes are a trip...

Here's the finished motorcycle. Wish I could put a video up, but I do have a URL for the little movie walkabout.

Oh, this is the second paint job. The first one went over the basic red that came off the showroom floor. I used a Paasche dual action brush for the actual paint and a small (8 oz cup) to shoot the urethane clear and primer. Totally my own design.






I now have over 38,000 miles riding the Dragon Beest. Maybe I'll paint her again?

And this was the "Red Queen" (same motorcycle, I'd only had her for a month when I took that fire-engine red and did this to her:
