Denver Area Motorcycle Painters

Does anyone have a painter in the Denver area they’d recommend? I don’t need a ghost or flame painter, just a good quality painter with motorcycle experience.

Thanks for any suggestions,

Ted - Denver

As seen on Craig's List

This guy - Mike Schultz [july51@worldnet.att.net] advertises on Craig's List every now and then. I have not used him, but plan to when I am ready to get my son's VFR painted.

Morse in the Springs. I could not find anyone good closer when I looked a few years ago. I had one bad experience in Denver with http://www.advancecustom.com/ and discourage patronizing them.

Mike down at Supertune has a very quality painter. I don't know who he is but you might give Mike a call and see what he suggests.

We have a couple very good quality and affordable painters.
Single color, multis, metalics, clear coats and pearls, too.
Give us a call.

I'll be giving you a call.

Picking this up next weekend, a $995 craigslist find that turned out better in person than I thought it could. Has a couple of small things that need attention, and I wouldn't mind having that fairing color matched to the bike either, and there's a scuff on the rear cowl.

When your schedule allows. Nothing urgent at all.
Use it as filler work on a slow week (if you ever get one). I don't want to make it snow or anything

Did someone say vintage ride?

I'm up for an old school ride Blake

The reason I was asking about painters is the R90 could use some new paint too.. but I'm hoping to find a hannigan or similar fairing first.

Not a painter, but I have a powder coater in the springs I use a bit. He's not cheap, but good work. Won't help much for the Denver folks.

That GS is NICE!!!

Blake, That GS is sweet!! Very nice!
I may be able to get that Emgo fairing painted to match. May be tricky to get it exact.
Look forward to seeing it in person!

Sweet GS there Blake. One of my favs from my youth.

This was a cool fairing on the S model.

That's more than just the "S" model....if you find a Wes Cooley in any kind of good shape - snap it up!
