Amazing process, but I can see this going way overboard... no doubt in Scootering in the coming year we'll see whole scooters dipped in Paul Weller/Football hero/bla bla bla...


It might be interesting applied over a clear/unpainted finish.

This a modern camo done on a remote. Its an old pic but was something I considered for my primer P when I was thinking of coatings. The bike is long gone.

I don't know if id do a whole bike but accents would be cool. Like frame and tins. Basically everthing under the hood.

Here's a corporate video better explaining the process.

There's a company in Vancouver that does it. I did not know that. This tech is new to me, but I'm still not interested in having anything done.

Are there home kits, I wonder?

The process has been around as long as waterslides have.

I mean its basically a huge waterslide as opposed to a little one for your fender.

It's those abominations that they build. Please tell me your not a chopper guy. If so, I guess I'm kind of sorry.

I think the chopper thing has ran it's course and your going to see these $20.000 dollar builds going cheap cheap cheap like those Japanese tuner cars from the late 90's, early 2000's. Thousands plowed into them and the owners are selling them for 10 or 15 grand.

I could be wrong, I've wrong many a time or maybe it's just wishful thinking.

I like 2 wheels. I love choppers. I like bobbers. I like side shifters.

My favorite chopper is a San Francisco style that was popular in the 60's and 70's and brought back by Jesse James before anybody knew how to spell his name.

It is a rigid with no front brake and no rake as a base. The sickos would go side shift.

If you have a problem with OCC than that's just different taste. They do employ all American/usa made frame makers and tank builders. All their specialty work is farmed out to American fabricators and technicians.

Their theme bikes are gross though.

Fair enough. America/Canadian built, Great! I appreciate the simplicity behind the James bikes but they're not my thing. I love cafe's when it comes to simplicity or just stock Japanese bikes from the 70's early 80's. No plastic cladding. I'm looking for something now but all the great stuff is south of the border. Portland always seems to have great bikes at reasonable prices but I don't have the time to get there.

We will agree it's the dressed up cobwebs and god knows what else theme shit that are stupid. Jesse James himself called OCC, cake decorators. A suitable name for OCC.

Cool. I love that sprung front end. It's all so simple but elegant. They look easy to ride, also. The attention to detail in the front drum brakes- fukin-a! I was watching Leno's garage when he was looking at cafe racers and the guy representing the builder mentioned Grimeca still builds drum brakes like that. They were stunning, to say the least. I'll look for a pic.

It is actually called Hydro dipping. It's pretty expensive (if you want it done right). Check out my GT rim that may go on my Vespa Street racer.

Yep. I priced some stuff about 5 years ago and it was spendy.

We have a place in the valley called California Hydro Graphics.

Had them do some things this year for a commercial.

Jeez, I'm still going through those pics. The attention to detail is nuts. What do they cost?

He did a bike for skateboarder Jason Lee that cost an estimated 40k.

From Wikipedia.

The first motorcycle in The Falcon Ten series, The Bullet, was a customized 1950 Triumph Thunderbird built out with parts from other rare bikes as well as newly fabricated parts. Commissioned by skateboarder and actor Jason Lee, over 1,000 hours went into its fabrication.[7]
