I spoke to JMass this weekend at ADA, and he trained to wrap in the US, and is a wickedly good graphic designer - decals is his thing too.....was good to find a WD that one can give some work to!! Good luck with your wrap Jeff...posting pics and giving prices would be great!

La, I really like this one (below). I think it could work very well to have the panels wrapped in such a motif.  But you will need a real artist to make it blend with the form of the bike, I guess.

JMass (Justin) has done a lot of bikes - including a number of his own and Skinny's track bikes - and he does a damn good job! If I was going to get my bike wrapped, I would definitely take it to him.

Nice seeing you again Laurika, correction there, that would be the UK, just so we eliminate any grey areas.
You also need to know i am colour blind before this goes any further  :patch:   :biggrin:

you can save yourself a lot of time and money:
if you invite Coxswain over to come and wash your bike and I'm sure  he'll throw in a nice paint job as well.
his favourite colour is red though..just tell him it's dash protecting stuff and he'll be extra diligent

oh.. and he only works in the dark

sorry L, just couldn't resist :lol8:


Once you have decided let's see the final result, love all the ideas shown so far
cheers

Laurika, maybe you should consider either a nice farm scene print, or maybe a Brandy advert "eish" comes to mind. Who knows the brand may even invite you for a advert or so. NEVER know !   Plaasmeisie needs to move up a notch or two in our society  ;D
