Some cans of Krylon Fusion, some careful prep time, wet sanding and polish is all that is needed to repaint the bike.

I've used truck bed, rubberized spray on liner, with good results on a motorcycle. The stuff is fairly cheap and real tough. It actually looks pretty good with the texturized finish.

I use Krylon spraycans and have never even used the Fusion product at all (yet).... cause I'm always experimenting with paintjobs. :lol:

You can go spend as little as rattle can or as much as you want all depends on what you want, mild or wild. Of course the wilder, the more expensive.
