All you need to do is check around where you live amongst body shops. What you want done is pretty straight forward and any good man with a gun can do it. It's not all that hard and the work is in the prepping.

I will highly recommend the fine people at Magnum Collision Repair....ask for Mike (the owner) and tell him Ed with the MV sent you.....seriously, they do absolutely first rate work.

www,magnumcollision.com

770-427-4590

These are the guys that fix the body damage on all the Ferraris. Lambos, Astons and such in the Atlanta area. And Mike is a vintage bike aficionado...

Not cheap, but it will look like it just left the factory when they finish.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

As long as they use felxible primer, and mix in flex additive in the paint and clear coat, any decent body shop will do.

Have a look at the classic motorbike press - anybody who makes their living in that area is likely to be excellent - and used to the intracies of bike stuff.

Yup, anyone who's good will be happy to show you stuff they have done for bikers and you can make your own mind up.

Why would you want to add flexi to the paint? I'm just curious.

Without it the paint will chip off. Anytime you paint plastic or bike parts in general, you need to add flex to the paint and clearcoat. Not needed for the tank if its steel or aluminum, but every other plastic part needs it.

Sorry, but I disagree. Flex addittive is really only used for those parts that get VERY flexed in installation or use. Parts like bumper covers. All rigid plastics: fenders, covers, body panels, etc. do not need flex additive.

Yes, I have painted a few projects:

There is NO flex additive in any of this paint. Most modern paints now use hardener only in the top-coat. Underlying color coats and intermediate clear coats do not use hardener. When a quality paint is used and applied properly, it is damn near bullet (and fuel) proof. Proper paint for the proper application is key.

(For the record: I am not a proffesional, but I do play one on TV...and, yes, I do know the Kawasaki on the tank should have been angled down toward the front to match the line better...live, do something, and learn....)
