    Has anyone ever had a custom paint job on a Griso? If so what was the approximate cost and how much work did you perform yourself (stripping the bike down, sanding parts, etc)?

    The one thing that I don't like about the 2016 is the color. They just don't speak to me. I have an idea for a custom paint job based on a vintage race livery that I think would look pretty good. Don't have it mocked up yet.

    Also if you have ever done a livery style paint job were your logos and what not decals with clear over them or painted on?


    This would not be a home paint job but a professional btw. I understand costs vary just looking for any real world dollars to go off of.

    Thanks!

    Too many unknown factors like how many colors, what is being painted IE plastic that gets unbolted or frame where stuff has to be taped off, type of paint etc....

    That being said you need to budget a grand & if you are having it done by a really good custom shop that may not be enough.

    True, a lot of variables. Pretty sure I'm not going down to the frame and will leave it black. I just have never had anything painted so not even sure of the ballpark. I'd be removing all the parts I want painted and leave some up to the shop to tape off (such as the shaft drive if I decide it needs to be painted to match my design).

    Thanks.

    Only a grand? Have you priced good paint lately? Just the color paint (3 quarts) for my Model T was $800.0 o and that was 7 years ago.

    The vinyl coverings by 3M are of high quality. Just an option that will never fade and difficult to scratch. The red option is a close match to the original Guzzi Red. The carbon fiber has depth and real poxy feel and look to it as a cool option. Worth a look see for sure. Good luck.

    Originally, but a 1926 color is Windsor Maroon so I decided to pain her that color.
