    Welcome to the forum James. Where in the world are you based? Do you have any equipment yet, paints, airbrush etc etc.. All these questions give us the information needed if you need any help with your projects or if you need to get equipment or paint. Plus were nosey and like to know everything.

    Welcome from the UK, that’s a nice looking bike. As Lee said, the more info we have the better answers we can give to questions.

    Welcome , Now the question is how much airbrushing have you done? If you have never painted art with an airbrush it may be a long while before you can airbrush that bagger.

    Welcome to the forum, @james g. @Mr.Micron and @huskystafford are both right. It is not your dad's can of Krylon! Practice makes perfect is especially true here. But don't let that stop you from diving right in and remember to have fun. ;)

    Greetings from Salt lake City. I too would like to custom paint a bike someday. I'm just beginning, but having a blast trying different paint, practicing the basic strokes, and gaining more control over the brush each day.

    Absolutely , I'm from From Southern Utah. I kinda started way back in the 80's, Try it it for a while , With t-shirts just practicing for a few months .Got disinterested and haven't picked up an air brush since . Have been working as an Certified collision repair tech for 13 years and desired to learn how to paint automobiles instead of collision repair . I have a air pump and a cool old Paasche ab (vl0409) and a Air pump model GS TC-20. I plan on trying my hand with some basic stencil with black and white color . I have a 1200sq shop to paint and work on old cars . I'm currently working on a 1964 Volkswagen Bettle from Germany, that has been in the family since i was a small lad. My bike colors are going to be a Mercedes Benz color R(x35 Beige) with a Vivid Black (a Harley Davidson color) with skulls and spiders. Well see what happens. Thanks for Welcome!
