How To Paint A Motorcycle Step By Step

Hey! What is going on!

I made this picture presentation, video, slideshow (whatever you want to call it) because I just have so many pictures sitting around and I thought I can sort of go through the step-by-step process with you. You’ll get full, complete footage inside the VIP Course.

The project  is a 1988 YSR50 that I picked up off at eBay Auction. I got a pretty good deal on it. This was actually one of the first projects that I worked on when I was a little kid, I was about 13 years old.

So anyway, I got it and disassembled it. You can see the plastics like the fender had some cracks on it and we’ve repaired everything with epoxy. We did a complete frame-off restoration which is exactly what I want to show you…every step of the process in step-by-step videos.

I’ll show you how it’s done from how to take the paint down to doing epoxy work where I put the pieces back together using epoxy. I also show some bondo work. We filled up the little dent on the tank there as you can see. Then we did some heavy 2k primer, filled up all the sand scratches. We did this to all the parts. And don’t worry because I cover everything inside the VIP Course.

Check out the video because I include a clip when I was wet sanding the tank.

You will see how I lay the base coat on. I used a silver base coat underneath because it makes our green paint pop. I also added a little graphic. I got some fine-lined tape and pinstriped the area where I wanted to leave the silver color, then put masking tape on it. That’s when we added the green paint over it, we did three (3) coats.

I painted the frame satin black.

A little bug landed on the tank while it was still a little wet so I also show you step-by-step how to sand it out just in case something similar happens to you.

So we got the clear coat on, we have the cool decal on. Then we started to put all the rest of the other decals and put everything all together. The finished product came out really, really cool.

But there’s only so much I can show you here. I just wanted to make this quick video so you can kind of see the step-by-step process.
