Paint & Body Work - airbrushing request
06-19-2007, 11:39 AM
dont know where to post, so i figured this is my best option.
just bought a black 2005 yamaha r6 - all black, red wheels with polished lips, and the red spring in the back. my question is if anyone wuld be able to airbrush a design on my black helmet? i have an HJC CL-MAX black helmet, and figured id get somethin airbrushed on to kinda break up the monotony. im not lookin for something too extravagant, or too heavy - just somethin to show up and look sharp. i want the paint to be the same shade of red as my wheels (in which case i will provide a pic of the bike if anyone is serious about doing this for me). also, the artist will be able to come up with his/her own design...so long as it doesnt look weird lol.
depending on the price, i may be able to do this soon. otherwise, im just looking to see if anyone on here is even willing to do this.

Ill do it, but im located in texas. I custom paint for Eastside Honda in Baytown. Check out the web page www.eastsidehonda.com look in the gallery section. Thats old stuff but you can still get an idea. Or go to my space page it has a bunch of pics of my work. Search anibal with the zip code 77520 on myspace and just send me an invite i have it set on private because of the spammers

ok, ill wait for the pics to show up here. i took a look at ur site and i didnt see too much artwork as far as unique designs, but what i did see looked sharp.
how much are u asking for? i dont have a specific design in mind..i'd just like to have a cool, unique tribal design or something of that sort. i dont want it to cover the whole helmet - like i said earlier, i just want somethin thats subtle...that adds just enough touch. i can give u pics of the bike if u'd like, if that gives u a better idea.

Well i dont know why its not letting me post pics here so ill unlock my myspace for like a day so you can go in there and see. Just go to http://www.myspace.com/anibalsalinas and go to pics and you will see my most recent paintjobs. Is your bike the raven with the flames on the bottom?

O.O holy piss dude...thats incredible artwork ya got there! i almost wanna send my bike to have u paint it :)
but to answer ur question, my r6 isnt the raven version - the previous/first owner ordered some visual upgrades. i can give u pics if u'd like. maybe that'll help give u an idea of wut to paint on my helmet? as far as a description goes - the bike is all black, with red rims/polished lips, red spring (in the rear), and a smoked windscreen. other minor details include powdercoated pegs, !stock turn signal/license plate bracket and replaced with the small clear markers, front markers are clear. i think that about does it. but like i said, lemme know if u want pics so u can get an idea of the red thats on the bike. im not sure if its the same shade as whats on the raven.
after seeing the pics on ur page, ill trust ur imagination wont be too wild or crazy where the helmet will look retarded.

Thanks for the complements. I Have the same theory, "less is more" yeah send me some pics of the bike. Im pretty sure i can work something out.

hey man, sry for the long delay, but work got kinda busy. here are the pics as requested:
the helmet is just a standard motorcycle full-helmet - all black. the model number is an HJC CL-MAX
lemme know wut ya come up with.
07-02-2007, 12:03 PM
Man that bike looks well taken care of. Looks good yeah i can do something to match that.
07-02-2007, 12:44 PM
aight man.. lemme know wut kinda designs ya come up with an some prices.
tks for the compliment..

You said you wanted like some tribal flames to match your bike. Something subttle like that would run you 150.00. But you would have to pay for shipping. I also have a plotter so if you wanted like r6 on there or something like that i can do that as well. i think some red tribal flames out lined in the silver the r6 number are would look sweet. But not too much just enough to get noticed.

i like ur taste already.. how long u think this wuld take? i dont want u to rush or anything...just make sure u do a good job (which im confident, by ur pictures uve shown me, that more than capable of exceeding my expectations). my helmet's got a few scratches on it, but..i dont think it wuld cause a big problem.

It should not take me longer that a week. Right now i am almost done painting my T/A all black with just true fire on the ramair vents and comming out the heat extractors. ill post some pics. I keep trying to post pics but when i go to prieview it does not show nothing am i doing something wrong? if you like ship it to eastside honda. The adress should be on the web site if not ill post it.

i know when i post pics, i have to go thru a picture host - such as photobucket.com or cardomain.com. lately, ive been using photobucket, since they're real quick to register and upload pics with. once u upload those pics, u got to right click on the pic u want, go to properties, and highlight/copy the picture's address/url (the real long address starting with http://). once u've copied it, start a reply/post here, then just click on the insert image button (below the 3 drop-down menus for font, size, and color), and a prompt box comes up. all u got to do is paste the address u copied into that box, click ok, and thats it. ull see it show up here with some basic html codes, an ur done with posting that pic. press enter twice more and repeat those steps as necessary.
lemme know when u want me to send it (after the 15th of this month), an ill pack it up an send her on her way. also, lemme know how to pay you the money u quoted me. i dont think we're aloud to discuss prices out here in the open since ur not an official sponsor, so as far as that goes, we can pm each other.
