I think that paint scheme will suit a red RS very well. Look forward to the pictures. :)

Dream Machine

Dare I ask whats the damage ?
Not too bad mate, got a quote from Dream Machine Race Paints for £1050.00,
that includes picking up the bike & returning it once its complete, with a turnaround time of 2-4 weeks. The guy at my local bike shop knows the rep & he thinks he can get it down to £900.00
(HAPPY DAYS!!!)
its going to be such a buzz, not only will i have a bike that most people have never seen, it will have a unique paint job too.:cool:

Not too bad you should try and sort out a headlight cover to finish it off cant wait to see the paintjob finished.When I had my Aprilia RSV I was going to get a rep done by Altamura they dont use decals they paint em !!!

Never got that far as the bike was written off, just give them a call they are really nice guys.I found them in PB magazine in a feature they were respraying a Rizla Suzuki paint job from Dream machine that had bubbled.....If i can find it il scan it off for you.Just think if you get the headlamp protector painted at the same time would give it a real race bike look !!

They have already painted a Benelli go to one of the last pages of the gallery

not sure its to my taste !!!

Hmm yes interesting choice... if someone wants that effect I have a much cheaper suggestion - leave it outside for a british winter!

Spoke to paul at Altamura today, he is sending me a quote on monday, he gave me a ball park figure of £1200. he explaned that dream machine use decals that are over-lacquered & that they do the whole thing with paint & airbrushes. he has invited me down to the workshop next week for a cuppa & a tour. i think that dream machine have lost customer & altamura have gained one. There web site is well worth a look, they have done work for Sir Dickie Branson!!!! have a look at the Boat with the Training shoe paint job.
Thanks for the tip mate:bow:
