    This has been discussed so many times.What bike and what is your budget? You are going to be really shocked what it costs to paint a bike "properly".

    ... and if you try to do it cheaply, prepare to be unhappy with the results.

    ctc rattle cans aren't very good. get some $20 cans made in your choice of colour at your local bodyshop supply....they hold more paint and spray much better..

    I did that last year to my BMW, took all the painted parts off, took them to a body shop where the workers owned motorcycles. Cost was 800$ and the quality of work was marginal, paint is thin enough on 2 panels to see white plastic through the paint finish.

    Look into vinyl wrap, it might be a better way to accomplish what you are wanting to do.
