Rattle-Grenade Flat Black, then use the "flingit" method with seven or eight of your fav colours from a large paintbrush. OR your hand. Handprints, that'd be diff.

OR, that roll-on Herculiner stuff.

OR, Scroogle a few pics of your fav early Coldwar-Era Military Jet, complete with "Sharkmouth" and design a scheme around that. That'd be feckin' COOL havin' the Sharkmouth right-behind the footwell.

OR, getcherself like a bazillion psuedo-"gems" from Hobby Lobby (like $5), and glue 'em ALL OVER the bike, in interesting patterns. Like a Coldwar-Era Military Jet. Complete with "Sharkmouth"................

Seriously, it depends on what your objectives are. if you want to "make a statement", see above.

If you want a professional, glossy, flawless job, then take it to a pro, or prepare to invest in a lot of equipment, time, and effort. It's expensive, because it's a lot of work.

Paint it refigerator gloss white, with appliance paint. Make it look like a '55 Kelvenator. Put some chrome handles on it, drawer pulls or sumpin'.

I was thinking the look should be more of a wood burning stove from the late 1800's.

Hey what happened to my post? I said Vespa's should be faded pea green or off white and covered with diesel soot and brick dust.......

Have I in some inadvertant way offended the Italian-American contingent with my accurate portrayal of the iconoclastic Wasp?????

If I have I'd like to answer with the same heartfelt response I got from some little Italian street urchin when I wouldn't give him a cigerette, to wit:

"Fungu you ma-ma"...

Thank you, and good day....
