My Airbrushed Reiker Frame

Postby kylie on Fri 15/Jun/07 3:18pm

Hi guys a newbie on here - Hi! I am an artist in my spare time from Westharbour, Auckland and do a lot of custom art.

Recently I did my own bike build and custom painted a carbon frame in PPG Dulon paints.
The frame and fork are Reiker full carbon. Wheels are Token with ceramic bearings and one piece bar are Token. (I couldnt bring myself to airbrush some Zipps or Cinelli ram bar ). Tape is real leather.

Components: mainly campy record, chorus ergo shifters and cranks. There was about 40+ hours of airbrushing and wet-sanding involved, but overall a cool project. Weighs in at 7.5kg which is not bad. The theme is from the Colnago special edition bikes with the Da Vinci art. I wanted to take parts of this art, combine it with ripped metal, rusty rivets with woodgrain. The look of the bike is meant to be of the da vinci era of how he would have made his own bike, hence the wood, art and rivets etc.

You can contact me at kyliesmith@woosh.co.nz for further details and pricing etc.
Cheers :)

Where do you live? and why not put this on the general forum? (obviously it's a road bike, hence the road forum - but would you do MTBs? - if so, maybe stick a link to it on the MTB forum too). What about helmets - would you do those?
(just curious really, but I occasionally get asked if I know of a good airbrush artist by various people)

Oh and nice work :)
