Default Where to get the best repaint.

Im rebuilding another Yo! Eddy to match the one I very stupidly sold a few years back. When I bought it from fat, I had it custom painted. I want it painted to match my old one, but not sure where to go. Anyone have an opinion, or better yet, any experience. Thanks guys.

Default Had mine repainted by Air Art....

Check out the gallery of bikes and look for the pink and purple fade job. Russ Picket , who did the custom paint jobs for Mountain Gaot, painted mine. he is in Chico California and does mavelous work.

He does not have a computer and is pretty old school.

Looks like they do good work, but they seem really, really expensive. I dont mind paying for quality, but thats a crap load. I wonder if they give discounts to people that work at shops? Guess Ill have to call. Anyone else have any experiences?

Default how did this turn out?

I am in the Washington DC area now and planning a full rebuild of my Yo later this year. Just contacted Wendyll for some stickers and am actually leaning toward a very very matte gray blue "earth pastel" color a la some of the IBIS frames on the mid90s. Always liked that screeching earth color palette that IBIS had...but will definitely be toning it to fat palette.

did you get a quote from them SSJASON?

I got the bike back from paint (if anyone is even reading this thread anymore). I got it done at Vicious Cycles and it came out awesome. Total cost with two colors, my name on the top tube, paint removal, prep, and the custom work with the "tear effect" on both the top and down tubes. Total cost with return shipping was $320.00 (with a shop employee discount). Worth every penny!
