Bike painting

Hi,

Does anyone know of a half decent paintshop in Dubai I can get the tank of my bike rapainted at. I'm sure there are loads of places in Sharjah, but I can face the prospect of riding around aimlessly looking for somewhere!

Cheers,

Peter

Robbo is having his donated Africa Twin painted black to match the old stolen one for the registration docs. If you contact him he should be able to give the name of the place that Gecko have recommended in Dubai.

If you want a reliable place in Sharjah, try Al Beea run by Joseph. The quality is excellent and the prices are fair.

I got my Sportster tank repainted by a guy called Stephen who has an office opposite the airport on the road out to Mirdiff. I can't remember his full name or the name of his company but if you nip into the Harley shop, they'll probably know. He does, or used to do, quite a bit of work for guys who wanted a custom tank job.

Cheers,

Indoors.

Yes, he's at my flat. I'll ask him to e-mail you the details or his phone number. However, I understand that the paint job in Dubai was less than brilliant; whereas Paul's varnish job on his bike done by Joseph to protect all the signatures he has collected on the fairing was fantastic.
