    Custom paint jobs

    Besides an obvious Klein and a Mountain Goat deluxe, what other bike companies made beautiful paint schemes?

    thanks for stating the obvious Eric.
    I'm just not familiar with them and that's why I asked.
    I've been getting more interested in the early 90's bikes and would like to own/build/paint one of the cool ones.
    My father used to paint custom colors on race cars back in the day and seeing some of the gorgeous Mountain Goat deluxe pictures and talk of 70's stuff in another thread has brought up distant memories that I would like to recapture.
    Don't worry, I'm not wiping tears away right now.
    The old man has done lots of Candy Apple lacquer and Imron paint jobs over the years and I think maybe he'd like to do a bike before he croaks.

    You can have Chris send your just built frame across town to Toxic Harald @ Toxic Labs instead of painting it in house and he'll paint whatever you want on it.

    I always thought those were some of the ugliest bikes possible, but I suppose tastes vary.
    Don't call it a gooseneck.

    Are you gonna hound me over this?
    Think about it for a minute- it's an uncommon and unusual bike component that could go high or low depending on the demand at any given time, so I think my comment is fair enough.
    Let's agree to disagree and why don't you show us some nice pretty custom paint?

    Zygote, please knock it off. You're getting a reputation for whining.

    I love Huelse's candy cane Ibis and don't forget the Wolfman! The wedding tandem also is up there.

    GOB- those 3 bikes you posted are nice. especially the map.
    DFA- Toxik looks very nice.
    The Ibis near the top of the thread is great too.
    I think that the deluxe tops them all or at least what I've seen so far.
    Thanks.

    Yeah, which deluxe paint job? I was thinking of the California Yuppie when I saw this thread.
