The custom painting process on my Martini Shiv is finally done!!!!!! I should have the frameset in my hands next week. Once again, an amazing thank you goes out to Tyler from Censport Graphics for his amazing craftsmanship, time, and effort! Also thanks to Tai for the help with the S-Works decals. Many of you have already seen a lot of these photo's but I wanted to post everything from the beginning design concepts to the end.... I'll let the pictures do the talking..... Enjoy.

My Initial Sketch...



Design Idea's with Tyler...









Decal ideas using a collage I made from old Porsche Factory Racing Posters....

Spectacular! It looked great at every paint stage, too... If you had have stopped at any point, it would still be cool.
Next up... Full build pics!!!

Just curious, did the paint add much weight?

Have you posted pics on any of the Porsche boards? I think the folks at Rennlist would sure like to see it.

Nice! Are the race wheels getting any treatment? Custom saddle? Any other touches going into the final build?

This is so full of win. I'd be terrified to ride it with that quality of a paint job, but bikes are meant to be ridden, so rock on.

mmmmm.... yummy.

The question of who is right and who is wrong has seemed to me always too small to be worth a moment's thought, while the question of what is right and what is wrong has seemed all-important.

Beautiful bike paint job.

Question: Was the stem/handlebar top cap meant to be painted without the handlebars or a shim to lift it to its dressed height? I.e. w/ the cap on but no bars, all the stripes line up. Now, w/ the bars in place, there looks like a slight jump or discontinuity in the stripes.

Still love it though!

WHOAH!

The decal, which was my second choice, LOOKS AMAZING!

When you hit us with the first pic of the clearcoat, my jaw dropped.

(again)

WHOAH!!!

That paint job has to be good for 19w at the crank. Fantastic!

This bike should have it's own rack at every race! Hell, this bike should have it's own butler at every race, handing you your bike. I expect paparazzi like photogs before, during and after every race that thing shows up at!

Nice job, now don't ruin it with all that Di2 crap! (FLAME ON)

Absolutely stunning!
Any chance you weighed the frame before and after?
