Spray Painting + Restorations + Carbon Repairs

Spray Painting

From a matte black stealth machine with absolutely no branding to rainbows, unicorns and poems on every square centimetre, Jared and Mel can make it happen.   Artwork mock-ups sent to you before starting will give you a clear idea of what your frame will look like when done.  Complete peace of mind.

Components like stems, bars, rims and helmets can be customised too. Even pieces of motorbikes (like petrol tanks), cupboards, prosthetics and cases that hold musical instruments have seen the insides of our booth.

But no cars.

Yet…

Touch-ups

If you want to preserve the original paint work but it needs some attention we can touch up all the chips, nicks and scratches ’til you’d have a hard time remembering where they were.

Restorations

Old or damaged bikes slowly pieced back together with great care and patience. We make sure to source suitable spares in keeping with the age and look of the bike and can bring just about any hunk of junk back into the present.

Carbon repairs

Carbon repairs carry a one year guarantee and the touch-up, as far as is possible, is done so that no visible sign of repair is evident.  Almost like it didn’t happen.  Please note: some damage is not repairable (safety first!) – we will need to assess each case individually.

    1. Hi Telani! Thanks so much for your message. It is always possible to respray and changing the colour just because you want to is a good enough reason to do so 🙂 Please email us at paint@bicyclerepairs.co.za with an image of your bike as it is and some ideas on how you would like it to look and we will get back to you with a quote on the cost.

    1. Hi Kayleigh,
      Thanks for your comment! Pricing is between approximately R2500 and R6000 for the spray work only, depending on the complexity of the design, how many colours are required and what the condition of the frame is.
      Welcome to drop us an email to paint@bicyclerepairs.co.za for more information.
