FINISH AND PAINT
We are pretty picky ourselves when it comes down to the finish of your bike. We spend a lot of time making the fillet brazed frame joints of our St Joris – Road perfectly smooth and thinning lug points for the best durability and aesthetics on our St Joris – Road Lugged. After having finished a frame down to the last detail, we would not trust just anyone to paint it.
Pre-treatment before paint is the most important factor affecting the quality and durability of the paint. Our frames are carefully prepared to get the best result in both artwork and quality.
QUALITY AND DURABILITY OF OUR PAINTWORK
Pre-treatment before paint is the most important factor affecting the quality and durability of the paint. Our frames are carefully prepared to get the best result in both artwork and quality. Our painter, Leander, brings in a 25-year experience in custom (motorcycle) paintwork. The first step we take is fine glass bead blasting which we do in house. It allows us to control the process and do a final check on the finish level of our frames. This is followed by a chemical pre-treatement: zinc-phosphating. This gives a superior corrosion protection and forms the best adhesive layer for the primer. Depending on the exact paint scheme, 3-6 color layers are applied. Our paint schemes are 100% paint, no transfers used. Each frame is finished with a clear coat, either glossy or satin. We pay special attention to the sensitive parts in your frame, so that you keep enjoying your beautiful paintwork over the years. You can choose from more than 3000 colors in uni -, metallic – , and mica paint.
