    Holt BMW in Ohio is the gold standard for this work.

    Ditto and just up the road from Holt is Bob Wark another gold standard. Both advertise in the ON.

    Be forewarned - gold standard means $$$$ but the 90S is very demanding to paint and if the shading is not perfect, all is lost.

    Very pleased with the work Ray Atwood did on my 84 R100CS Last Edition. Absolutely fabulous paint work and not nearly as expensive as Holt. I constantly get comments on the depth, clarity and quality of this paint.

    Ray advertises in ON, as well.

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    My painer in Belmont, CA has done about 20 bikes for me...all different shades of pearls and shading. Pinstripes by hand.

    You walk into his shop and there are always Porsches, Ferraris, a couple REAL exotics like a Formula 1 or original Shelby getting prepped for paint.

    He does bikes on the side because he likes them...but cars pay the bills. My '88 KRS with the blue/white pearl combination and double pinstriping was $1,300. The last R80G/S with 10 pieces in a charcol pearl white (you have to see it to believe it) was $700.

    Perfect painter and great guys at the shop.
