THE GRAY PROJECT – YAMAHA XV1900 ROADLINER
Not too long ago, I embarked on a another project bike in conjunction with Yamaha Australia and AMCN.
The bike was an XV1900 – arguably the best cruiser available in Australia today.
But seriously in need of some kinda masculinity to take away from its somewhat too arty…um, artiness.
So, while I shall eventually get to things like pipes and bling and suspenders and engine, I really had to do soemthing about it’s look.
Thus. the first port of call was with Brian Bollard at Rip Graphics in Alexandria, for a vinyl wrap. We chose to go with a matte grey and carbon fibre theme to to toughen up the whole look, which would contrast nicely with the bike unique art deco lines.
Vinyl wrap is a great thing. It looks awesome lasts for years and leaves the original paint pristine underneath.
RIP Graphics are masters at this process, which is not as expensive as you might think, and the colour options are vast.
