So I am going to vinyl wrap this bike almost instantly and thought of doing a nice vintage sea foam first. I am buying the enduro seat and thinking about the high pipe (still on the fence on that)

i apologize in advance for my awful photoshop skills

Hi there! Why vinyl wrap and not paint? Would it not be harder to vinyl wrap rather then paint it? I'm guessing vinyl wrapping is the cheaper option tho.

Vinyl wrapping is not as hard as you would think. I could change colors of this bike for less than $100 with about 2 hours labor. Screw painting things hahaha in this day and age, especially for me, if i can change my bikes color quickly, for cheap, that is awesome. plus the vinyl wrap protects the original paint :D

Also once you paint you ruin the factory finish and you're stuck with the results good or bad. With a wrap you can just peel it off if you don't like and go back to the original finish. Some people (me included) automatically assume a bike has been crashed if it's been repainted too.

The only thing about wrapping a newly painted surface is that you may want to wait some time for the paint to set, just what I heard from some pros, not sure how much truth it holds but better safe than sorry.

Rather not remove the wrap and remove paint with it.

Oh I will definitely be vinyl wrapping, as I will probably change my mind on colors a bunch of times. You are right, gotta let the paint breathe for a bit. First things first, get the enduro seat, then work on the rest>:D
