Hi Everyone

This is my first rocking motorcycle. It is cut on a cnc router and the wood is Baltic Birch plywood 3/4" & 1/2" thk. It is doweled and glued in layers with some screws. It is painted with rust-oleum painter's touch high gloss, this is water based latex. It was painted with white latex primer first then sanded before 2-3 coats of finish.

Love your rocking motorcycle.

Question:  I see you used Rust-Oleum Painters Touch High Gloss.  Is this a brush on or spray on finish.
Yours looks awesome.  I have been using the Rust-Oleum and Krylon Silver sprays and find them very hard to get a smooth even finish even with primer and sanding in between coats.

Just wondering how you got such an awesome finish with the silver.

Thanks for posting these, and they are fantastic, great project.
Ken brings up a good point with respect to the bike in work.
Are you spraying or brushing, if spraying is there a lot masking done?
There seems to be a few areas that would be difficult to spray when glued and assembled.
Same problem when trying to apply final coats to smaller scale toys also.

That is a good looking bike and I am sure that any child would be proud to own it ... Don

Thank you Guys

Ken, to answer your question, the paint is brushed on. Some parts were painted before assembly. The seat I painted the bottom before I screwed it on then plugged the screw holes and finished the top. To paint the tires and rims I painted the tires first then made a ring out of paper Bristal board to protect the tires. The red slats on the rockers were done like the seat. The silver paint is Rust-oleum Metallic Accents also brushed on. It turned out better than expected with the brush. I did do some masking around tank and handle bars

Again thanks and you did a great job.
