Hello Everyone ,
My attention to this thread has been brought to me by Mike Rides Red via a personal e-mail. I am the guy producing these graphics. I would like to thank Mike publicly, among others I see, for endorsing my graphics. I am thrilled to see all the great response I have been getting lately regarding the graphics.
In response to the questions I have been reading:
Yes, the graphics are perforated as seen in the close up photo. Thanks again to Mike. I don't know about the rest of you but those huge perforation holes you find commonly in aftermarket graphics just don't do it for me. I went small because it looks clean and it works. Direct fuel tank applications do have difficulty with surface fuel vapor leakage. That is what can cause bubbles.
The graphics are of high quality. I use vinyl as would be expected. I also use a special UV protectant overlaminate to ward off the suns rays. They are gas resistant. I highly advise against doing this but to test them I soaked them in gas for a long time...no problem.
Yes I do custom work. I get back to you FAST and I get the set out to you as quickly as I can. I try to be the McDonald's drive-thru of custom graphics. Why? Because it's what I would want.
As far as hiring anyone on to work with me as mentioned in this thread :wink:, it won't happen anytime soon...but what a great prospect! I have a regular job that takes up a HUGE amount of my time. I do this with red eyes mostly late at night. I started this because I wanted a set of graphics on my own personal XR that I could not find anywhere. Funny thing is the bike became a canvas for designs and requested custom jobs. I still don't have a set on my own bike!
Profit? Yes, there is some. This is still America isn't it? However, it goes directly into my equipment, material and design time....so no...not really. I am one guy with graphics equipment and experience doing this. Since my first personal design this has turned into a hobby for me. I don't do any other bikes besides the XR. I don't have the time.
A huge thanks again to all of you who support my effort to bring unique graphics to XR owners. I'm going to bed.
