Hi Folks,
I'm looking for a reputable painter to repaint my 1969 Victor Special gas and oil tank and place waterslide decals under the clear coat. I'm willing to spend some money to have this done right (yes, I know that that the OEM VS would never have decals like this, but this is how I'd like it). I did send an email to Joe Abbate's Cycle Therapy(I found him on the internet).
Thank you all for your assistance in advance. It's taken me 20 years to finally get this bike (my dad's old bike) sorted and ready to go back together!
Dan

I'd suggest Blake Conway in Vista. I've had him paint several VS tanks for me over the years and highly recommend him. You should be able to Google up his contact info, I don't have it in front of me right now.

He does it right, even the hand pinstriping.

I also dislike the Vinyl decal the factory used with the yellow border, I had an edgeless decal made. Still Vinyl but my painter said he would cover it so no edge would be seen, he was true to his word.

I've decided to with Vintage Vender Brent Budgor. He is willing to paint the BSA logo (like Kommando's above). Yes, it won't be stock, but the sample he showed me on his webpage looks great! I'll be sending the tank tomorrow and will post a before and after picture after it is finished.
