Give your bicycle your own paint design

Step 1: Things to Bay

All this project cost only 2.5€
Black metal spray paint 1€
Red metal spray paint 1€ and
Masking tape 0.5€


I choose red,and black colors for mine bicycle but you can choose whichever color you like

Step 2: Before Painting

I have painted my bike 2year ago but the paint was damaged so I decided to re-paint it
This is have it looked,yeah I know Horrible!

Step 3: Clean and Prepare to Paint

Before you start painting your bike wheels you should clean them as better as possible
If you leave dust and other dirt the painting result will be worse.

Step 4: Add Masking Tape

Start adding masking tape to the places that you don't want to paint or making paint lines,and other painting methods
I used mine to separate 3 different colors, the original wheel color,red and black one

You should add tape really carefully

Step 5: Be Ready to Paint It

After insalling masking tape,first you'll have to shake your spary paint and start painting
Shake it about 30seconds before use
I used the black color first

Step 6: The Red One

I continued painting with red color

Step 8:

Painting another parts of bicycle

I used magazine paper to " catch" unused spary so it wouldn't cause any mistake in painting

Step 9: Painting Dynamo

I painted dynamo too.

Step 10: Removing Tape

After you have painted your wheel you have to wait for 15 minutes than check if you did any mistake during painting,if yes repaint them
Then wait for other 20-30 minutes and carefully start removing the masking tape

Step 11: Some Pics

Is it just me or does your bike have no back brake? Also, doesn't the paint get worn off by the brake pads as you use the bike?

It has back brakes
It brakes by rotating pedals backwards
