Steve Gardner is a friend of mine who I met many years ago. He is a spray painter by trade. Cyclist by life. Combining these passions Steve has decided to start up his own business; custom spray painting bicycles.
I sat down with Steve to ask him about the new business venture he’s putting together.
Steve has spent his life working in the auto re-finishing trade, and has worked in the industry a total of 23 years now. He has a passion for riding and like many of us lives and dreams bikes and told me “After painting a couple of bikes for friends I could see a way I could make a difference with my skills. Spray painting is both a hobby and a passion of mine, and there aren’t that many places in Melbourne where you can go to get a custom spray paint job on your bike.” – SG
Let’s face it, we want the best for our bikes, and getting a custom spray paint for your bike is the ultimate way of looking after the one you love. Before contacting Steve, give some thought to what you want your dream bike to look like. Once you’ve decided on the colour you want, then contact Steve to discuss your options.
Steve only uses the highest quality sprays, predominately using PPG. Ceramic clear is also an option. The process involves a full rub down and removing any chips and scratches from the frame. Applying a 2-Pac primer and multiple colours, logos stripes, etc. followed by a flow coat. The end result is that you have a bike that all of your friends are envious about.
If you have a retro, steel or alloy frame, Steve can bring life back to your bike. He can reproduce any of the original colours and source original style decals. If paint removal is required these will be soda blasted. Re-chroming is also available.
Steve wants to do a job that he would be proud to call his own bike.
