I saw this bike in Mississippi. It was painted with Rhino liner (truck bed liner). The thing looked very cool!!!! :clap
The owner was wacking / slamming the bottom of his boot on the fender!!!! :yikes Did not even leave a mark!!! :eek:
It has a sort of wrinkle finish (not unlike the Nighttrain air filter covers).
When you consider you can buy this stuff is all sorts of colors to match OEM colors for the trucks.... It has some possibilties.
I asked if it has been tried on engine parts and he said "not yet".
I woulder how it would hold up to the heat of the heads or jugs?
Huummmm.... :rolleyes:

What a cool look, textured gun metal.....and you can carry a toolbox on your tank and it won't slide around!

In one of my truck magazines a guy painted his whole Jeep. never has to worry about scratching it. Looks pretty cool as well as this bike.

This might be the begining of a new paint trend. :smoke

Yeah....industrial custom, and rhino liner does come in several colors.....I knew a contractor here in town that had an F-350 4 WD van and it had some cancer and dents/scratches general wear and tear from being a work truck....well he got a roll of black astro turf and completely covered the van....looked killer, specially when he added the sidepipes

I'm gonna paint everything in my life with that stuff...house, cars, bike, children, pets, and so on.

I just want to state from experience that while Rhino makes a decent liner, Line-X makes a better one. If any of you are looking for spray-on liners, take the time to check out both brands. You will see the difference. I have seen Rhinos peel and their finnish is much less uniform than the Line-X.

Line-X is also used to coat the concrete pillars in bomb resistant buildings including the rebuilding of the Pentagon. I have used and worked with trucks that have both BTW.

My diesel truck comming in next month is headding strait to the line x shop and the idea that a future build on a bike could benefit from a spray on never crossed my mind. Neat idea.

One of my buds has his honda chop painted that way. I thought he was a kook when I first saw it 4yrs. ago, but I've been seeing it pop up on bikes within the past year or 2. I know sometimes he has a pain in the ass time getting stuff like bird shit off of it. Maybe cause he's lazy and lets it set in for a few days/weeks first. oh well, to each his own.

Who woulda thunk? I like the look. Reminds me of a friend who painted his Ford van with flat latex via a roller in the 70s...utilitarian.

There's a guy here in my town who's got a little yamaha rat painted in that stuff. Personally I think it looks like hell. :frownthre

But the bike in the thread starter looks a lot better then the 'round town rat here. Maybe it has it's place on a bike, but I wouldn't do it to my tank and tins.

chida66 is correct. linex is much better stuff. my friend put linex on his truck bed and it has lasted very well. he also used rino liner inside his off road jeep and it is good but is not even close to the linex.

Sheet!!!!!!! I think I like that.. Like to see it up close and personal. Been thinking of doing my Ironhead in a flat or semi-flat black. This just gives me something else to think about..sheesh. I just can't think THIS much...I'm retired now..Need to check out this "Line X" stuff now too. :smoke

The bike that parks next to me, a new Dyna, he's got it on the primary case cover, frame, belt cover and on the tanks. It looks surprisingly good.

Maybe because this thread is 2 years old.

You should see the Mythbusters episode where they use it to protect a pickup from bomb blasts. It was pretty cool the truck actually stayed in one piece while the other one without Rhino blew apart.

I would be worried that it would hold in the heat on engine parts.

If you ever did paint your bike with that stuff ... can you imagine the problems you would have if you ever wanted to remove it for a new paint job!

You would be kicking yourself in the ass over and over!

I think it would be a good idea to rhino line the outside of the bed of a pick up truck. That way when I try to get things out of my toolbox while I'm wearing my tool belt, it won't scratch up the outside.
