I'm curious. I've always been one to customize vehicles i own.. including paint. Before I sent one of my bikes to the shop I had numerous objections:
1. people pay less for painted bikes (if you want to sell)
2. people will think you dropped it if you paint it
3. you won't get as much for your bike if you want to sell because people prefer used bikes that are as close to stock as possible
personally i don't like most stock-looking bikes; too flashy.. i don't like all the brand/model stuff etc on there, and most colours i don't find appealing..
what's your take? do you care if it's been painted? prefer? prefer not? thoughts?
