H20 Printers: Motorcycle Hydrographics

Motorcycle Graphics

Gas tanks are perhaps one of the most aesthetically noticeable components of any motorcycle so it’s no wonder that so many bikers get them painted to customize their bikes.

But repainting your custom gas tank or other motorcycle components such as fairings and wheels once they go out of style is an expensive proposition. H2O Printers, the new Hydrogrpahics subsidiary of Fastlane, the premier muscle car tuning shop, has the answer.

H2O Printers can apply custom Hydrographics to your gas tank and other motorcycle parts, providing an expensive, one-off look.

While custom skulls, flames and carbon fiber Hydrographics are the most popular, there are several other patterns with custom colors from which to choose, including brushed aluminum, camouflage, much more. All Hydrographics are removable and replaceable at any time.

Nick Field (Owner and Founder of Fastlane and H20 Printers) says: "Hydrographics designs for your bike are almost limitless. If you want to change the look of your motorcycle without breaking the bank, but looking like you did, we can make that happen."

Hydrographics transfer is a complex process that requires a professional transfer station, tank, hardware and products. A quick and simple explanation for those interested: First, a graphics film is laid in a giant specialized tank where it floats in a solution.

Then, after being thoroughly prepped and sprayed with an adhesive agent, the gas tank, or any item you wish to be hydro-dipped, is laid into the tank and the solution is meticulously applied.

Once the film is custom cut and formed to the motorcycle gas tank, it is sprayed with a resilient heavy-duty clear coat in a paint booth, ensuring longevity of the Hydrographics. The final result is a striking customized pattern that enhances the design of the bike at a fraction of the cost of carbon fiber.

Prices for H2O Printers Hydrographics vary depending on the scope of the project. Most items are completed within 24-72 hours of receipt. Please visit H2OPrinters.com for more information and to see the amazing Hydrographics projects already completed.
