Gunny's Carbon Fiber Paintwork

"Sean Lezotte and I have been good friends since 1989 when I was referred to him to remove some highway paint from my CBR600 F2 and helmet that dripped down on me while riding under a bridge. Since that time Sean has done five full custom paint jobs on my bikes which several even won best paint awards during shows. During my club racing days the "Desert Camo" job on my 748R turned many heads on the track immediately prior to my own deployment to Iraq in 2004. Pictures of theses bikes are incuded in the slideshow above.

When I purchased my 1199 Panigale Tri-Colore in 2012 I was personally disappointed in the route Ducati had taken with their choice of carbon fiber finish and asked if Sean could just do a nice glossy clear coat over the matte finish to make it match up with all of my glossy Shift Tech Carbon which I thankfully purchased through owner Guido and his fantastic customer service. Little did I know what Sean had in store for me!

This custom carbon fiber fender is a true testament to the extraordinary detail Sean puts into every job that leaves his shop. I have referred several other Panigale riders to him (click to read about Jon's Ducati Panigale Track Bike) via the Ducati forums and they too have seen how truly eye catching his creations are! I absolutely love the inclusion of the red stripe, green lines, golden pearl ghosting, and hand painted logos (NOT clear coated decals!) Thank you once again my friend for an outstanding work of art that hopefully many more Ducati owners will strive for in years to come! "
