I always assume that a repainted sportbike has seen the ground. Am I being unfair?
Thats probably right 99% of the time. Theres always that 1% exception to the rule. I usually paint mine because Im a painter and it costs me nothin but my time. I hate stickers! A good tell tail sign is if all the points that could contact the ground have either been replaced or damaged. Like the bar ends, mirrors, blinkers, and foot pegs!
