Painting My R100R

Hello all-
I have a purple R100R and I want to get it painted black. I'm going to get a quality, professional job done and I will make sure they use a stock BMW color code. I'm also thinking of adding a nice white pinstripe to complete the look...

My question is: Will painting over the origional factory paint effect the value (negatively) or the future value of the machine? I hope to keep this bike for a very long time and I would hate to find out in the future that painting it drastically reduced it's value.

Thanks in advance for answering my question.

Line-X is the way to go! No worries about scratches or cleaning. Survives sliding down the highway at 70 MPH also. Painting your R100R with a quality paint job should not affect resale value at all.

It's your bike and you plan to keep it for a long time, so paint it any damn color you want. Who cares about resale value, it's a motorcycle, not an investment.

BTW I think black would be much better than purple unless you're Prince...umm... I mean that guy who looks like Prince but no one really knows what his name is anymore.

You don't need to use the special very expensive BMW black, for the most part black is black. When we tried to get a paint code from Harley for a customers bike they told us we needed to get thier paint that cost 2X as much so we just took one of his old parts and color matched it and painted with normal paint. There's no difference in the paint, it just cost more.

Try Bob Wark at http://www.warkshop.com/ I have used his service to paint my K-RS, I took a tour of his place and came away very impressed with the gentleman and his work ethic and quality work.
