Motorcycle Paintwork


Our Passion

Proline have been painting motorcycles for well over 25 years. We have a vast knowledge and experience of all paint systems and processes used to replicate original paint schemes or produce one off individual designs.

With a large back catalogue of jobs spanning over 2 decades from Vintage BMW’s, Triumph, Norton, Classic Japanese and Royal Enfield to name but a few. Show winning paintwork is the norm here at Proline.

We paint bikes for a lot of the trade and restorers that do all the engineering but leave the paint to the experts. Many of our customers are owners club enthusiasts, some are investors or collectors but all are passionate about their machines. We share this passion and strive to produce the best possible result on every job.

Working with solvent, water base and Cellulose paints on vintage machines where required. We can achieve any finish from Candy to Matt or Satin even patina when required. We also offer plastic welding to fairing splits and damage, steel and alloy welding to frames and brackets.

Our in house colour spectrometer camera gives state of the art colour matching.

Paintwork is not just restricted to the main tank and mudguards of your bike. Component painting is also a large part of our workload. Stripping, blasting and painting items such as frames, brackets, airboxes, bars, and suspension components etc… the list goes on.

All work is guaranteed.

Classic Motorcycle Projects

  • Marlboro Paris to Dakar Replica

    This BMW R1200 GS adventure was 1 of 2 painted for Wollaston BMW Motorrad dealership. Based on the 1986 Paris-Dakar rally bike ridden by the tiny Belgium racer Gaston Rahier. At 5`4 Gaston was a tiny man that could only mount the giant BMW by running alongside the bike feathering the clutch and sidestepping onto it whilst moving. The bike we see here was subsequently sold by Wollaston BMW but brought back to us by its owner for minor paintwork caused when it was kicked by a donkey whilst on Safari in Marrakech.

  • BMW R nineT Retro

    Another retro style paint scheme to coincide with current trends and café racer bike fashion. This R nineT has subtle silver coachlines and fades into existing black metallic paintwork.

  • Triumph Cub

    Owned from new by our customer this lovely little Cub had been sitting for many years unused when he decided to restore it to its original showroom condition. Commissioned to carry out the paintwork Proline stripped, blasted and painted all relevant components and matched the original colours. Now restored to concours condition and back with its proud owner.


    Magni is one of those motorcycling names, like Egli, that hovers on the periphery of stardom. Egli is inseparable from Vincent, but Magni is associated with MV Agusta, Honda and Moto Guzzi. Some of the earliest Magnis, though, had BMW power. The MB1 shown above uses a heavily modified airhead taken from a BMW R80, bored out to a litre. Paint stripped and colour changed by Proline to the correctly matched original red. Now part of an enthusiast's BMW bike collection.

  • Yamaha RD350

    Now these 1980`s bikes have become highly desirable and are rapidly increasing in value more and more people are choosing to restore them. This complete set of bodywork was brought to us for restoring and repainting. Matching the bikes original blue and reproducing the original graphics was the challenge. Now looking completely factory fresh like it did in the 80`s

  • BMW S1000RR GoldBet

    Paintwork done by Proline to produce this replica of the BMW S1000RR as used by the BMW world superbike team in 2013 and 2014 and ridden by racers Chaz Davies and Marco Melandri. An awesome looking bike.

  • BMW R1200 GS Adventure

    Another Paris-Dakar replica this time of the team BMW Gauloises bike ridden by Jimmy Lewis in the 2001 Paris to Dakar rally. A complex design to mask and replicate but with great results creating a unique 1 off bike.

  • BMW R nineT Gulf Paint

    Looking for a classic style paint scheme to compliment and individualise this retro style R nineT. The Gulf racing paint scheme was born and worked very well gaining many admirers.
