I feel entitled to, again, join the ranks of those who can rave about the work done by Brent Budgor. This marks my 5th bike done by The Vintage Vendor-- certainly not the last. I can go on by saying that over the last few years I've been dealing with him, I feel honored to have established a friendship with such a dedicated man. From the very beginning, there was a level of comfort when we first made contact. It was through an ebay auction, I was high bidder on paint service he offered back then. I was a bit uneasy thinking about sending all of my steel Norton tins from California to a complete stranger in Vermont. That is, until we spoke on the phone. Now, 5 motorcycles later, and a few more planned, I will never use another painter for any of my projects as long as Brent is willing to do the work. For the price (which is way too reasonable in my opinion) I get an absolutely professional, mirror-like, "Caution! Wet Paint!", better than factory paint job. In the past, I have paid way more with the other guy, only to wait and wait up to 3 months for them to do a poor job and have to re-paint at the cost of more time and lost momentum. Brent's work is incredible from the start and has remained consistent as long as I have been using him. I've never felt like I waited at all because I am kept current with photo emails detailing the progress. In a couple of weeks time, a box shows up and I only wish I could shake the man's hand when I open it. A great human being and a gifted painter. Thanks for everything!
