QUALITY MOTORCYCLE PAINTING AT REASONABLE PRICES

Postby jbbudgor » Sun Jun 21, 2009 7:25 am

Hi Guys,
My name is Brent Budgor. I have a small motorcycle painting business, The Vintage Vendor, here in Vermont. I strive hard to do quality work at a fair price. Among the many Nortons I have done, I've painted both Jerry Doe's Interstate a couple of years ago and more recently his "Blue Stripe Commando" on the home page of this website. If you have painting needs, I hope you will consider my services for your Norton or any other brand of bike. I use top quality PPG materials and am dedicated to the craft and your satisfaction. Feel free to check my website (http://www.vintage-vendor.com), drop me an e-mail or give me a ring on my cel 802 839-9439. The site contains many high quality photos of Norton tins as well as many other brands in my Updated Gallery Section. GENERALLY SPEAKING I CAN HAVE YOUR BIKE COMPLETED IN 2 TO 3 WEEKS ONCE I RECEIVE YOUR PARTS AND HAVE MANY HAPPY CUSTOMERS THAT CAN ATTEST TO THAT. Happy Riding, Brent

I recently had my 1973 Commando 750 tank and side panels painted by Brent. I'm extremely happy with the results. They were painted black with gold logo and pinstripes. Black is a very difficult color to get right, but Brent's work was perfect. No orange peel, no runs, no flaws. He was easy to work with and provided pictures of the entire process. I highly recommend his painting service.

PLEASE NOTE, THIS TESTIMONIAL WAS SENT TO ME AND I JUST PASTED IT FOR THE OWNER.
I waited years until I found someone trustworthy to paint my 57 Harley-Davidson XL. Brent Budgor is an expert. He did a great job and kept me informed every step of the process. The communication could not have been better. Issues arose with the rear fender that I had overlooked. Brent was very fair in dealing with those issues and even found a way to reduce my return shipping costs. I will be using Brent again.

Brent,
All I can say is WOW!!!!!!!!!!! You are the consummate professional. I have never dealt with such a polite, fast, great communicating business man in my life. You have exceeded all of my expectations. The tank and side covers on my Norton look outstanding! I can't wait to put them on my bike. How about that color? I think it is really unique. It will positively transform my bike. I hope you will change the tint slightly when you start doing metal flake for the boys up north! I would be pleased to write you a testimonial for your web site. You are an amazing guy and a talented artist.Thanks again for a job well done.
Sincerely,
Glenn Scanlon

Brent at Vintage-Vendor just painted my 77 Triumph 750. It is a work of art, returning a banged up ugly paint job tank to a stock paint that is better than showroom original. He sent pictures every few days so I could follow the work as it progressed. His attention to detail is what the bike owner wants. I got more than I paid for, and recommend him to all bike owners that want the best quality work with no delays.

Just recieved two sets of tanks that I sent out for Paint from Brent Budgor in Vermont.
He does business as The Vintage Vendor and on ebay as vintage-vendor.
Wow the stuff looks great. Side covers look great. Interstate tank looks fantastic.
I saw his ads on ebay and looked. Then saw Jerry Doe's site and endorsement called and worked out a price with Brent.
For any one in North East or East or any where for that matter, Brent should be checked when deciding on paint. For the North East guys plan at trip to Vermont, and go drop you stuff off, you meet Brent and develop a trust thing, (cool Ford Galaxie) you see his work and know that your stuff will come out great. You can then speak to him and mark out any custom stuff that you want, as I did. He will send you progress photos as things go on. When he sent the finished photos I felt like a kid at Christmas.
I had Brent put a little Norton "N" on the front sportster style fender between the strips on the sides. I was very afraid that the N would be to large, it looks great, perfect size.
I had Brent do a somewhat CNW style on one set and stock style on the other. I had him use double stripes throughout for 850 as opposed to single for 750.
In my black w/ gold pinstripes he does the stuff up in full gold, applies stripes and decals, paints them black and removes stripes and decals.
Then clear coats.
You end up with a beautiful job that when you run your hands over is smooth with no bumps from decals.
If you want dead on stock with raised decals, he can do that for you also, but why would you? (here comes the hate mail)
I Caswell epoxy coated the tanks first before I sent them. Up to you and Brent.

Nice guy, fair deal! PPG paints
Photos of finished bike soon, I hope to God! Pretty much a CNW job on a budget.

Brent just completed my tank and side covers for my 74 Commando. I can't imagine a better job. Tank looks better than the pictures he sent and the pictures were fabulous. I brought them to him in mid-July and it took approximately 3 weeks. He sends frequent updates with many, many pictures. Great person to deal with and reasonable prices. Well worth the trip to Newfield, VT and totally professional service.

Brent has just painted my Aluminium Featherbed Tank and Fiberglass oil tank... What a great artist, and what a great guy to deal with!!! The tank was hand made 30 years ago, and was always slightly "wavey" and had various minor dents. It has come back gleaming with a perfect deep black and gold paint job, that is dead flat and glistens. The oil tank was brand new, but not very flat... now it is perfect! I am full of praise for this guy, and recommend him to paint any Norton paint job... believe me you will not be disappointed, and at a very reasonable price. Brent is one of the nicest guys that I have ever dealt with, with great communications, sending loads of pictures as the job progressed, and completing the job very quickly, less than 2 weeks from shipping to being complete. Now I want to go to Vermont just to see him working!!! All I want now is to see my Tanks on Brent's web site!!

At the risk of sounding like everyone else that has written about Brent’s work (Vintage-Vendor), I would just like to say that he is indeed a very talented painter. He is also someone that I have found that takes a genuine interest in what his customers want to achieve, visually, when they decide to paint motorcycle parts. I spoke with several painters before discovering Brent. Before I had even agreed to send my parts to him for painting, Brent and I had communicated several times by email so that he could understand what I wanted, and he could provide me some ideas as well. Brent also provided me with dozens of photos of my tank and side covers at various stages of completion. In my experience, that is extraordinary. When I received my parts back from Brent I was blown away by the beautiful results. His work is excellent, and you’ll find his price is reasonable as well. I would recommend Brent to anyone, without reservation.
