Its a show piece. Installing all the engine and such will only cover up the artwork.

I love the idea of this! I can't wait to see what you come up with!
I saw this on my Ducati forum yesterday and loved it! Sharpie Edition Ducati | Sharpie Markers Official Blog

Then what's the point? Hang it on the wall as art?

Yes. the bike was built by someplace called the RatShop and the graphics artist that did the sharpie work is from Jet Set Airbrush.

In the second set of pics posted they are clearly showing off their work at a bike/car show.

It's a nice idea with some flaws. I have a few buddies that have done this to their sport bikes and with sunlight, regular Sharpies ink will start to turn purplish in color. Doesn't stay black.

The solution to get this look without fading and making it useable it to have an awesome airbrush artist do it with paint.

It has to be sealed up tight with clearcoat.

Doesn't automotive clear coat now have UV protectant? Or would the clear coat make the sharpie run? (I'm not a painter hence the dumb question)

Awsome looks , love it when people do their own thing instead of following suit... do you think they could do paint by numbers for this???

I believe they do but so does the paint under the clear coat. Sharpie Ink doesn't have any... it will turn purple and fade.... fast.

My friend was stoked about this helmet (first project) and after a month or two it was noticeably turning colors and after a year it was garbage and he has since had his helmet and bike done with stencil and airbrush. Looks the same but made with paint, not Sharpie.

Regardless of the sharpie vs paint, you have to be a **** talented artist to pull it off nicely.
