Roma Custom Bike is the first web-series about custom motorcycles made in Italy and distributed world wide both in Italian and English. The show starts from Custom Cez's desire to document his bike's restoration process. It was supposed to be a simple docu-tutorial, shot with a single camera so that he could keep it as a memory of passionate and creative work.

How to apply gold and silver leaf - DIY Tutorial - ep 17 eng - Roma Custom Bike

Custom Cez applies some diy silver leaf on his gas tank.

In this

episode we explore the process of applying a diy "gold leaf" or in this instance "silver leaf".

To watch the episodes were we prepared the gas tank using two tone powder coating click the following links:

Custom Cez builds a diy burnishing brush using a pencil, some cotton and a piece of felt. With the tool he proceeds to etch an engine turn pattern on the silver leaf.For the size (glue) Custom Cez has picked the "Fast dry gold size" from "1 shot", the project is pretty small so the quick drying time of this size is perfect.

Cez lays the size first and then the silver leaf on the design, once done removes the excess leaf with a make up brush.

Thanks to Jake from Barn Storm Cycles ( for the cool t-shirt and the awesome support!

What did we do:

- Brushing on the size
- Laying of the silver leaf (gold leaf)
- Removal of excess leaf from the gas tank
- Making of burnishing brush from scratch
- Burnishing engine turn pattern on the leaf

Made in Rome, Italy we take a look at an European approach to modifying and customizing an Harley Davidson with Custom Cez, an amateur customizer in his home shop.
