EHBE 2010 Pt 3: Etoe, Pegoretti and other paint jobs (+ photo gallery + video)

Have a look too at videos of each day of show including people behind the bikes

One of the great things about a bike show is seeing all the different colour combinations and paint techniques available.

At EHBE, there was everything from the basic one-shot powder coat to masterpieces created through hundreds of hours of painstaking masking and airbrushing.

Here's a selection of just some of the eye candy at EHBE; there were just too many great-looking bikes on display to feature them all, but this selection showcases the work of the painting and finishing experts who quite rightly, deserve a spot of their own.

And as if that weren't enough to get you drooling, German film production company Ertzui Film has produced short videos of each of the three days of the show, including interviews with some of the people behind the bikes on display, so sit back and enjoy.
