I have a nice spray gun, but for small jobs like these bikes it is so much easier to just use the rattle cans.
I swear by that stuff. I learned many years ago while trying to paint the tank of a Suzuki Savage that normal rattle can paint doesn't get along with gasoline...or engine heat. It's gotta be high temp and fuel resistant, and this stuff is the best out there.
