Can it be done? I'm painting my bike black and got some wheel paint to paint them as well. However, rather ignorant still and don't feel like screwing something up while taking offprint putting on the wheels.
I'm hoping I can just masking tape everything around the brakes and just paint the wheels without removing them.
1. Painting the wheels - Go for it! I did that on my lil' TW200. Masked off all the spokes & painted the rims w/ BBQ paint, looks WAY better!
2. Leaving the wheels on the bike - don't do it man! The wheels come off PDQ and there's no reason to risk getting overspray on anything else. You'll spend at least twice as much time just masking the wheels off the bike than what it takes to remove them - let alone masking everything assembled. Plus there's no way you'll get to all the nooks & crannies of the hub with them installed...
