    Frame Painter, New Orleans Area?

    I'm looking for someone to paint a bicycle frame in the New Orleans area. Creative Cycle Works is not responding to emails, and their phone number doesn't work, so I'm guessing they are not around anymore. This leaves me with....who? Anyone know someone who can give my bike a profesisonal paint job in the New Orleans area?
    Can anyone give me a ride from Monterey to Big Bear on Wednesday or Thursday?

    Or maybe Dr. Deltron can squeeze you in.

    I have had a frame powdercoated in Harahan at a place called Kirkfield's. Cheaper and more durable than paint, but maybe not what you're looking for.

    There's an automotive paint shop in the Riverbend area, right next to Cooter Brown's, I believe. I know they paint motorcycles at a good price. Might be worth a visit to ask a few questions.

    If it's a really nice frame, I would bite the bullet and send it to Joe Bell.
    One thing about living in Santa Carla I never could stomach -- all the damn vampires.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I think I might try stopping by that motorcycle shop. I wanted to avoid shipping it if there is someone local. I'm only looking for a single color, and I can mask the thing for them.

    Biting bullets hurts my wallet. My wallet hurts enough.
