    Why are you powder coating it? It looks pretty good as is.

    Just say no.... to unnecessary powdercoats.

    In about five years, there are going to 2.6 million unidentified bikes that are the result of unnecessary paint jobs.

    The Bikeforums server will permanently crash under the weight of "identify my powdercoated frame" threads.

    You will never, ever find a paint job that will look as good as your bike does now. Very cool. Leave it as is and love it.

    C'mon, it'll be fun when someone posts pics of the frame here years from now, asking if it's a PX-10!

    What color are you thinking?

    I believe that Stronglight is in Albuquerque. He might know of a local powdercoater.

    I agree that you shouldn't do it, though. Half the coolness of old Peugeots is in the graphics.

    Ditto. Maybe put a chainstay protector on it to cover up those nicks, but it looks pretty nice as is.

    My only suggestion would be that if you decide to powdercoat it, do it in the original color and only then would I do it if I had the exact graphics to replace the cool ones that are on it now.

    But, like most here, I would just uber clean and polish then touch up here and there...I think its a pretty bike as is.

    If it just comes down to wanting blingy, then find a beater no name frame to powdercoat.

    that's my humble opinion.

    Call or email around. If you email, just take note of the quality of replies. There are guys who've done this and they'll know what to say about what they do.

    Powder coating may not prevent rust

    HI,
    I was considering powder coating my Vintage Bike till I read on another web page about some powder coatings allow rust formation under the powder coating, it maynot be the most air tight finish . nor does it reduce that galvanic effect of mositure and weather?
    Another problem maybe the over use of sandblasting that may actually damage the frame?
    So Ive decided to leave mine original.
    Doug

    There's no need to paint that bike. It is unusual, and nice looking as-is. I'd leave it alone.

    Leave it alone.
    but my pal at Awesomepowdercoat.com does a nice job. He's not in Albuquerque, he's in Ohio. But he grew up in Los Alamos and went to school in Cruces.
