Has anyone here ever gotten their silver aluminum polished components anodized black?
I'm lusting after these super burly long-reach brakes on VeloOrange, but they're polished silver, and won't match my Rival group. I'm building a custom bike, and want everything just *so*, so I'm willing to see what it would take to make these brakes work.
I know anodizing can affect the thickness of surfaces, so... is this even possible to do on brakes after-market, or will it require re-tapping all the screw holes, re-machining all the moving surfaces, etc.? Or is that something that can be anticipated for and worked around?
What type of place should I go to for this? Say, a custom motorcycle fabrication/machine shop? Anyone done this that can recommend a place by name?
Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.
