    Not really. Powdercoating's not as thick as you'd think...a little thicker than paint, sure, but it's not like there's a quarter-inch of product on there. Even with a multilayer job, the "stack"...

    A good powdercoater won't need to be told what to mask off on a bike..they'll know what to do. They can mask very precisely, far better than for paint.

    The pulley on my '74 was also on the lower seat tube, rather than up by the seat. On my rebuild, I'm putting it down low again, rather than move it up.
