I've been searching for a cheap, but professional, powdercoater in the Boston area for my fixie frame/fork, and I finally found the place. They have a $200 minimun, BUT, the guy told me to just bring in 2 bikes and he'd do them both for $200, TOTAL! They have every color AND sandblast the factory/existing paint and pretreat the frame prior to powdercoating--all included in that price! The turnaround time is only 3-5 business days, and this place is just outside of Boston. Soooo, I'm looking for someone who wants their bike powdercoated too. $100 each, for the whole process, start to finish. This price is unheard of. I called just about every place in the phone book around here, and most quoted well over $100 for the powdercoating alone, and insisted the bike be dropped off completely clean/stripped of paint. Sandblasters quoted me anywhere from $25 to $125 to strip the frame! Don't miss this opportunity. Coat that Fixie in bulletproof powder! email me.
Isn't there a place in attleboro that'll do it for $40 or so?
Funny that you mention this. The place you are talking about is called SD Powdercoating. I emailed Steve two days ago about getting some work done and he has yet to get back to me. In December he quoted $40 for the powdercoat and $30 for the sandblast(optional). If he is still in business I will be sending him a frame sometime next week. I will let you all know how it works out.
DAMN thats cheap...
I dont think I can go ahead and do it right away, but I would love the info so I could get my bikes done later. You think you could swing that # to me?
Wow ! Are they a chain or independent? I wish i knew of something like that in the chicago Area.
i just got an e-mail from a place off of grand ave. about 3500W or so. they said they'll powdercoat for $80, and blasting is $40. A little more expensive, but it seems to be a pretty nice shop so you don't have to worry too much about them painting your threads and whatnot. let me know if you want the info, and i'll send it your way.
I got my conversion frame and fork done for $50 about 15 minutes outside of Pittsburgh. SingleSpeeDemon's was $80 after the guy ordered the powder. Both of them looked great, too. PM me or SingleSpeeDemon if you're in the area and you want the info.

Back to the topic. I called S+D and left a message, but haven't heard back from them.
Extreme Powdercoating in Merrimack NH has a great reputation and estimated $125-150 including stripping, decreasing and finishing.
I called Goodhues Custom Powdercoating in Derry, NH. Derry is just over the MA border off Rt 93. They said it would probably be $75-90, depending on color and condition, but would not be over $100. As they're closer than Merrimack, Attleboro, or Wareham that's where I plan to go.
Probably overkill for an old Trek 720 frame but it's a city bike and I want to see how it looks and holds up.
