    Anyone in RVA paint frames?

    I just got my Surly frame set in and I'm thinking about getting it painted. Anyone know anyone who paints frames for a decent price. Would any car/motorcycle places do it? Thanks.

    Get it powdercoated. Just about all powdercoat places will do, and have done, bikes.

    I am in vb/norfolk but go up to rva sometimes. I do custom airbrushing, leafing and pinstriping if you ever need any ridiculousness like that.

    Hey cool! I go to VB/NN every so often. Have a winter project on an old frame. Do you blast or plate too? Definitely want to talk to you about painting and lettering a frame.

    There's a framebuilder in Ashland who also paints them. Can't recall his name off the top of my head. Might check the yellow pages, I think he's there.

    New custom builder in RVA=Booger Bikes, studio not up yet but he is cool. Look for Booger Bikes on MySpace or www.sprintclubrva.org or ask around in Rowletts or ReCycles or come out to SouthSideSpeedway this Sunday or race SprintClub ****.
