    I don't know anything about them, but I always see www.cpfinishes.com advertised on craigslist. I think it's about $100 for powdercoating the whole frame.

    If you're looking for paint - as opposed to powdercoat - you might try getting in touch with Johnny Coast. I'm not sure if he does his own paint work or not, but he would definitely be able to point you in the right direction.

    Will do. I just noticed that I have to work monday (my one day off) So im going to see if I can run in an hour late so I can still get a price quote and see the colors he offers. He did say it could take a week for turnaround.. Thats not bad.

    Bruce here does NICE work. Panels, decal clear coats,
    just about anything. Many Kogswell owners report
    good things.

    from Johnny Coast:

    My suggestion is to go to dave at "Bike Works" @ ridge and rivington do the job. Tell him that I sent you!!!!! I know that occasionally he does repaint and I happen to know that his painter does a good job. If your really into restoring classic bikes try "Joe Bell" (google his name), he might have clues to where you can get period decails and all that ... But you'll pay good money for his services, word has it that he's the best in the industry.
    well, good luck. If your having further trouble, write back.
