Well, I was very fortunate to find a powder coat shop that painted my frame for the cost of two boxes of donuts and two cans of Christmas cookies. Basically, I got it done for free and I provided some appreciation. Anyway, after reading all of the thoughtfull comments and wholesome suggestions regarding my illogical plan to install some fake Italian frame decals I have since decided that was a bad idea. I did however, want something unique and different but certainly not FUJI. Before sending it to get painted I cut off all the excess cable guides, derailler tabs, shift lever boses and drilled the top tube for internal cable routing. So check it out! I wanted to keep with the theme of Japan.
