    This question came up several months ago. I think Olympic Powdercoating in Anaheim was recommended.

    I've heard from two mechanics at different stores that Olympic is the place to go.

    Olympic in Santa Ana. They did my SS what an awesome job. Turnaround time was 1 week and it only cost ~90 buck. I think its cheaper if you go with solid color.

    Yeah, like they said, Olympic.

    I just had my daughters frame done there. Reasonably fast, friendly and excellent work. Really, I can't comment on how happy I was with the work. Since they do frames for some manufacturers, they know how to mask off the frame so it isn't in places you don't want like inside the headtube, or in the BB.

    It cost $125 for me, but it was bubble gum pink with clear coat and the frame was already powder coated so it took some extra prep work.
