Nationwide powder coating - Methuen, MA

Like the 'pike itself, Pike Powder was very expensive, so I shopped around. Northern MA has some industry still left. These guys do paint for working machines, not just the clean-handed urban crowd.

So glad I went to these people. I think this was in the $200 range. They know how to deal with bikes, and masked off all the necessary bits without any fuss. They even left a cable I'd threaded through the fork to pull dynamo wire through. Awesome work, and we chatted on the phone first, so I got in and out quick: took about 2 weeks turnaround. I also had them do a motorcycle frame/swingarm and another bike frame as well. All went fine.
Owner & co-founder, Cycles René Hubris. Unfortunately attaching questionable braze-ons to perfectly good frames since about 2015. With style.
