Great idea!

Iíll add a recent discovery: Santiam Powder Coating in Scio, OR. Phone: 541-791-6515. Email: SatiamPC@gmail.com. Roy Tollefson is the owner.

Last summer I facilitated the coating of a batch of four frame sets for our local co-op. One of which was my vintage English touring bike with ornate Nervex lug work. Iíve had about Ĺ dozen frames coated over the years and this was the best. Itís very smooth and glossy plus the definition around the lugs is excellent. Pix attached.



The cost was $90 each as a special to the non profit, community service co-op. All of these bikes were the same color. I suspect that individual frame sets in a custom color would be ~$120.

This is a small operation and they were hit hard by the pandemic issues and illness. This slowed the turn around, but was well worth the wait.

Cheers,

Van
