I know how you feel. Sometimes, a powder coat is simply new life, at a reasonable cost.
Welcome to the forum.

No ones going to give you flap about PC'ing a rusty "fairly modern" cruiser frame.
Nothing like the shiny.

Hey! What's this doing in C&V?

It looks like a klunker to me. That's vintage.

Yes! It has been a blast! I just went with it...not really knowing what I wanted to end up with. It had to be something that I would enjoy riding, even for a bit of distance so out came the more modern parts...

Nicely done and actually pretty cool. Not likely to see anything like it running around.

Nice looking clunker! The powdercoat adds a new lease on life to an old steel frame. That's going to be a fun ride.
