Gonna go big time and pay the man $$ for fresh paint job / powder coating . Do i stay basic with black or go fancy with cool pear green? Fork is new and black so gonna keep it so.

Repaint any color you wish, Go.


I have a friend who owns a powder coating business, the bag of powder is the cheap part,
the prep time application skill, and heat, electricity, is what costs.

Around me a basic high gloss black powdercoated frame and fork is $90.
Pearl powdercoat colors are $180.

Twice the cost, but only $90 more for some fun color. I would take fun color over straight black every time, but this is why there are all the colors in the rainbow for us to choose from- to each their own.

Get what you like and post up pics...especially a before and after!

Do both the frame and fork to match.
