I hope I am not stepping on any toes here... if I am, let me know and I will delete my post.

A friend sent me to this site.

I started powder coaitng things for myself and some friends.

Well to make a long story short, money has become pretty tight aournd the house. So, I am offering up some simple coating to others that may be interested.

Right now I am limited by oven space, but hopefully not for long. I cannt do wheels quite yet.

But, here is a picture of two of some things I have done.

I am putting a set of F2 clip-ons on the Hawk this winter and I was interested (if it is the best way to go) in having them cleaned up and powdercoated. What kind of prices are we looking at?

Yeah, what about a single sided swingarm? Can your oven handle that?

Also, how much to powdercoat in the black mini-tex:

Set of stock rearsets
Stator cover
Clutch cover
Brake and Clutch levers

What's your turn around time, and do you sandblast all parts prior to coating?

Thanks,

It would depend on the powder/color you want. But, just to give a ball park price... I would start at $30 plus shipping back to you (if needed).

Send me a pm with what you would like and we could go from there.

Powder coating would last a lot longer than painting them for sure.

Thanks

Do you have capacity to do a small frame perhaps? I have a YSR-50 frame I'd like to powercoat at some point...including a swingarm and other tidbits...
With my current set up, I would need dimensions to be sure on it. But. I think it would fit.

Now that the weather is not co-operating... I will have more indoor time to start the new oven. Then it would easily fit.

Thanks

A swing arm should fit fine. But, I would like dimensions before I promise anything.

Ballpark figure... $65 for the items you listed above(minus swingarm), plus shipping if needed. If you would like it done, send me a pm and we can work out the details.

Turn around time is usually one a day or two. I like to get stuff done as soon as I can. Doesnt do me or you any good sitting at my house.

Price includes all prep work... bead blasting. All I ask is that for parts that come in contact with grease or oil, that you clean them up a little for me. A nice spray and wipe down with parts cleaner/brake clean usually does the trick.

I mask off, or plug anything that should not be coated. Like bearing surfaces and threaded holes.

Thanks!

Here are a few of the powders I use.

Standard colors. Single coat.


Metallics. Usually require a top coat, but not always.


Large flake metaalics, and anohter few differant ones.


Texture colors.


Candy top coat colors.

How about a set of wire wheels off a 1964 Triumph TRW. There about 19x3 and 19x4 and I want them to have a chrome look. Can you do it and how much?

I am sorry to say that I wont be able to do wheels until into December or so. (new oven with a nice rack to hang wheels)

Then, it wont be a problem.

Thanks!

If you know the powder, I can get the same one they use.

For frames and wheels, I would really like to hold off till the larger oven is ready. It would make the job so much eaier for me.

As far as color goes. I have quite a few color samples to match with. And there are many more I can get. One of them should be a real close match.

And if someone wants an EXACT match, it is possible to get it done... but that is way expensive.

What's your ETA on the new oven? With winter approaching, I have all the time in the world to get these 2 frames done.
