I've been quoted £240 for powder coating for the following:

Wrinkle Red:
Frame
Swingarm

Mirror/gloss black:
Wheels
Yokes
side stand
centre stand
a few brackets etc

Wrinkle black:
Engine cases
couple of brackets etc

That includes blasting and cleaning.

Sounds ok to me, Just ask to see a sample first!
Just had some done by a small local company, and only cost £30. I might aswell have put a match to the money.
He made a complete F..k up of the parts.

So always seee a sample of there work first.

I now have to burn the coating off, then blast clean and send them out for coating.

The compay was based at Heatons Bridge on the way to Southport Lancs. DON'T USE THIS COMPANY. (my opinion only)

The firm I will be using is the one IED said about and it turns out it is the firm one of my old employers used when I worked in structural steel fabrication and they are going to charge me £90 to blast and coat the frame and swingarm the company name is Impact Coatings of Colchester

Those prices seem in line with what California firms are charging. Remember, there is a process of bead blasting or light sand blasting that is the first step in powder coating. It is time consuming. As is true of the painting process, the devil is in the prep work.

A nationwide seller of Chinese-made tools and machines sells powder coating equipment but folks don't have much luck with it at home. For starters, where is one going to get an oven big enough to bake a motorcycle frame?

25 pounds, that's cheap, I live in British Columbia, Canada and here they want $600.00 for frame and swing arm and I think that price has gone up lately

i can recommend a great powder coater in birmingham on the tyburn rd just off spagetti junction called labtab
they have every variation of every colour in matt ,satin and gloss smooth or crickle coat they also do a great wheel service as well, from complete strip, to polish and powdercat,
ive used them loads of times usually a 48 hr turn around and as a bonus they are as cheap as chips


this wheel was ready for scrap and it turned out fine
