Since it is aluminum alloy it could be anodized.
Bul called the shop, they said it is not all alu, but has some other metals in the mix, so it is a no go.
He didnt yet see the arm to confirm this.
Anyone anodized their arm?
If it would prove to be a no go, which type of coloring is doable for it.
Would powder coating hold on efectively through mud, branches, stones, not falling off in patches?
Soon expect frame in black, also powder coated.

Sorry, I had a moment. So is this a show bike? I have seen some really great examples at the NYC Bike show. I wouldn't want to mess it up in the dirt though.
I checked on the steel/no steel question and found this: http://www.anodizing.org/faqs.html
I googled around the web a bit and couldn't find anyone selling something like you mentioned. You may be an inovator! Definately post pics if you do it.
