Powdercoated mine a semi gloss black - turned out real nice I think. With your color scheme, I think a black frame would look really good as well.

Wow that bike is perfect:worthy: . How much did you pay for the powdercoat? I've been messing around on photoshop with my bike lately and Black rims and frame may be in my near future.

about $200, but hawaii is more expensive than what you could get it done for there i'm sure.

btw, a powdercoated frame is not high maintenence, just the opposite - just wash and dry off like anything else on the bike

I remember drooling over that frame when I first joined this forum. Extremely nice work man it looks great. How does it look now? Does that bike see a lot of dirt?

I dont have it anymore. I sold it to a friend. It doesn't look like it did then, however he really didn't like the polished look. i will polish it like that on my 2010 when I get it, then anodize it black.
