The frame was powder coated free of charge.

My wife is a buyer for a filtration company so when she sent her companies filter parts away for powder coating, somehow my frame got mixed up with them. Hmmm can't think how that could have happened

I know in SoCal you can get a frame powdercoated for about $100. I've had several bicycles and a few moto frames done.

The frame had to be shot blasted quite a bit first as the previous owner had decided to hand paint the bike in black hammerite. I plugged the oil holes with a film of grease then bunged them up with silicon and then finaly taped all round the thread with masking tape. When I got it back the taped peeled off easy and the silicon pulled out in a complete plug. I can't see anyway that any bits got in there during the process but just to be sure I will run some oil though it a few times
