As the title suggests i got tired of looking at my nasty old rusty frame. I tore it down and had the frame powder coated, along with some engine covers and such. Hope you like it. :ride::moon:

This is the frame before.

Thanks, it was definitely expensive. Well worth it to me. (just don't ask the misses). I'm getting ready to send out my ricochet skidplate , flatland radiator guards , and frame guards to powder coat.

that will definitely add to the color sceme. Its nice because you never see that orange color, but it looks awesome with blue
