Winter is coming. Send me your worn out parts for powder.

Postby thatkid » Tue Sep 07, 2010 1:21 pm

Alright guys, in about 2 weeks my bigger oven will be done. (I hope). This oven is 4'x3'x2' This means 400 owners are in luck. Sadly 600 owners are still out of luck. This "luck" is in terms of coating frames. A 400 frames is about as big as I can go. Might be able to fit a 1000 frame too. Don't have one on hand to check. Wheels, bolts, rearsets, covers, etc. You name it and I can give it the personal touch it deserves.

I know some of you guys are also car guys. I can do those parts as well.

Bicycles are your thing?? That's cool, send them my way for some love. I used to race them so I'm very comfortable around them. I'll give you that frame that will stand out in a crowd.

All work is done in house. You deal with me and only me. I don't farm anything out. Your part will arrive to me and I will strip it, prep it, coat it, wrap it, and ship it back. This saves a huge amount of hassle. And if something goes wrong you know who to blame. :duh: However, I won't be shipping it to you until it meets my standard of service.

Get together with your friends to save on shipping. I'm cheaper than many places but I'll still give your piece the time and attention it deserves.

Color choices are vast and if I don't have it in stock I can order it.

I hope to work with all of you!

Yes there is. I've witnessed Nate's work with my own eyes and can vouch for it. He's very meticulous about the finished product being right. You won't be disappointed.

There are so many clears it's silly. Acrylic clears, mirrors, super gloss, low gloss, semi gloss, high gloss, super durable, etc. I think I have 4 different clears on hand right now.

so, I have a gsxr 750 shock that hooks right up on my stock dogbones and frame, so Im totally stoked. The only thing is that rear tire on there now is a rock and I cant get good tires for the life of me. banghead
i have been doing my diligent searching around the forum and Im really interested in the cbr f3 5" wheel swap people keep talking about (or maybe they mean the 4.5 f2?). Could we do a deal where you do the machining needed for this swap and powdercoat the rim gold? From what I understand the machined rim should hook right up, other than the brake....? correct me if im wrong of course bonkonhead
let me know what your price would be for that job! (Im not pm'ing you b/c I think others could be interested in this as well)
Thanks! :notworthy:

I would need to know what machining needs to be done to it. I haven't done the swap myself or seen any real write-ups on it minus "it worked once I had some machining done."

Personally I think the YZF swap is a pretty easy swap and gets you to a 17" wheel that matches the front and doesn't break the bank....sort of. If I had a wheel to play with I'd be interested in trying it out. Right now though I have no time to play with anything. I'm booked into March already and know I have at least two jobs that the folks haven't booked time for yet.

I'm happy to do the machining and the powder but I'd need to know the specifics before tackling it.
