Frame Powdercoating


I'm looking to tear apart my cr250 during the off season, what can I expect to pay to have my frame bead blasted, then powdercoated? It needs it bad, and paint is a waste when powdercoat is sooo much better.

And sooo much more expensive, (atleast around here). It cost a guy I know over $400 to get the frame on his Harley done.

Re: Frame Powdercoating

I've seen the price go up and down, the price depends on their debt and what the peice costs to replace.....

Re: Frame Powdercoating



I called a guy about 10 minutes from my house, he does racecar stuff...he said he'd charge me $200 to powdercoat the whole frame, and rear subframe. Not too bad I think. I'm pretty much gonna rebuild the bike, new bushings, etc...and new top end, and give everything a once or twice over to check it all out.

Re: Frame Powdercoating

think about the good and bad before you powdercoat most people dont know that its not all that great of a thing. its great for something thats nnot gona get dinged up but a bike will, and when the powder coating chips it wont stop it will keep pealing off. if paint chips you can just recoat and its good as new. im not an idiot i know my stuff im a machinest and work with powdercoating all the time.
although i have never seen it on a bike i know how its charictoristics work.

just think about the good and the bad befor you do any thing that your gona get at later.

good luck

Mike-

I understand what you are saying, and to a point, I agree. However, paint rubs off easier....and doesn't take the abuse the powdercoat will. I have seen alot of bikes with powdercoated frames, all of them still look awesome after 6 mos-1 yr.
