Opinions Wanted - Powder Coating
Hey guys. Looking for some of your thoughts because I just can't make up my mind. In the winter, I want to get some parts coated. My bike is the 2003 matte grey and I have black powder coated headlight stays and side covers. I plastic dipped the headlight ring and the luggage rack is factory black. I am getting a Pelican black box to mount to it for Christmas. Here is my thought and my dilemma. I want to get the fork legs, lower triple, and rear sets black to match the stays and covers. The triple top, I am thinking a wrinkle black just because keys against it and so forth. I want to keep the swingarm silver to "match" the can that I have on there. Maybe some day, if I decide to switch to a carbon fiber can, I will do it in black as well. What are your thoughts? My options are just do the forks and rear sets, just forks and triple, etc., get it all... Just can't decide. Help me make up my mind and if you know of a reputable and reasonable shop in the NW Burbs of Chicago, feel free to comment on that too.
Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game.
