The other day I picked up the parts from the powder coters that have been coated in Flame Red. Parts include the Frame, triple clamps, upper and lower, chain guard, stand and several other bits and bobs. The guy that did it for me did a fabulous job, the finish is as good as any paint job I have seen, very smooth deep gloss. So now the majority of colour bits are done but I still need to have the tank painted and the rear tail light holder painted.
Have disasembled the wheels and have sourced some new stainless steel spokes which was not a cheap exercise. I have noticed that one of the wheels is painted silver, the other plain aluminium. Should be fun trying to get the paint off the aluminium given it’s not on the out walls of the rim, just the inside bit where the spokes come through. Should take hours – great! I think I’ll get Dad to polish them up including the huge drums so it will be pretty.
