I've had 2 bikes done, my 82 490 was done about 4 years & still looks good!

My 83' 490 was done last year, I had the frame, forks & swingarm done & he powdercoater even shot a few coats of clear on it all for $200

The only problem is if you have weld the frame it will dystroy (Sp) the finnish.

My concern is on the aluminum Honda frame my knee scrapes really bad, I'm wondering if that will take the powdercoat right off, if so I'm not interested that would ruin the whole look of the bike if it got all scrathed up right in the middle..

Powdercoating leaves a more durable finish than your average painting but if your knee continues to scrape the frame then yes eventually its gonna scratch the finish off and not look as good as it did before hand.

EDIT:I do think it would look SCWHEET though . If it were my bike though...I would look down the road..If in a few months its all scractched up..I don't want that because as you said its going to stick out like a sore thumb being where it would be on the bike.

I know it wouldn't be Red but have you thought about polishing the frame? And aluminum framed CR that is polished looks SICK .

I saw a picture of a dude that had polished his so well it looked just like a mirror..I'll see if I can find the picture.

Mine is polished, and I regret it, it's a pain in the *** to keep it clean....

no so good

We had a powder coated frame on a 03 kx250 and we still wore through it fairly quickly. I guess it depends on how hard you ride.
