if only that was true.
Full gun and kit from eastwood, is 160$, sand blaster is 65$ and oven free. maybe 50$ for powders.
I called every place within a 125mile radius who does powder coating the cheapest rate I found was, 75$ per rim + 40$ for the little piece the sprocket connects too. thats 190$ right there. Not to mention the little pieces I want changed like levers, the turn dial to tighten/loosen the clutch line, and some other small parts.
Also dont forget I garauntee I can find people locally out of the 40-50 people I know locally with bikes, who will pay to have parts powder coated.
And having my own setup, I can change colors anytime I want. I am buying all white fairing kit, so say I want blue rims...done, say I wana switch it to white with red rims...done...
