    The Black Powder Coating Continues (picts)

    I had the silver wheels on my bike powder coated black several months ago.

    This weekend I started to powdercoat the remaining silver parts.  The first try was the kickstand.   I will be getting some stripper to redo that :233:

    The left side handlebar and bar end weight is done.  I couldn't do both bars in my oven at the same time so I decided to the left and then the right side.  Here is the project, 1/2 done.

    Well, you were right the stripper was too expensive and difficult to find.  Besides I read that the stripper could cause burning. :192:

    So I sandblasted it. :002:

    Back on topic.  Much better with both bars and mounting bolts powder coated.

    I LIKE IT!
    Can powder coating be matte or flat black?

    I think it can be whatever you want.  I did the kickstand in a matte black, but did not like it.

    There are all kinds of colors out there. :002:

    It is fairly inexpensive to do yourself or even have a shop do it just as long as you do disassembly.

    Take pictures! :047: and show us what you do.

    I would like to do this as well, but had wondered what material the handlebars are made from. Are they alloy, or are they made from a similar plastic to the pillion grab handles?
    Does the extra thickness of the powdercoating cause any problems refitting the switchgear & grips etc?
    Thanks in advance  :028:
