    paint a fork?

    has anyone ever painted your fork? I love the AM1, but it is too butt ugly on my sweet blue spot. I either have to change it out or paint it. Are there any good options for painting? Anyone looking for a swap?

    Your male friend must:
    1]Like pink.
    2] Be very comfortable with himself in regards to his manhood kinda thing. I can imagine the ribbing some guys could give another over a color like that.

    Looks like he did a nice job of painting.

    I saw a neato Klein with the neato Klein fade paint job with a suspension fork with the neato Klein fade paint too. This was in 1994.

    that pink 66 is dope ... but you'd better be a strong rider to try and pull that off!

    I painted my '03 Super T white to match my RFX. Turned out great but it didn't last but 2 years before it looked beaten. I'd definitely try it again should the mood hit me.

    Yep, you can powdercoat the lowers, even. Spectrum Powder Works:

    done deal

    I took my fork to get painted and it is done. I'll post pics a little later. Dude says it looks great though. Thanks for the imput. They were out of hooker pink so I decided to go with gloss black.

    I agree 100%. If you're dressing your bike up like that, you better be able to bring it. Barrecloth is riding a powder blue SX Trail with a pink Travis in Roam, but that dude can get away with it. Me, on the other hand......not so much.
