    Powder Works did a frame for me a couple years ago and did a good job for a very reasonable price. Nice guys...

    It was less than a hundred to do a full suspension frame, 2 pieces. I delivered the frame disassembled, stripped, and ready for powder. I think it was $75, but its been a couple years.

    If you need to strip a frame first, you can either get a can or two of aircraft stripper or take it to The Stripper. It's usually a much bigger job to strip powder off a frame that most people realize. Last time around, I took it to The Stripper, think it was $125.

    +1 on Powderworks. I havent taken anything in but I have talked to him on the phone and is top notch CS. Looking forward to taking my heckler in after I get the anodizing stripped.

    I have a vintage Fat Chance that I want to powder coat, but probably not until over the winter. I may have a new fork built, and I want to match the color. Maybe later.

    Call 'em up. Ask for Greg. Tell him Walt sent ya'. 801 864 2666. They do sandblasting or soda blasting, depending on how fragile your part/frame is.

    FWIW, Powderworks is awesome and I've got multiple frames/forks there every week. They are bike (and land speed record!) people and understand what bike folks need/want. Just be warned that you'll get sucked into a 1/2 hour conversation if you aren't careful!

    Also, just FYI, $55 is really really cheap to coat a pair of rims. They have amazingly good prices.
