    Custom Powdercoat on DH/FR Frames - Lets See Them...

    All,

    I hope to take delivery of a new Banshee Scythe frame in the new year but have decided to have the frame powdercoated a nice colour. So to get some inspiration I am turning to you good people on the DH/FR forum to show me your PC frames/colour schemes to kick my little grey cells into action....Many thanks in advance

    Go raw! No worries about chips/scratches and stuff and much cheaper. I love the look of it, the welds and everything look great. Ive done a few of my bikes like this. My DH rig took about 6 -8 hrs total, considering all the nook and crannies, but heck, have it media-blasted!
    Either way, Ive always loved the look of a cranberry color, or something near the Raceface 'Rum Red' Color. @ sixsixtysix - love the color scheme, well done!

    Yea, give us some details on the VW. Is it a Corrado (SP)? Still rocking the super charger or upgrade to the 2.0 turbo?

    Used to be all black, got tired of the "stealth look". Wanted to
    do a "two tone" kinda thing. . . . ended up with this. She looks
    better dirty!!

    plan on getting my frame powdercoated soon...question is do I need to get the headset pressed out? I know I need to get all the bushings removed, bottom bracket out, is there anything else I need to make sure I do, besides masking which the PCer will do, before I send it over?
    Cheers

    I had my Santa Cruz Free custom PC'd. I just cleaned it up as much as possible and made sure to take everything apart. The shop stripped the old PC off of it.

    I did the frame and lowers on my Fox 40's.

    The fork:


    I don't have a picture of the free anymore.

    Couple more

    Did the wifes FXR in Rasberry Ice and my Gran Mal was done with a blue candy over a silver. Can't remember the name of the silver but it was textured so that the end result is the kind of hammered look.

    that turner isn't really a custom powdercoat. that's a stock turner colour.

    ...somebody's picky.
    Theoreticly, it's not a stock color, it's a custom upgrade.
    None of their bikes has ever been offered stock with that color.

    yes, i want to be picky. custom would be to get that turner in one of the colours not listed. i have seen that colour on many turners. it is my favourite turner colour and i hope to one day own one in gsg.

    those are a wild color hoop, works awesome with the black and pink IMO

    what kind of rims are they?

    dont have a pic to post yet...but i have a custom tranny preston in the works.

    has anyone used duracoat or gunkote on a frame? my gunsmith has done a few pistols for me and it seems pretty durable. in adition, im looking at doing an urban camo pattern, and i dont think you can do stuff like that with PC. he has all kinds of cool stencils and ive seen some of his camo rifles and they looked badness.

    Thanks Fishboy...I stripped it at work and ordered all the powdercoat at Powderbythepoundwest.com. Additives look really good on a darker base coats, but the gold/silver flake looks really good in the sun,especially with the pearl clearcoat. I wanted something other than the stock white from SC but nothing to crazy flashy, just clean. Waiting on some decal's for my Boxxer and she'll be done. Working/customizing your bike is almost as much fun as riding it!!!

    What do u think of the ML8 with the Totem, and how does the ML8 work for you when freeriding? Are you still running 6.5" of rear travel, or have you had Maverick modify it to 7"? Is that stem a little long for a FR/DH machine? Thanks!

    Boy folks, Some of your bikes look totally awesome! Where do you all get your frames painted. I mean which places do good work? I'm having issues finding a good place for modern fs bikes. All the galleries are of old road bikes. I'm just say'n.
