Thanks for the replies on Powder coating. I'll give some of them a call and see what it's going to cost me. I would love to learn how to do it myself but I just don't have the time for any new science projects right now. It's a dual sport so I'm starting to have second thoughts on the powder coat. I have no experience with powdercoat except for a mountain bike that I think is powder coated and now that I think about it, it's all chipped up.

Seriously you can't get MEK anymore?

I wonder if this is how Al Capone started running booze. I could make a milk run from Seal Beach to Long Beach in LA County, mark up all the 'spirits' and be a BAZZINIONAIRE MEK and Imron Gangsta!

Anybody get's in my way I 'splain babe ruth and teamwork to 'em

These guys did some rocker guards and a bumper for a rock crawler jeep of mine a few years ago. They have a minimum but it was fair and they did a really good job. Sand blasted the rattle-can off of them and coated them, turn-key. I bought poison-spider guards off a guy on pirate 4x4 for cheap, he had sprayed them and they looked like shit. When they went on my jeep they looked new. Some of the smaller manufacturers of jeep parts will sell raw welded goods, finish 'em yourself. Worked out good for me.

If you want an automotive acrylic paint job I charge $50 an hour, plus materials. If the frame is ready to shoot its probly a couple of hour job. Materials about $50. So maybe $150 max. You do the strip and sand down, or we can have it sand-blasted.

Good luck and let us what you decide and how it turns out.

I know, everybody blabs on the internet, right? Here's a couple'a my projects just to share...

This is an older KDX frame I did awhile back, from when they were blue with white plastics. Became a supermoto showbike:



A DKW, complete frame-up resto I did for hire by the owner. Frame and all the front end pieces and brackets, tank, went thru the motor, re-did the seat, laced up new rims, was a show piece for sure. He was happy with $1400 for labor, plus all his parts. That works out to about 35 hours or so. It was plated and he would ride it down to the local cafe for coffee. A few shows too, of course.




And a Penton Six Days that was one of my own. This one I bought for $200 and sold it for $3500. I also owned one identical, bought it new in 1973. This one was a '72. I did three or four of these old Pentons and KTM's back when I was really into the vintage stuff. Have also done boats and cars. I have albums full of stuff:

A couple more old bikes...

Found a folder with some more pics...

1978 KTM MC5 400. This was the first year KTM brought bikes to the US with their name on them. In 1977 this model was a Penton Mint 400. I bought it from Rick at Vintage Iron, and spent a couple'a grand on parts restoring it. We were going to try to start it up as it sits here, good thing we didn't since there was a huge rats nest in the airbox. Was a pretty rusty hulk that had been sitting in the original owner's son's backyard. He looped it and broke the fender off and busted himself up and it never ran again. Was a stinking fast bike, but hard to start.





And the finished version. I sold this one to a vintage MX racer down in Carlsbad.

well you never know.

Iv been following that bike and there are thing you cant beat, the Rotax, and the MPG. but the Suspension would have to be redone, it works ok for me but im a light rider, not calling Eric fat, but you know.

That being said the bike has not changed much since 01' but for the forks and Gauges and some Plastic. you could look for a x-challenge now that is a bike for the dirt, this G650 is a commuter that is made for tall people.

It has now gone under the knife again and now has a 7.5g Carbon/Kevlar tank, a Renazco seat and a few other goodies. Overall, a very good machine that I will never part with.





Renazo seat and carbon/kevlar tank.



However, I spend most of my time when not a nursing broken bones on this.
