The painting process

Depending on what you want done, I paint with wet paint and now I also paint with powder. With bikes, and anything that can be really, I strongly recommend powder. It’s durability is very hard to match. And it actually has some very nice color choices, but if you are looking for something that is more intricate, wet paint is hard to beat.

With wet paint I use Dupont Nason. It’s Dupont’s lower level paint, but I find that it works well and one of the big things is that it keeps the cost down. With powder I have been going through the company Columbia Coatings. They have a nice selection of colors as well as some very cool textured and specialty finishes.

More important than what kind of paint I use, is the steps I take before and after I paint your bike. So below is a list of the some of the steps I take, and options available, to make sure your bike turns into exactly what you want it to be.

• First off, I can dissassemble your bike for you no problem*

• I have all the bikes I paint sandblasted, actually glass bead blasted. This provides an awesome surface to start with. It also removes all the rust that might have started.

• I can remove any braze-ons or have any you would like added* * Modifying old forks to accepts new brakes is a definite possibility * Smoothing out pitting or dents*

• After painting is finished, all bikes are faced & chased so they are ready to be built up.

• I can also assemble your bike for you too*

So that's what I do! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via the Contact page. I apologize for not listing any prices, but shoot me an email, and we can discuss prices, options and answer any other questions you might have.
