Painting 5 stars + forks + tank

I cant find anyone in NY to powdercoat my 5 stars and paint my tank and my forks on my puch cobra 2 speed. Does anyone know of a place where I can mail them to and have them paint and powdercoat them a white color . I found one place and they said 400 dollars does that sound like alot .

Re: Painting 5 stars + forks + tank

WHAT!?

DON'T DO IT. Keep that white cobra original..or at least take of the original parts and then powdercoat some EBRs or something....

daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamn son!

Re: Painting 5 stars + forks + tank

That is what I am trying to do . The tank is dented and chipped real bad . The forks were bent real bad and the paint is half peeled off on the 5 stars .

Re: Painting 5 stars + forks + tank

Here is a idea of what just the tank looks like . The wheels are more chipped up . The forks are from a green maxi cause the other ones are wasted

LOL

This represenative from the ministry of arts says its fine to paint that relic, its got nowhere to go but up!

Re: Painting 5 stars + forks + tank

I agree Ministry of arts LOL . Where do I send this package to to get it done . Somone has to know on this site

Re: Painting 5 stars + forks + tank

Place we use would be less than $300. Shipping on top of that though might not be much different. Thee guys have done many mopeds and wheels now though so their prep is very good. Includes sandblasting.

Re: Painting 5 stars + forks + tank

I thjought there was a guy on here that does it .

Re: Painting 5 stars + forks + tank

oh wow...that is sad it ended up in that condition. are you trying to restore it or make something custom? what does the rest of the bike look like? do you have a set of the tank decals?

as far as powdercoating..i'd do a seach on the interwebs and see what come up..also a motorcycle shop might do it all...bang the dents out, clean the tank and powdercoat it for you...same with the wheels.

Re: Painting 5 stars + forks + tank

You're thinking of Mike Rafter / Motomatic Mopeds (from the Landsquids).

BTW, check your email!

Re: Painting 5 stars + forks + tank

do it yourself! got an air compressor? buy the gun at harbor freight, buy the powder and stick it in your oven for 20 minutes at 400 degrees. make sure to get it all the way down to the metal. or find someone who has access to a kiln. you can do everything but frames in your oven.

Re: Painting 5 stars + forks + tank

I dont like painting and it never comes out as good .

Is there a email for mike does he take it if I mail him all the stuff

thanks Harry

Re: Painting 5 stars + forks + tank

if for whatever reason he can't do it i could at least paint it with automotive paint (professional set up here!) but we don't have any powdercoating facilities at my bodyshop, unfortunately.

i'd do it for 50 over shipping costs (both ways)

where in Chicago do you speak of? I heard someone mention that Pat was going to get a powdercoat painter at the shop too, but I could be completely mistaken.
