PowderCoat Color Suggestions

i posted in here because more ppl read in these forums than the mini section. Heres the thing i want to get my entire bike powdercoating, because it wasnt as costly as i thought it would be. So basicaly i want yalls opinions on colors and different color combo's. Now as for the bike its gonna be done to it a 2004 Honda CRF50 (FIDDY). What i have in mind is a all white bike including plastics. but i just dont know what the accent color should be if any(dont know how an all white stunt bike would hold up). But i also wanted black but it seems everyone is getting theres done in black and i like to stand out from the crowd. So please everyone chime in with what u would have in mind cause this bike makeover is gonna be my B-day present to myself .

keep in mind that colored powder can be more expensive than common colors like black or white, but it shouldn't be too much for a fiddy. White will look like t IMO, but you know what they say about opinions. If you want some color ideas, check out www.precisionpowder.net and look through the photos. He has done wheels for my quad in the past, and they came out great.

That sight does not do the colors justice IMO. Those pinks and blues almost glow in the right light. Call tomorrow and ask about turnaround time, should not be too long, if he has the powder in stock. Common colors will have a quicker turnaround time too since they spray a lot of bllack/white/red powder on a daily basis. JET

Anodizing is the deposition of a thin film of synthetic oxide on a light metal, such as aluminum, to prevent the further access of air to the surface, preserving the luster and preventing corrosion. The article is made to anode in 3% solution of cromic acid at about 104 degrees F. The voltage is gradually increased to a maximum of 50 volts and the process may take an hour. Sulphuric and oxalic acid processed are also used, and the anodic film may be dyed various colors.


Best results are on Billet Aluminum.....

cast aluminum and injected aluminums look like a$$


Dunno what your fiddy is made of but if its aluminum then I am willing to bet its cast and welded together like most bikes nowadays.

Will most likely turn out bad. If you have Billet pieces then they would look great.
