Rearset Color Change?

Is there any way that I can change the color of my stock rearsets on my bike from the satin stock finish to black?
I was thinking something like anodizing unless that is just for aluminum. I would also like to make this same change to the levers for the clutch and front brake.
I can't be the 1st person to realize that the colors don't match, but I don't really want to change them if I don't have too.

I thought about that but powder coating is more of a paint job and I don't know if stones and dirt from my boots will rub the coating off.

i want to say that powder is more durable than anodizing....i may be incorrect, but I did manage to scratch anodizing off and haven't yet scratched off my powder coat.

also, scooter powder coated my wheels and i am thrilled with them.

Cool, I'll wait to see what yours look like before I PM Scooter. If it's good, then I will go that way.

Thanks,

While powdercoating is more durable than painting, anodizing is more durable (wear-wise) because it actually penetrates the aluminum with color instead of just covering it.

+1

"Anodizing, or anodising, is an electrolytic passivation process used to increase the thickness and density of the natural oxide layer on the surface of metal parts. This process is of no use on carbon steel because rust puffs up and flakes off, constantly exposing new metal to corrosion. But on many other metals, anodizing increases corrosion resistance and wear resistance, and provides better adhesion for paint primers and glues than bare metal. Anodic films can also be used for a number of cosmetic effects, either with thick porous coatings that can absorb dyes or with thin transparent coatings that add interference effects to reflected light."

might I offer some powder coating services to you. I have many, many colors in stock and can surely make them look like YOU want them to look.

I do rear sets, all the pieces, and all the bolt heads to match $45.00.
YOU TAKE THEM APART. I will have them ready for pick-up 3 - 4 days maximum.
