questions about painting rear sets?

Would it be better (quality, appearence) to just spray paint my rear sets black, powdercoat them or just buy a set of vortex rear sets for 350.

got some xmas money so just trying to decide what to buy.

Depends what you are looking for. A good paint job will be fine, PC maybe a little better. Vortex will allow you more peg position options.

GET W/ SCOOTERTRASH for powdercoating!!!

He did my passenger pegs and my front heel guards/kick plates and they look AWESOME. The powder coating also stands up really well to abuse. I'm sure over time it would wear down in spots, but...
