Crashed Bike

A group of us just returned from a quick trip to Laredo while the weather was agreeable. One of our fellow riders (on a 2007 Yamaha V-Star 1300) hit a jack rabbit and went off the road at about 50+ mph. He was very lucky. He had a few bruises and minor cuts, but nothing broken. That's the result of wearing good safety gear. The bike did not do so well---bent handlebars, warped rim, broken off mirrors and windshield, seat torn, and a few other scratches and scrapes. He's decided to fix the bike himself (no, no insurance) and will likely have a lot of the shiny parts powder coated. Can anyone on here recommend a reasonably priced powder coating shop?

Thanks, all. I'll have him check them out. He really is one lucky SOB. And the rabbit did not do so well.
