Just had my latest project powder coated along with a few other bits..
Not had a frame done for a few years and have to say the quality of the finish has come on in recent years.. After asking on this forum for recommended firms I decided to use
LSN Coating in Castleford in West Yorks..

http://www.lsn-coatings.co.uk/

as well as the standard finish, which is really just like a normal paint finish, they can also laquer - candy - metalik and flip flop finishes at extra cost...

Cannot recommend this firm enough, and my parts were finished in RAL 6027 Turkish Green, which is the nearest to Bianchi Celeste that I have seen... matches the Deda bar tape perfectly., all the threads were protected from the powder coating..

I had the following coated in standard finish Ral 6027 Turkish Green
Frame
Forks
Handlebars
Ahead stem
Chainring x 2
Chainguard x 2
Seatpost
Springer Forks x 2 in Black

Total cost £65 plus 2 x carriage charges from Wales to Castleford...

will post pics when its built...

Hi,
Did the £65 include bead blasting as well as powdercoating?
I'm looking around at prices for just frame and fork at the moment myself.
