Recently bought a s/h M-Trax 6000R road bike (Reynolds 501 tubing) at bargain price but the plastic coating on the paintwork was peeling and looked naff!

Decided on a strip down and new powder coat and different colour - here is the finished article!

Here are some pics :-

Nice colour, like the contrast with the rims while there's no brake block rub to taint them.
where did you get the frame coated?

Thanks for the comments guys - powder coating was done by Fentec in Peterborough (only a mile or so from my home so really convenient).
