that frame looks almost like chrome before the decals were on there. thats a very good job of powdercoating.

Hi chap

Loving what you've done with your kona. Was put in this direction by another in the chrome thread we have but I have to say your powder coat looks quite lush.

Did you ever ask for a for cost as well? and were there any parts of the whole process that were positive or negative?
