How much would you charge to get a bike frame looking that good?

Exactly what I was thinking.

Can you do the flame job on a frame?

Anodising!

I'm after anodising my Syncros stem black...?
I was going to do it myself, but the procedures involved do not float my boat.

hiya depends on the final colour mine was a 4 stage colour so costs more than usual to strip to bare metal etch prime, epoxy prime apply an orange groundcoat spray the main clolour then a gold pearl and 3 coats of lacquer (with a plasticiser) would be £160 if it was a single stage colour it would start at £90 and a 3 stage colour would start at £110 all plus the courier cost's forks if they are stripped by you start at £35 to £70 for a 4 stage colour.

cheers mike.

deals can be done if 2 or more people are having frames done the same colour because of the law most places will only supply waterbased paints
which are not that cheap at around £40 for 1/2 a ltr :cry:
