Re: Chrome/Paint/Plating/Powder/Repairs/Stores

Does anyone know of a good source for GT fork standers repainting or powdercoat?

I see Ernie's 80s bike shop in El Paso does a good job of taking out the rivet and doing a thorough job and installs a new rivet but they seem very busy and not easy to work with...

Thanks for any suggestions or if someone wants to trade some MINTY chrome sets for white I'd be all ears. I kinda hate the prospect of changing up these nice originals...

Re: Chrome/Paint/Plating/Powder/Repairs/Stores

I need a bit of advice on some faded red Araya 7X I want to build up. Should I get them polished or re-chromed? What are the pros/cons of each?

   Thanks.

Yeah. polishing is a less expensive route, especially if you do it yourself. If you get them chromed, make sure they use a copper base. Chroming over nickel base is the reason chrome fails on aluminum. PM me if you wanna go the chrome route, I know a guy

Yes I've heard the same. Triple plate is the way to go for quality results. big_smile

Re: Chrome/Paint/Plating/Powder/Repairs/Stores

Anyone know who can paint up a ‘90 Group 1a in the three color neon fade?  I was gonna try to spray can it, but I’m starting to get cold feet.   Thanks in advance...

Please.....no Tuff Wheels on full on race bikes...original graphite’s only and pre 81 and never on a cruiser for God’s sake
Let me guess you were factory sponsored in
the 80’s...
Please no colored tires on race bikes...
So how many years were you a Pro....
