That looks sick man. The powder coating looks like it came out nicely.

Looks really good with your blue paint scheme. It actually reminds me of the 2011 Daytona 675 in Caspian Blue. Nice looking bike.

That looks sweet, been thinking about doing the same thing, how much that set you back?

Looks nice! Looks like it matches the gold on your forks pretty nicely as well.

I took the rims to the local shop to get tore down to start which cost me $56. The powder itself was $15.99 for 1.2lbs and I was told to get around 4lbs so that cost me $70 with sah. I was charged $220 to get my parts done. I ended up getting a big bag full of powder back so you deff wouldn't need that much. I went ahead and purchased new All Balls bearings which I believe was close to $50. Of course i didn't get those online I just said screw it and got from dealer so u could get cheaper. I had the dealership put the bearings in and re-mount the tires. I paid $15 extra per tire to get this new weight system put in because they didn't have gold wheel weights. Plus they apparently had to take a drill of sorts to the paint on the inside of the rims to make the bearings fit. That trip cost me $140. And while putting the bike back together i was missing a few seals/spacers and had to spend $12 on those.

Sorry that was so long winded lol. All in all it cost me about $550 to get done. Could it have been cheaper? Yes provided I had all the right tools and If I would have made a few more purchases online. Still worth it?? Hell yea!

Looks good! We have the same taste (check out my thread in the pictures section:). My powder coating came to the exact same price but I had my tank coated as well.

Scratch that. $550 was just what I paid the powder shop. Bike shop cost me 200 which included new bearings. So we actually paid the same thing.
