    I got my zb50 frame, swingarm, and wheels back from powdercoating. I am really happy with the work.

    I got it done in Monterey. Finishing Touch Motorcycle Painting. It cost me $255. First time I ever took anything to be powder coated. Price seemed fair to me, especially when I saw the end result. These parts where in pretty rough shape.

    Looks great......What did you do about the VIN number stamped on the head tube? Is it still visible? Can we see a pic of it?

    Thanks tmas! I made sure he knew the importance of the vin# stamp before he started. It is very visible. Each photo came out a little different because of the lighting.

    Looks really good. Do you know if he covered the VIN # up? For $255, I think you did very well.

    I just called him. He said that the stamp was pretty deep. He did not cover it up, just sprayed like normal, electric statically.

    He said if it's sprayed on hot then it can be a little thicker but he has never had any trouble with the vin# stamps.

    Thanks. How did the swingarm bushings handle the heat? Are you putting the VIN sticker (Peewee repo) on the frame?

    The swingarm bushing seems good. Think it withstood the baking process. There is some powder on the rubber, but that's it. Feels super solid.

    I will be putting the peewee reproduction vin# sticker on the frame. I have that, the tank stickers and a couple fun ones. I ordered through email and his website. Great quality, I would recommend them to anyone.

    I also got a new phone (Samsung Note 4) and testing out the camera. Each of these pictures is 16 megapixels and around 4mb each.

    I wasn't able to post more than 10 pictures in my post earlier, but here are some more pictures of the wheels. The super close detail of the wheels aren't perfect, but I feel like they are a lot better than before. A couple small imperfections. but when the wheels and cables and brake parts are all back together, you wont see it very much. The eyes will be all over the rest of the bike. So I am not worried about it but I am not sure on the how some of this exposed metal should be. I want to protect it from rust or corrosion and being damaged. I also need to pack the speedo gear in the brake hub with grease. What is the grease I need to buy and where at? I want to buy the right stuff.

    I haven't done a lot of this stuff before.

    I figured I would ask you guys. You are some smart and cool people. "You meet the nicest people on a Honda". I am enjoying learning the things I read from you, your experience, and your willingness to share. To everyone that has answered my questions, Thank You. I think its great!
