Anybody have recommendations for places to get a frame powder coated or painted? I've done some searching and can't seem to find many places.

I talked to them today when I picked up my frame and they said probably around 40. That includes sandblasting, color, and I think a clear as well. If you want their info just let me know. I can post some pics of the frame I just picked up and another I had done if you want to see their work.
$40 for a frame and a fork? If you could give me their info that'd be great.

"you get what you pay for"

$ 40 was for the rack! For frame and fork it is $100 - $120 here is the frame I just had done and my track frame I had done earlier this year.

Earl Scheib did a great job on my car honestly (Irving / Western). Was considering asking them to do a bike frame too.

There is Chester Cycles too.. Just throwing it out there.

 

Are you looking for Earl Sheib just to get the job done, or something really serious?

 

If serious work, I would also throw UV in the ring.. From what I have seen, Yuval does fantastic work. I like his fades from one color to another. I am a huge fan of schemes like that.

My powder coating business is located in the Bridgeport neighborhood. Please check out my web site uvmetalarts.com and click on the Powder coating link. You will see our images of past work there and an explanation of what we do.

We have a reputations for high quality work because that is all that is allowed to leave our shop. We re-strip any questionable PC jobs (at our loss financially and to the dismay of some of my staff), because we know that every frame out there represents UV Metal Arts.

Our turn around time is 2-3 weeks for basic PC jobs, sometimes more if I'm not happy with the results and we have to repaint. On arrival every frame is checked for alignment and damage, free of charge. All frames are chemically stripped, low presser media blasted, and chemically treated for corrosion resistance under the PC. After coating, most frames and forks get faced, chased and reamed as part of our complimentary service. In addition to powder coating, we offer frame repair as well as the addition or removal of braze-ons.

Frames are $199.99, frame and fork is $225, and racks are $75 each. We also do rims, hubs, spokes, fenders, chain guards and stems.

We have working relationships with many bike shop's in the city, Amling's Cycle, Blue City Bikes, Boulevard Bikes, Rapid Transit, Roscoe Village Bike Shop, Upgrade Cycle Works, West Town bikes and Yojimbo's Garage (I'm probably forgetting a shop or two).

Oh yea, I also agree with what Duane just said before, PC is more durable, but wet paint allows for a lot more creativity. 

In case anyone is looking to get a frame/fork done, I just had mine done by the guys at Urban Powdercoat. $100 for the frame and fork, turnaround time of two weeks. And it looks great.
How much does a flat matte finish run? black
A frame and fork is $100 in any color found here.

Bookmarked.

Am I correct in assuming that the basic frame job doesn't include any chasing or refacing services?
