    Olympic does nice work, too. Turner's stock coater, and Intense's too, I believe.

    I'm pretty sure they do/did Foes; for a while at least. I have some complaints with their customer service (IE being told my stuff was done and costing me a worthless trip to find it how I left it) but I'm more than pleased with Shercon in Santa Fe Springs. I'd trust Dave's suggestion as well.

    Olympic did mine and yes they still do all Foes. Two coats Green and clear plus they stripped for $160.00

    Olympic stripped and coated my hardtail in Kawasaki green for about $75. It was money well spent and the coat looks good too. I've only had it for a few months, so only time will tell how long and well it holds.

    So, I have a question- Did you just drop off your bike and they painted it or did you have to strip it and then they painted it? I am very interested in painting my bike. So this is good news to me! I wasn't aware of a place that did this. Good news!

    You must take the bike apart, They will strip the old paint of only! All the powdercoater wants is the frame, The don't have the time/ability/ know how to strip you rig. Hope this helps

    And don't forget...this means no bearings in the frame, swingarms and the like completely disassembled, and they need to be given explicit instruction on what parts to mask off (bearing races, etc.)

    Good call, I forget not everyone thinks about those things. Make sure your powercoater has experience with bikes.

    That's one of the reasons I used Olympic...they know Turners and know where the bushings sit.

    I had a bad experience with someone else who claimed to know bikes but failed to mask anything, despite my explicit instructions.
