I have had multiple motorcycle frames and wheels powder coated by a firm called American Stripping Company located in Manassas Park Virginia.

I have been very happy with the work that they did on these frames.

They have a very large collection of gloss and matte finish coatings to choose from.

They should be listed in the yellow pages.

Give em a call !!!

Check in with Donald at Fleet Street Cycles in B-more. He was telling me he had someone good who was local.

Sorry about the delay in responding !

The cost was more than I remembered ($115.00 ea).

This was acceptable to me though, as these wheels are installed on a dirt track racing bike. The finish is almost indestructible, which is very important when you are trying to protect spun aluminum wheels (Perfomance Machine Chicanes) from rooster tails being thrown off of other bikes.

Hope this info helps with your decision to powder coat or not.
