I had a place in Indianapolis who does "show quality" work powdercoat my wheels. They blasted the original finish off and recoated both of them for $170. It shouldn't cost you anything for a different color since they have to prep the wheels in the first place. I had them done once before for $100 by another guy but you get waht you pay for. The job was marginal.There were some runs and they eventually started chipping.

I just got a quote to do my wheels two days ago. $250 for both in flat or glossblack.


He'd charge me $25 for bars, or anything of that size.


He does charge more for colors.

I read that serious PC also prep their stuff. They blast it, acetone or MEK it, bake it to get out the oils, and then acetone it again.


If they don't prep it, how can they guarantee it?

i had quite a few pieces done for about $120 in semi-gloss black. both wheels, swingarm, fork tube covers, belt guard and some other non-motorcycle parts. you have to make sure that the coating is non-fading from UV. apparently many shades of black can fade relatively fast in the sun.

The prices listed above seem about right. I had about every piece on my bike done 4 years ago. I think he was charging $40 per wheel at the time and $150 for the frame. All the other pieces were $10-$25 each. That included him prepping them.


I ended up getting it at about half of what he quoted me because he took 2 weeks longer than he told me when I dropped it off. I think i ended up with everything powdercoated and the exhause ceramic coated for $260.


I think he did charge more or less for different colors.


The shop is in Kokomo, IN but can't remember the name. I know its about a block from Big Daddy's adult entertainment lounge lol. Anyone near there I would recomend them.

Here's another great source in the Central Indiana area. I know "firsthand" how good their work is. They are "show quality".
