    I had my brackets for my new clear view windshield powder coated, I think it looks more retro. I like the look better, will post again when I find time to install it. Opinions?

    I've always liked replacing chrome with powder coating and that looks good.

    I've learned though that it must be done right. I had some done and the preparation was apparently very flawed, with the coater just scuffing up the chrome a bit.

    A good friend of mine is a retired nuc welder, a member of our local Saint's Car Club, and an excellent painter/powder coater. He bead blasted some chrome bits for me and they looked like flat aluminum when he was finished.

    We used to have a good local chrome shop and he'd charge a minimum to throw one's chrome bits into the vat for about 30 minutes to remove the chrome before powder coating.

    I have thought about black chrome. Dad use to work at a chrome plating place in the 60's. He did some black chrome on an old Colt 38... Pretty sharp

    One of the local shops put all my parts in a tumbler and stripped the chrome off 100% charged me a lunch at the cafe across the street. Price for the powder coating still to come. If you get a chance look up a pic of " sonny " bike he has his back rack black, really looks nice.
