I'm so happy, Ole Bessies frame, her new steering head and stem, foot pegs and battery box, swing arm and stands are going for a ride to the powder coater today. My CB550 is also getting it's new frame powder coated. I was going to blast and paint them but my blaster is small and is glass beads. The powder coater has a huge blasting cabinet with a turn table and he can blast every thing at the same time. I am interested to see how it all comes out. My CB350 frame is powdercoated but it was done before I bought it and it still looks good. The KZ440LTD however was painted by yours truly and it looks good as well. I wonder which one lasts longer.
