Default Round Kingpin headlight

Does anybody have one of these for sale? Does anybody know if it would be possible to powder coat it?

My son had his 09 8ball headlight powder coated, and then put Harley black apes on it too. It looks good..

I would post a pic of the bike, but I am computer challenged. I tried to cut and paste but it wouldn't work. Suggestions? I am going to look for instructions in the web site that I hope I can understand else I could send email. That I do.
Thanks Diamond I found your post!

keep in mind you would have to go to a chrome shop and have it striped paint will not stick to chrome.

Powder coat will stick as long as you scuff the shit out of the chrome with a scotchbrite pad. You can get low heat powder now as well if your worried about heating it up to 450...

You could also plastidip the headlight, it will stick to chrome no problem. Plastidip is durable enough as well and looks great as long as you don't hold the spray can too far away when your spraying it. You can also peel it right off if you don't like it. This is the method I would do, cheap and easy also almost looks like powder coat except it is flat, but you can get plastidip clear coat now as well....

I picked up a bike that had been laid down. Took it down to the frame and built this for the wife a couple years ago. Powder coated headlight, forks, pegs, mounts, brackets...etc, etc. This is high gloss and the heat has not effected it.
