However, the sissybar is black and my vegas is pearl white, vogue silver, and chrome... so i nede to get it refinished. I called around to get some chroming prices, then a guy i work with sent me this link and said i shoul dthink about getitng it powdercoated.

So now I am thinking about getitng it powder coated a pearl white to match the tank and fenders.

The quetion I have is what has been other members experience with powdercoating and potential prices. I know every vendor may differ a bit, but I was just curious if any members coul dtell me how much powder coating jobs have cost them in the past.

Then I'm not sure how good your powder coater is.

The guy our car clubs and all the old bike guys use in my area has matched everything ever thrown at him. Even the my buddy's See though green with HEAVY silver flake. I mean THIS is what people are doing with powder coating now... so yeah, matching a color is BASIC level ****.

I have no idea where you live but dig around the custom classic car scene or the import tuner guys and you will find the good powder guys. OR you can make phone calls and go and look at their samples. Powder to the really good guys is an art, not just a service. Just take your time to find the right one!
