Spur of the moment idea, stripped my bike yesterday, rawed the frame and forks, overnighted some "Black Chrome" powdercoat and shot it this morning. Turned out pretty rad, super happy with it. Goes from almost gloss black in the shade/indoors to golden
Added reply in a thread Can you powder coat chrome bmx parts 9/30/2014 7:02 AM

2ft high, 1ft low, 12feet long, 2 feet wide. Thinking of putting a piece of flat steel on one edge and try some grinds on it.

Wondering if there is a technical term for this coating? I run a small custom powdercoating and anodizing shop and was really wanting to try this out. I'm also looking into trying some hydro graphics on smaller parts like stems and hubs but people are ... more »
