If you can get it powdered for that cheap, do it. Good paint might cost 15, but ideally you’ll want primer and clear coat too, and it still won’t be as durable as powder

What color are you going for? I hear black powdercoats are generally cheaper since black is common.

That's only if your bike gets stung by a jellyfish.

That cheap? My local powdercoating place is charging me 150 for powdercoating and 75 for a sand blast for a frame only. I’ll stick to my 5 dollar spray paint from home depot

Yup. I hit mine with a rattle can and it looks great, and I couldn’t care less if it gets scratched/scuffed.

Perhaps he has his own gear or a homie?

I know you can buy the gear to spray it pretty cheaply, and then you just need a big oven.

My dad did it himself on a few things for his 56 Chevy.

Are you powder coating yourself? Thatseems really cheap. It's definitely the way to go. It will last much longer.
