    That’s a rip off for the powdercoat, I don’t think I paid half of what you are getting quoted.

    What color are you going with ? If it’s a custom color it will cost more but 700.00 is ridiculous I didn’t pay that for my frame and it’s a custom color

    My bike is candy apple red. Do they use the same color for powder coating?

    It depends on what you want, I already had mine blacked from the pitbull build. And I like the black with the dark red frame [​IMG]

    So I have a buddy who does this and going rate is about 700 to 900 to powder coat and diamond cut.. that's jugs and heads. It's the tear down of the heads with the labor that adds on an average of about 80 to 100 bucks. But my buddy charges about 80 bucks a head to powder coat them, and about 40 a jug.. and diamond cut is about 585 for the nice diamond cut. They have 2 different cuts. One just looks cheap in my opinion.. but u can get that one for cheap, like 385
