Just do it your self. you can even buy the powder coat kits and do that yourself too. Just bakes on in the oven. And its alooot stronger than paint

Well you'll still have to find someone who you will pay to take the wheel apart. A powder coating company will NOT take apart your wheel for you. Don't be a *****.

Don't do that. Once you use an oven for curring powder you can never use it for food again.....unless you have a death wish that is.

You can buy a cheap powder gun for a hundred bucks. The thing with powder coating is you have to prep the parts right or it's not going to work. A complete powder coating system will cost up in the thousands of dollars. 35 to 45,000 dollars for a complete system and then you will have to have the space to do it.

I have over 20,000 in my big oven alone and I built it. Hopefully it wont be to many more thousands of dollars more and we will be set up to do powder coating. Most coating places wont take wheels apart and put them back together because they are not set up to do it all. The best thing to do is dis-assemble them and send them to the coater then get a bike shop to put them back together. They will usually do this for around 75 bucks a wheel. The actual powder coating itself will cost anywhere from 50 to 100 bucks depending on how clean the wheels are. Sometimes the prep will cost more that the coating will so the cleaner you have them the better.

There's a thread about this in the video section. or search for "hotcoat" (google) for a reference. I see some others on ebay , but don't know if they are any good.
