Anodizing Rims...

Has anyone ever had any experience with anodizing their stock rims. I found a place in Cali that will do my set in black and rebuild my wheels for $200. He said that they will look just a good as a set of black Excel rims, but for much less money. Sounds too good to be true, so what are your thoughts...

Sounds like a damn good deal if ya ask me. Most places I have seen charge aabout $100 just to lace a wheel, let alone tear it down, anodize it and then relace them, I say go for it.

If you have that done, please post on how well your rims hold up to scratches and wear and tear. I would like to have it done to my rims but I am always on my bike. I ride about 4-5 times a week. I dont want to pay that money and have scratches on them within a week. Thanks

Red anodizing looks particularly trick on red XRs too,... to me anyway. :)

TCR provides the best wheel lacing and anodizing in Cali!

Tell Troy at TCR that Jason from CFC Motosports sent you!

if you're in So Cal, try Danco. They've treated me well in the past. They have several shops and specialize in anodizing and the like.

Curious as to what you gain from doing this ?

purely a visual mod ?

      Guy's,  I have an 1997 Honda XR400R and I need to do the front forks.  I'm a big guy 6'4" 375lbs.  So far I haven't been able to find a setup for a big guy. Any suggestions besides losing a lot of weight. :-)

      Went riding on Christmas Eve  everything was working fine went through some mud and slipped dropped my bike tried to kick start it and the kick start went limp pushed it back up got compression again  kicked it over a bunch of times started to run again  rode it for the rest of the ride with no problems then on the way back on the road I gave it fill throttle  and it died hasn't started  since and now has little compression. Replaced the spark plug and changed the oil and filter and adjusted the valves but still very little Compression and won't start.    
      Any ideas??  Would greatly appreciate
