PostSubject: Powder coat wheels    Sat Aug 19, 2017 10:20 am

I've had a quote of £80 for both wheels to be powder coated gloss black.
Thing is, this includes the spokes, and I was hoping to have stainless spokes and the black rims.  Anyone know of somewhere that would fit the stainless after the powder coating, or do you think all black would look good?  
This is an old pic of my bike, but shows the colour of it.

These guys did mine and im really pleased with the finish plus I had new ss spokes fitted at the same time. If you want black they do black spokes!

Not sure about the cost as they did all the pc on the bike but I had shopped around and these guys had a great price and great reviews.

Thank you.
Probably go with these guys, gloss black rims and stainless spokes.
Cost more than local, but local can only do black and do original spokes black.
I'm keeping this bike, and the heart wants what the heart wants. 
It's eleven years old now, and starting to get attention when I park up, I think it's worth doing it up nice over the winter.  I'm thinking, wheels, brake overhaul with stainless braided hose, and maybe V&H Cruzers along with other ideas.

Do any of you guys know, off hand, what the torque settings are for replacing the front and rear wheels when I get to it?
