    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg I'm in Celina, Ohio. Come buy this stuff so I can clear my head and space of it. Haha! Everything in black is powder coated. I bought the fork assembly/handlebars on here and went thru them. New fork seals. New wheel bearings. Take it all for...$450 o.b.o. I will ship. Thru PM we can communicate and figure out the additional shipping cost. I will piece these out. PM me a $ and we can go from there. If you want the whole lot and pick up, I will give you a deal. Also if you pick up, grab a swing arm. Bring some extra cash and I have motors. Pick one out for $100. They all need gone thru/rebuilt. I forgot to mention, no title. Thanks for looking.

    I'm about 3 1/2 hrs south west of Cleveland. I don't get up there much. Browns just beat the Steelers tho!!! WTF!! Haha...I can see why you don't like it up there..Haha.

    What happened with the wheels: They were tarnished pretty bad. Dents and some scratches. Got them sanded and smoothed out pretty decent. Spokes are solid. I've just had some old spokes snap before. Decided to blast and powder them together and not risk them snapping. $20 worth of powder and they look good. I had my tire guy look at them and said they could be balanced ok. Figured if anything happened I can still cut the old spokes out and spend $200 on the stainless spokes. I've powdered over powder before. Actually some powder colors require a clear. Powder coating is still new to me but it's not expensive after the equipment is bought. I like to think of myself being at the middle skill level. About where my finances are too. Example: I won't spray bomb a wheel BUT I won't put $500 in wheels either. I have a budget. I realize what the retail is on these also. Some people hate what I do...it's ok I won't list an XS for 10k on here either. Haha!

    yeah I have the eastwood dual voltage powder coaing system, if you want any pointers Im glad to give them to you, If your uding the harbor freight sytem throw it out the window of a fast moving vehicle, I started with that one and it made the learning curve stupid steep, the thing never spayed good or consistant and it clogged or shot out huge globs at once, or the powder would just fall out the end of the gun when not expecting it to,
    the eastwood system is WAAAAAAY better , and the dual voltage makes it so you ccan get into recesed areas where there is a ummm uhhh some guys name field, crap I forgot what its called

    Right on man! Thanks for the advice. You are correct about the HF gun. I need a better setup. I've seen The Eastwood setup. Leaving here to go price it. I work for a company that has a powder coating system. Nordson equipment. It's really nice shit. Seeing it done at work is what kicked off the hobby. Again, thanks!

    my memory came to me , its called a Faraday cage, its what causes the powder your spraying to stick every where but the receced areas ,
    this guy was WAY ahead of his time, a lot like tesla, AND I BELIVE ENERGY should BE FREE TO ALL.

    anyways that's the purpose of the dual voltage system, you can turn the voltage down to reduce the faraday effect in the receses areas
    check out this holley (DEMON) carb I did, completely dismantled it and coated all the pices seperatly, this was about a year into my self tought coating.
