haha, yeah it is... for what it's worth, i'm pretty sure it's a one-man operation and that he works out of his garage, but the price was right and the results were good, so he gets my recommendation!

I have been thinking of getting mine done this winter too and I am like the OP, I will take them off the bike, but I want someone to take the tires and bearing off, powdercoat, then reinstall.

I got mine powder coated gold for about $300 for the sandblasting and powder coat. Evidently gold is the worst color option because all other colors are like $20 for 5lbs of powder, but gold was almost $80 for 5lbs.

I haven't been around much but saw this, and I would say save your money and just paint them. Powder coat is indestructible you say... and from experience it is pretty much the same as paint (just that your wheels get heated up and aren't as strong as before), but you can't touch up powder coat. (Don't paint them yourself either, cause I'm sure you will make runs in the paint.)

Also, if you force the bearings out, don't be a cheap ass get new bearings to force back in. I think my new bearings dropped in (rear) but I had to press the front wheel. (New bearings are the shit in the twisties, tightens everything up.)

EDIT: I used bearing seal on the rear and front just because when I saw them slip in I said F@#$ that.
