With the frame stripped of everything, it was time to take it for sand blasting & powder coating at North County Powder Coating. My son, Eric, and daughter-in-law, Kristie, were visiting from New York and were promptly drafted to assist in getting the frame loaded into our trailer for the trip to the powder coater.
Once there, Kirsten Weik & Ricardo Delvillar got us set up with a black semi-gloss color selection and we marked the various “be gentle on this area” and “don’t coat here” portions of the frame. These were things like bearing surfaces and the frame serial number stamping.
Two and a half weeks later we picked up the completed frame and brought it home. It looked really nice.
