Re: Pink Powder Coated Rims

Someone here has/had a pink gsxr and it was damned pretty!
I forget if the wheels were pink as well but the bike looked spectacular!
She had pics of it posted here with herself and matching gear. (as i recall?)
It was as nice as anything you would see from the factory.

Re: Pink Powder Coated Rims

contact your local auto body shops. they should be able to give you a good idea of where you can get wheels powder coated.

Re: Pink Powder Coated Rims

I know a guy who has an all pink R1 race bike - and no, he's not gay he just does it for teh lulz

How about you start off with pink rim stripes? It's way cheaper, it will stand out well at least on black rims and not least, it's reversible The latter can mean a big difference if you want to sell the bike later - lots of guys are too insecure to ride bikes with pink on them and the majority of potential buyers ARE male

Re: Pink Powder Coated Rims

Hey ya'll.... thanks for the replies and help. That bike of kittens.... man those rims are TIGHT!!! i love that color. Is there a way I can contact Kitten so I can ask what color that is and where i can buy it from??
ya'll are helping me out alot.. i def dont want to do just stripes... i want the entire bike black w/ bright pink rims.. kinda like kittens color. The bike will remain black.. so if somedayu i want to sell.... it will be easy to change the rim color

I got some powdercoating done here. They have a pretty good assortment of colors, including various pinks.
