Thought I'd get the frame and swinger on the CR500 AF powder coated as they were looking fairly tarnished, but decided to give them another run with the polishing kit. Didn't turn out too bad.

Just got a message back from the powder coaters... sub frame, spring, brake and gear lever only and he wanted between 380 and 500 euro! Fuck that for a laugh... I'll polish everything and spray the spring myself.

That's a great job. The fekin swing arm and wheels on my yoke aren't looking great at the moment. Gonna need to break out the elbow-grease.
