Rick at D&D. He painted mine Team Violet so he has the color down and with the pearl red clear coat. Ask for the "good paint" and tell him to protect the interior of your headtube and bottom bracket so there is no overspray. I have been told his painting chips easy so you be the judge. You can expect about a 3-4 month wait. If you want to see my frame you can check under the "Frame Registery" under fat-tony

In the states, west coast:

Default If you're coming up to Canada...

...I can't recommend Toxik Harald (toxik design labs) enough. Really great work and quick turn around.

Call Jim and Susan Cunningham at CyclArt . They are really good people and do unbelievable work. Susan chatted on the phone with me for 30 minutes about a handlebar restore. Check out some of their work on their website. They have a full price breakdown on their website.
