  • Rattle cans

    Can anyone suggest a good rattle can brand that I can use to spray my frame. Chasing a brand that will dry hard and not chip off easily from normal road use. Have used generic brand from AutoOne in the past but seems to chip off easily.

    The finish you are after only really comes from baking the paint...even engine black gets heated up. Getting it powdercoated is the best option and not too costly from experience.

      best (as above) is powdercoating.
      second best for easy diy, go to a real automotive paint supply place, and they can mix any colour in 2 pak in a spray can ready to use.

        Ahh yes forgot about that....even used it myself through an airless gun...pretty good results too after lots of rubbing down between coats. from memory though I sprayed about six coats then a clear final coat.

            Yeah you're right it was a while back now...memory not as good as it used to be. I sprayed a cellulose auto paint specially mixed up ....from somewhere in Osborne Pk. I used a clear laquer over the six coats of paint....wasnt two pac...dont even think it was available for the general public when I did the painting. I did a tank and guards on crappy Harley I had...came out fairly good too.

              Nickel plated my old katana frame many years back, looked great and had an excellent textured finish. Didn't cost too much either but it was over 20 years ago.

                [MENTION=35315]Channo[/MENTION] are you refinishing a bare frame or wanting to 'repair' the painted surface to an area of the frame of a complete bike?
                I'd personally opt for powder coating if you're at the bare frame stage - it's inexpensive, has a variety of finishes and is a durable finish... just make sure you blind off/tape up all the exposed threads you intend re-using.
