oh....
If a pair of 2" brass balls isn't working, I doubt that the 3" model will make much difference.

Ok guys we are doing red, now..
We have several shades to choose from, the same red will also be used on other small parts.

I have 'Red Wagon' here, but we can do any one you guys want. :)
Anodized does look good, but it shows flaws and is a harder application.
Let me know what you guys think!

Even though I like the metallic and the anodized finish, the red wagon would go better with the TSM logo and be easier to touch up as required .... I think  ???
aaahhhhh yes, I remember the good old days

Anodized Red!!!!
What other small parts are you thinking?
master cylinders, calipers, clutch perch, triple clamps, fork stanchions, axle blocks, handle bars,? I know powdercoat is usually thick so I'm trying to wrap my brain around it.

Oh yeah, what are you going to do with the swingarm??

I think a ceramic coat on the head would be more performance oriented, that stuff soaks up heat

There will be a poll coming for the swing arm, I'm trying to decide how to let you guys pick the colors, etc for the small parts.
It would be way too many polls

it would be cool to polish the swing arm 
but it would also be cool to powder it the same color as the frame

Just use your judgement Charles.Your taste seems to run about the same as the majority here. :)

I say do as ford suggests and use your judgement, or lump all the parts into one poll with one color choice for all the stuff.

Once i get the parts from the newest, yet to be named sponsor I'll photo all the parts I'm going to powder.
I'm sure we will be on the same page. :)

We have been debating about the swingarm. I was thinking powder, then I remember seeing a few powder coated swing arms that looked like crap from rocks, etc.

You guys ok with me polishing it out? Any other suggestions?
