I don't have personal experience with powder coating, but 2 guys I ride wit
h had a local auto painter due their late 70's Bianchi's. It was a really
decent, thinly painted job with the lug detail still well defined. On a
nother note, I couldn't obtain another decal set for my Picchio, so I had a
local painter blend a new coat and tape off the original paint and decals.
They also did an excellent job and the difference is barely noticable upo n close inspection. Rick RobbinsDunnellon, FL
