Hello everyone. New member here.

I have a question in regards to painting/powdercoating my forks. I'm trying to black out just about everything on my bike, and in regards to the forks, I want some input as far as which method I should use. I don't want the finish to come off over time or to cause any mechanical issues. If anybody has any knowledge or experience about this, please post your input.

Thank you

take it to a professional shop. to powdercoat properly, you need expensive equipment and technical expertise.
So it is OK to coat the forks then? Are there any areas that have to be left uncoated in order to maintain functionality?

Let us know how it goes. I'm sure I'm no the only one with pitted forks. I've taken it to a few shops for opinions, but all are costly in both time and money.

Maybe take a few good "before" and "after" pictures.
