    ^^ I'm not quite sure what you mean.

    I'm guessing you're saying that they won't be flush with the rest of the paintwork(?). If that's it, then yes. The decal's would be raised. But that is kina the point.

    They wouldn't look as cheap as vinal decals, they would be hard wearing, and it would suit the custom-look of the frame and brand.

    (all imo obvs)

    Another option is 2PAC paint. Limited colour options, but apparently somewhere in-between.

    ^ and Langsters clearly do not belong here. They are a well priced, sensible all-rounder, that comes with some decent parts as standard. There is nothing slave about them.

    where powder is quite thick it will probably leave the alloy decal's recessed with a colour edge around it!
    2k colours will be limitless as its car colours

    [QUOTE=hugo7;2808135]This makes me sad.

    I'd love a comotion, especially in that colour(s).

    I think you should have very thin alu decals made up. Then glue them to the frame (ideally large ones wrapping around the downtube). Mask them off when spraying, then remove masking before putting in the oven.

    This would have a huge edge due to the film thickness of powdercoat.

    £700 for a Reynolds 853 fillet brazed custom sized frame is as good as you will ever get!

    You can have any paint job you want. It will just cost you extra.
    We mainly paint our frames with powder coating because it's tough. When you are riding your bike everyday, locking it up multiple times a day etc, powder coating last the longest. Also have you tried getting vinyls under a powder coat?

    (Because the guy at the powder coater's and I don't have a cost effective solution yet. I have been working with them for 6+ years and my frame was the 1st bicycle frame that they ever painted)

    How would you suggest they go about that?
    I'd appreciate the input.

    If you like they can paint your bike at Lotus...

    powder coat is tough but very hmmmm agricultural!! they is another way of having any colours you want from fine pearls/flips and mica's to the solid colours. also with decals under clear and hard wearing as powder!!
