If you need anything beerslinger, let me know.
Thanks, will do.  Any chance you have the 7" lamp kicking around?

So just to get this right.  The wire on the left comes off that little block and goes to the positive.  The one in the middle goes from the starter to the other post on the block, and the one on the right goes from the battery to be grounded on the engine block?

Contacted the paint shop. 550+ to powder coat the frame, that's if I've completely striped and taped everything off. Not sure that it's worth it for a 250 that only cost $200.00.  That's a month's rent in my neck of the woods.

Holy shit, $550 and you do all the work. Send it to me and I'll do all the work for half that price. You gotta tell me what outfit thinks they can get that kind of money for a frame like that. If you brought it to me I would be in the $150-$200 max., and that includes chemically stripping the frame, media blasting, masking and plugging of any pertinent holes and capping all threaded studs and coating in a single stage color (Black). I used to do work for a CBX restorer and it was usually $500 for everything on the bike that was black.
Where is your neck of the woods?

Alert Bay, B.C. Top of Vancouver Island.  This guy works out of Courtenay, so it's a minimum 9 hour trip not including ferry costs, just to get it to him.  Where you located?

Probably a deal breaker, Dawsonville, Ga. USA. wrong country and wrong side of the continent.
Even at $.80 on the USD that's way too high.

Thanks for the offer though.  If it wasn't for the shipping costs it would be headed your way.

That price is highway robbery. Gotta be someone who can do it cheaper. It's even cheaper to buy yourself a whole powder coat setup and do it yourself!

o1marc - I may have to take you up on that when I move to Texas next month!

Problem is having an oven big enough to do motorcycle frames. You couldn't get close to one for $550. Mine is 4' x 4' x 6' and cost $3K for the basic oven.
