Frame Painter Recommendation

We get questions fairly often about where is a good place to get an old bicycle frame repainted. We never had a good answer until about a year or so ago when a customer brought in his Raleigh Rush Hour in to show us. He had it painted a bright green color similar to Bianchi's Celeste. It was done by Summit Powder Coaters, located in Barberton. It cost $60, which included stripping the old paint.

Recently, we built up this old Santa Cruz Chameleon frame for another customer that had it painted at Summit Powder Coaters:

The finish is smooth, beautiful, and durable. You can find Summit Powder Coaters at 619 South Van Buren Avenue, Barberton, OH 44203, Phone: (330) 753-7040. It's a one-man operation; don't bother looking for a web site, and expect a several-week backlog. He says he's been getting more and more bike frame jobs lately, and is thinking of upping his rate to $65...
