Bruce at The Color Factory in Waretown, NJ does a reasonable job at a reasonable price. Turn around
is faaast. He does only IMRON but will paint any imron color you want, all he needs is the number.
He uses beadblast to remove the paint, does not damage the frame and for 10 bucks who would wanna
strip it themselves. Imron does chip easily if not done properly. The frames I have had Bruce do
have been done properly. I have had a local body shop paint a frame and the job sucked..Why? Round
tubes are not as easy to do as flat surfaces. Runs! If you have a local motorcycle shop that paints
thats where I'd go. If you want the most durable finish go for powdercoat however the powdercoat
process is more involved than other finishes and thus usually more expensive. However, the Color
Factory can give you a nice job, beadblast, prime, imron and clear coat for around 100 bucks. ould
be a bit more since the Stratus is larger.
