Freshly texture powdercoated swingarm

well....I've wanted to get my swingarm powdercoated ever since i got my bike. when i saw 66RRJOE bike, well it looked a bit off. I mean it was black, but it didnt have that same grit texture like the frame does. so i went down to West Coast Powdercoating in Concord CA. and well for a 100 bucks, they took care of me.
This is a 2005 swing arm with textured flat black. it came out really good, nice and even, and matches the frame perfect

+1 on the details. Might as well post up the mfg. and name of the color used if you know it. Thanks in advance.

BTW: Looks great. And what's a good price for a '05 swingarm?

Here is the info-
West Coast Powder Coating in
Concord, CA
925-682-4828
1090 Shary Cir.
Concord, Ca. 94518

The color is BK-59. perfect match to the frame

I got my extra swingarm for 100 bucks. i wouldnt pay more than 150. dont worry if it comes with the fender or shock, as you wont need it, just get the swingarm it self. its a good idea since the powdercoating can take up to 10 days if there busy. this way you can get the swingarm powdercoated, still have a working bike then just swap it out in one day.

I planned on doing the same exact thing this winter to all my parts except the gas cap, that I want gloss black to match the the rest of the tank or would it look funny to have it textured flat black also? I am going to do the levers, all pegs/rear sets, swingarm, gas cap, and maybe the engine case covers.

How much of a bitch is it to remove the swing arm, I would like to do the same thing with my Candy Blue. Or didn't someone have black stickers over theirs? If so is there any posts that have pics of this, I did a search but couldn't find it.
