I have sent my frame out to be coated it black so i though i'd black out the hole frame. I wanted to have the chrome tubes coated with tungsten so they would be black also. The price was 50 a tube or 200 min. I tried to get some in with me but no luck. I can't afford that much right now. i had to put the extra $ i had into buying things for the bike. Someone broke into the storage unit were it was and trashed it. I had to redo a lot of stuff.
