Hi. The swing arm of my Dommie project has a good set of original steel/rubber bushes in. I was thinking of getting the frame powder coated but I’m not sure that the swing arm bushes would survive the heat of the powder coating oven. Would the heat destroy the bushes? Or should I just get the main part of the frame powder coated and have the swing arm painted?
Thanks very much
........will destroy the bushes. Paint the swing arm.
Mine survived stove enamelling so you shouldn't have any trouble.
Rubber survives Powder coating and stove enamel unless they were on their way out anyway.
... rubber melting point, 356°F. A big pain in the posterior to replace those bushes.
