Those parts are polished before anodizing to remove scratches and smooth out the surface.

They will be anodized blue, gold, clear or red. There will be some polished parts, as well.

Still working on titanium nitride coatings (understanding them).

Remember this lot?



The estimates from 5 companies range from $260 USD to $2,500 USD. The problem is that these places do different TiN applications - so it's like comparing apples to oranges - and I'm not sure what fruit I need.

At this point, I only trust one company to TiN coat the fork tubes - Brycoat. They apply the TiN at 750F degrees. They claim that "decorative" TiN that's applied at a lower temperature will come off the fork tubes - and definitely "functional" TiN that's applied at 900+F will collapse/melt the fork tubes. I've heard that Brycoat does a lot of fork tubes, so it should be okay - EVEN THOUGH BRYCOAT TOLD ME THEY ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE IF THE FORK TUBES COLLAPSE!

Pretty sure Brycoat charges $350 USD for the 2 inner fork tubes - 1/2 the price of most suspension shops.

Not sure what I'll do about all the rest of the parts. Will probably go for functional TiN on all titanium and stainless pieces - and decorative TiN on the headlight ring and other delicate parts.

I think it was mentioned earlier when you first posted the pic, but the fork tubes look bowed. Probably just lens distortion, almost looks like you have a fish-eye...

Do you think the fork tubes are tempered or heat-treated? My issue with heating them up to 750 degrees is the possibility of annealing them... though since the shop does a lot of fork tubes, they probably know better. Why didn't you go with the DLC on these tubes? Did I miss the part where you explained that?

Yeah, the camera lens distorts the straight tubes.

The pic is a mixed bunch of parts. The fork tubes for this bike got DLC coated. The tubes in the pics are for the motard project. DLC is better, but I wanted some variety.
