I have a steel frame that I would like to have painted. I like the style and individuality of Landshark but that guy will only paint his own frames. Are there any others who do high quality work with this kind of customization?

If you are in the SF Bay Area check out D & D--my 14 year old bike with their paint still looks new. Of course, there's Joe Bell (who is used by Richard Sachs). I'd also look into powdercoating like Spectrum Powder Coating.

I have seen some of their work and it is beautiful. If you can think it, they can paint it... if you can pay it!

I had my Gios Torino repainted, non-original color, by CycleArts in California. Nice job which was done 16 years ago and has held up.

I had my Marinoni repainted by the same maker, a difference color. Price was reasonable and the paint was good, not great.

I'm going to have my Gios restored back to its original color and decal scheme, when and if I return to the States, and will probably have it done by CycleArts although Air Glow looks like they do nice restorative work.
