|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?|

|The name I have heard mentioned most frequently is Cyclart.
CyclArt, 2590 Pioneer Ave. Suite A, Vista, CA 92083-8427.
Marinoni in Canada used to paint frames as well as build them.

|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.
