Frame powder coating
Back in the mid '90's H-D used to race AMA Superbike. While at the Pomona race I talked to one of their mechanics at length about many things . I asked him why they didn't powder coat the frame. He said it was because you can't always tell if the frame is cracked under the powder coating. He believed you could have a small crack, one not big enough to crack the powder coating itself, that could turn into a huge problem. With the thinner paint, he could see any hairline cracks.
Just some food for thought.
