I LOVE the green, but are your spray jobs any better than they used to be???

Powder every time for a durable finish.  I regularly have to touch up the spray-black on my nomad as it gets chipped by the slightest knock [V]

The conventional paint finish looks great but will chip, a powder coat finish looks good and is bombproof.  All the Raven frames undergo a multi-stage anti-corrosion process

Frames look wonderful.  Does a powdercoat cost more/less/the same as traditional paint?

You can choose at no cost any of the 5 finishes for both Ravens (Tour & Sport Tour) from the 6 sizes available in each model!

It's defintely red for me. A shame about the forks.  Any way something can be done about them?

I like the celtic details, and if the bike is called raven it's got to be black!

Black=Always a good choice.  Matches anything, matches everything!

As allways, we can do just about anything, but it's down to cost.
There would be 2 options:
have use remove the powdercoat black from the 531 forks and respray in a complimentary colour, we'd never be able to EXACTLY match the main frame, this would cost around 75.00.
OR have us blush the carbon forks with a sim colour, or completely paint them to (nearly) match. cost probably around 60.00 (on top of the fork.)
Regards Robin
