          I'm going to want to powdercoat the entire engine casing when I'm done with the rest of the bike. This is possible, right?

              Careful!

              Check with a professional powdercoater, first. Powdercoating as I know it, is statically charged PLASTIC paint particles. The plastic melts all together and cures when baked. It may not be suitable for the surface temps the cases or heads go up to. The area around the exhausts comes to mind... A quick call should set you (and us all) straight.
              I painted my cylinders and cases a high-temp metallic charcoal from a rattle-can with good results. Directly behind the front wheel is where it wears the most, but it is easy to touch-up.

                I've seen Homogenous County Choppers have their engines powdercoated, which is - shamefully - where I got the idea.

                I'll have to call a 'coaters, though.

                    oh man that top Hawk is just CLEAN, i really like it. Looking at those Hawks make me want a Corbin seat now =\. Do Corbins make the sitting stance lower though? Because they look liekt hey do and i have REALLY long legs, I don't want them to be more cramped up

                    hmmm... so those side cases can be powdercoated no harm done to the engine or anything? Mien are kinda scuffed up and I thinkt hey would look sweet powder coated Black like my rims, and i knwo someone who does powdercoating. It woudl make the scratches and scuffs a bit less noticible I think. Opinions?

                        Corbins are thicker. You'll be a little higher off the ground.
