Dragster RR Rims- Repair Advice Needed

My rear rim has been scratched up pretty badly on the inside and outside. Need advice on what to do. Get a new rim or have it repaired by a local paint shop? Can someone walk me through what the local shop would have to do to properly fix this? Powder coat or paint? Will the spokes need to be removed? I’m so afraid it will get fudged up if not fixed properly. I checked today and have been told that a new rim for this bike is $2,040.68.

Might be worth contacting the manufacture direct to see what they recommend first?

Dang...what happened? To properly repair the paint you will need to de-lace the spokes and present a bare rim to the paint/powder-coat shop.

A good auto body painter might be able to mask and spray to touch up the repairs. Find the guys that do body work on high end cars where you live and get an opinion.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Thx for the response. I contacted Kineo, as the guy mentioned above. They said the same thing, that the rims are originally powder coated and if i want new powder coated, they have to be disassembled. Hard to find reputable spoke guys around here. Not too sure how I feel about the touch- ups either, using paint on powder coat or however they touch up powder coat... Still waiting on some call backs to get more info.

Will pm you what happened...

Any competent MX Race bike technician can do spoke wheels. It's really not hard, but experience helps. It's kind of an art doing the truing.....really easy, but if you haven't done it a few times it can be frustrating.

You can actually do a decent cosmetic job with can if your good at spraying. scuff pads and a can of lacquer primer will make it stick along with some prep sol to de-grease and clean it. you will want to paint it in warmer temps or it will ball up, you can heat the can in hot water too and it will flow smoother, this will get you by until you save enough money to buy a pair of B.S.T. carbon wheels...lol!

If your phone isn't ringing..it's probably me!...

Cassie;
When using the brush make a steady rest for your hand and paint long strokes by moving the wheel,
not the brush.
It'll be way more even that way
