My apologies if this has been asked before.. my search came up empty-handed.

Has anyone powdercoated the wheel hubs on your Bonnie (Thruxton, etc)? If so, did you first have to have the bearings pressed out? It would appear that the plastic/fiber bearings wouldn't like the heat required to bake the powder to the hubs.

Thanks ahead of time.

I powder coated front and rear hubs and the sprocket carrier on one of my T100's. You will definitely need to remove the grease seals and bearings first - it is an EZ job.
