I recently got my mitts on a 625 SMC, unfortunately after giving it a good clean it appears thatt he wheels have passed their best in terms of polished finish and a lot of the spokes are rusty.
Can anyone recommend somewhere in Essex/Kent area that does wheel builds and painting or powder coating. I quite fancy a half black half KTM orange finish

Thankyou in advance

My bike and supermoto wheels are away at the moment getting the powdercoating treatment. I'm changing the spokes to Stainless while the wheel is stripped. I'll let you know what they are like when they come back. :)

Try Maldon Shot Blasting and Powder Coating in Maldon. They did some bits for me and am thinking of having my wheels done.

I had my R&G tail tidy done before I fitted it. The finish was fine but I thought £25 was a bit steep compared to prices for larger items. I reckon it could have been a minimum charge. They had some great ideas for wheels, and mine may well go in over the winter to be done. Would definitely use them again.
