WTB: 21" front wheel -or- TRADE for Powder Coated set

Looking to purchase a Vulcan 900 Custom 21" front wheel, or to trade a powder coated set for an OEM set. I own and operate a powder coating business and purchased a 2009 VN900C to flip and decided to powder coat the wheels while they were off getting new tires. The wheels were done in a complex three-stage color utilizing a Super Chrome base coat, Glowing Yellow translucent mid coat (a lemon-lime color), and Emerald Sparkle clear coat (gold/green/orange metallic clear). The bike tins are OEM orange metallic and it's received many compliments, however my prospective buyer for the bike isn't sold on the combo so I'd like to just put OEM silver wheels back on it and give these green ones a good home.

Pics of the wheels were uploaded to my powder vendor's website here:

If interested in selling an OEM front wheel (I already bought a rear here off this forum) or in trading for a super nice powder coated set, please send me a PM or just reply here...

Thanks!

Prismatic Powders makes a powder that is a perfect match for that orange, it's called "Illusion Wild Copper". It's a two-stage that even matches the metallic shimmer in the OEM Kawasaki paint. If you have a coater in your area you should get a quote.

It's not as expensive as you might think. To do the wheels on the VN900C in that color would cost $180.00 in my shop, and then you'd have to pay for tire dismounting/remounting which varies shop-to-shop, but shouldn't be more than maybe $50.00 depending on your relationship with the shop. I get everything half price since I have so many tires done at my local shop and don't feel like messing with the equipment to do it in-house. But you should be right around $230.00 all-in if you want that done.

Thank you, Sir! Been watching eBay, but they're a bit too proud of their stuff. All the parts I list languish on there for weeks and end up selling for a loss, but somehow these people list stuff and think it's gold. I'd be a buyer at maybe up to $150, but no way I'm going $300 plus...these are just stock alloys, nothing to write home about...
