For comparison, the cost for powder coating a typical cycle wheel runs about $120 each plus the cost to special order a color, usually around $30 to $35.
... added to the powder coating cost, is the cost of new wheel bearings and seals, which will run about $30 for the front wheel, and $35 for the rear wheel, not including labor.
Factor in the possibility of selling the original stock wheels (racers are always looking for an extra set of wheels) for say $50 - $75 each and the case has been made for saving a lot of time and money by just ordering the new OEM Repsol Orange wheels.
