One thing I don't like about powder coating is that if the finish becomes damaged or scratched or everwhat, it's difficult to repair. The part must either be completely stripped of powdercoating, which involves using a propane torch, bead blasting, and then recoating the part again.
I built roughly 500 audio processors that were powdercoated in one of three different colors. So I've ~some~ experience with the process.
When my wife and I refinished the wheels for her 1982 Yamaha XJ650J I worked out a refinishing method that did not involve powdercoating. The nice thing about that was if either wheel's finish were damaged, it was a simple matter to repair the damage. If they were powdercoated, the tires would need to be removed, as would all of the wheel bearings, wheel weights, and valve stem ... and only then
the torching/bead blasting/powdercoating could be done. Then the bearings would be reinstalled, tire remounted, and the assembly rebalanced. Fooey on all of that!
So I'm pretty particular about what gets powdercoated and what gets finished in another way.
