You can also do a great paint job on that steel frame with rattle cans.
Just scotchbrite scuff and alcohol clean it.
Let it dry as recomended, and apply a 2nd coat.
Let dry for a day or 2, give it another 2 coats.
Give it a few days before you handle it, give the paint time to cure.
If you paint it in layers with good dry times, it will be more prone to dent than chip.
I am no painter, just someone who has rattle canned alot of bicycle, dirtbike, and 4wheeler bare frames, and with really good results.
Powder coat is much better, but spray paint is a fraction of the cost.
Last frame I did was a 660.
2 cans of primer, and 3 cans of metallic gray, under $40.
