I was just wondering if anyone on here does good chrome work, or knows of someone who does for a reasonable price. Below are the parts that I need chromed. If anyone on here can give me a quote on how much I'm lookin to spend that would be great too. Thanks !!

I don't know a good chrome shop, but i do know this get the parts you want plated as smooth as posible. Actualy polish them the smoother the better thats where the most of the plating cost comes from. Polishing your parts to get ready to be plated.

I have used Bright Metals of the heights for several years for boat parts. Gus does a good job and his turn time is usually only a few days.

I say chrome what you want. It's your bike. I'd avoid chroming a gas tank though. It will blind you the first time the sun is out.:icon_smil Thanks for posting this thread cause I've been needing some stuff chromed too.

Although, someone else here has already suggested powder coating and that may be a more durable option for you. They have chrome-ish powder coating. My friend just helped me powder coat some small things for my bike. All you need is an air compressor, the powder coating gun, powder, and an old toaster oven. He hung the pieces up on a wire. Powdered them and then hung them in the oven for 20 minutes at 400 degrees. They look sweet.

If you don't have the compressor then you may just want to see how much it would cost to get them powder coated.

I called patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited and he refered me to who he deals with. It's called Airline plateing of of I45. If your lookin to get some stuff chromed you can call them @ (713) 692-6369. Ask for Richard. $ 135.00 for three brackets is not bad, I thought it was gona be alot more. Thanks Moody !!!
