Looking for some copper plating for a set of ape hangers. Any info on a shop to do this would be appreciated. Thanks

Any chrome shop can do that. They have to do copper for the chrome to stick anyways.

If you want it to stay bright copper...you're going to want to have them coated to protect the finish. Bare copper will turn green with a quickness!

I thought any chrome shop could do that too, however either they can't or won't I've found out. As far as turning green does not happen with plating that was the idea first time around but all I got was brown after awhile. This time going the powdercoat route. The place I sed last time is no longer around.
