Those aren't mine I just found the link on another motorcycle site I visit and wondered if anyone here had seen anything like it (I'm googling it now and not finding much).

Stupid question but why would you want something near chrome /wwwthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif If I'm gonna make something shine why not make it all the way chrome. [ QUOTE ]
hey, how do you like the bike? No; that's almost chrome but not quite. /wwwthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif

[/ QUOTE ]NO!

Initial cost and up keep. These kind of look like polished aluminum in the pic but polished aluminum is a bear to keep looking nice compared to powdercoat or paint. Chrome on aluminum has it's own issues such as pitting over time. those are the two advantages that occured to me.

If the pic in question is a chrome powdercoat, it will NOT need polishing to keep its look. It will have to be clear coated otherwise it will turn blackish after it is washed a couple of times.
