Barn-Find Classic Motorcycles

The new Buzz phrase in the Classic Motorcycle world is "Barn Find".

A "Barn Find" bike is a classic motorcycle that is discovered abandoned, usually in a derelict condition. The term comes from its tendency to be discovered in rarely frequented places such as barns.

Many of the buyers of barn finds tend to be motorcycle collectors and they offer to buy the motorcycle so as to clean it, fix it, and in many cases fully restore it. Barn find classic motorcycles are a popular purchase both in unrestored and fully restored conditions and have reached high prices at motorcycle auctions worldwide.

A genuine "Barn Find" is the fantasy find of many a classic motorcycle collector!

Motorcycle Chrome Plating

Even if your Motorcycles chromed parts are deeply pitted a great result can be obtained from an automotive chrome plating specialist. Even dents can be filled or removed.

First the plater will sand at various grits to cut away unwanted, rust, pits and scratches. The depth of the initial sand will depend on the material and its thickness. A heavy coat of copper plate is often used to fill the pits followed by a light polish to flatten the surface. If pitting is severe the chroming specialist can fill them with silver soldier or braze welds. These repairs are then gently linished to return a flat smooth surface.

Most motorcycle chrome plating utilises triple plating comprising copper, nickel then chrome plating. The copper makes a good base coat for conductivity, the nickel is the shiny silver and the chrome plating gives the nickel a lovely luster and protection.
