Motorcycle Chrome Plating

Bikes Restored Helpful Hint ...

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.
